Crime and justice: Figures from the police show that the number of serious violent incidents in Oslo almost doubled from 2022 to 2023, writes Aftenposten.

The number of stabbings also increased, from around 20 in 2022 to over 50 last year – and in the last six months alone there have been nine shooting incidents in the capital.

– It is a development that is going in the wrong direction. It is a very serious situation, says Helge André Njåstad.

– The combination of crime increasing and the number of police man-years falling is not sustainable. It is no longer just the FRP that talks about Swedish conditions. They also do that in the police, claims the politician.

He repeats the FRP’s proposal to introduce stricter punishments for crime committed in certain zones, which has been introduced in Denmark, among others.
