Crime and justice: 46-year-old Bhatti is charged with complicity in the terrorist shooting in Oslo on 25 June 2022, where two people were shot and killed. It was Zaniar Matapour, who is now charged with terrorism, who opened fire on the pubs Per på Hjørnet and London Pub.

Arfan Bhatti has been imprisoned in Pakistan for a long time, and countless court hearings have been held to have him extradited to Norway. On Friday, the message came that the extradition was finally in order, and that Bhatti was on his way to Norway.

At 18.30 the plane landed on Norwegian soil, and an hour and a half later the car with Bhatti drove into Kongsvinger prison.

The Oslo police stated earlier on Friday that Bhatti will be produced as a witness in the 25 June trial on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.
