Norwegian court upholds expulsion of Mullah Krekar.

OSLO, Norway: The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a government order to expel the founder of Ansar al-Islam, a suspected Islamic terror group in Iraq, as a threat to Norwegian national security.

Two lower courts had also upheld a government order to deport Kurdish leader Mullah Krekar, a refugee in Norway since 1991. Even though the Supreme Court ruling was final, conditions in Iraq made it unlikely that he would promptly be returned to his homeland.

“There is clearly enough evidence that Krekar is a threat to national security through his presence in Norway,” said Hans Flock, one of the Supreme Court justices.
