Norway has been unable to deport radical Islamic cleric Mullah Krekar but found a way on Monday to keep him in confinement at least for a few years. A city judge in Oslo sentenced Krekar on Monday to five years in jail for making threats against a former government minister and several identified Muslims who he felt have abandoned their faith.
It was here, at a meeting with members of the Foreign Press Association in Oslo, that Mullah Krekar made death threats against former cabinet minister Erna Solberg.

Krekar and his long-time defense attorney Brynjar Meling appealed on the spot, but it now looks likely that Krekar will spend time in custody.
Hes been in Norway since 1991 when he arrived as a refugee from northern Iraq. He later violated the terms of his asylum, however, when he repeatedly traveled back to Iraq to lead the guerrilla group Ansar al-Islam. Krekar has voiced support for Islamic terrorists, encourages holy war and, after years of controversy, was ultimately declared a threat to national security in Norway. Local authorities have been unable to deport him, however, because they lack guarantees he wont be executed back home in Iraq.
