SNIPPET: "Mullah Krekar, the Norway-based Islamic extremist, is under investigation by German police for seeking to establish a Europe-wide terror network, Sweden's Expo magazine has reported.   The Germans have asked Sweden to interrogate a 28-year-old man from Västerås, who was in contact with Krekar in 2010.    "The German police have requested that we interrogate him, and they want it done in a court of law," Prosecutor Ronnie Jakobsson told the magazine.    Although the man is not suspected of any crime, German police believe that he has information about an Islamist terror network they suspect Krekar and another nine people were seeking to establish.    According to the German investigation, the 28-year-old was in contact with other members of the network via Paltalk, a US-based chat service in 2010.    He also wrote articles for jihadist internet sites administered by Krekar's group, and had direct contact with Krekar on at least two occasions."

“Mullah Krekar questioned about the terror by the German police”

Norway Today

SNIPPET: “German police suspect that Mullah Krekar leads a European terrorist network, and has been in Norway to interrogate him.

It confirms the District Attorney Marit Bakkevik to Norwegian Broadcast NRK.

- We have assisted them when they were here and interrogated Krekar and another person about their views on this network, said the prosecutor.

Ten people are suspected of being part of the network, writes the Swedish web page Expo, who works with the investigation of the environments which stands for intolerance. All of the suspect shall have Iraqi origins, but living with one exception today in Norway, Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, according to the website.”

Krekar has friends inside the Norwegian administration. Maybe even the military and police.

I didn’t know that (or else I just missed it) and I’ve been posting on Krekar for years.

Do you have a url I can look at with that info?

Thanks Hardraade.
