The Oslo police have called a press conference about the mass shooting in Oslo earlier this year.
It takes place at 11 a.m. on Friday at the police station in Greenland.
It is not known what the police will present at the press conference, but the Oslo police district states that police prosecutor Børge Enoksen is present to inform about the update.
Has refused to explain himself
Zaniar Matapour shot and killed two people and injured 21 outside the two pubs Per på kørnket and London in central Oslo on 25 June. He was armed with a submachine gun and a pistol when he attacked.
He has so far refused to explain himself to the police. Therefore, there are still many unanswered questions about what happened. At least for the public. Two of them are: What was the motive for attacking? And was it a terrorist attack?
The police have so far also not concluded whether he had accomplices.
On Monday, there were some new answers. District court judge Lili Noelle Sverdrup then ruled that Matapour can still be kept in custody and in complete isolation.
The 43-year-old is charged with murder, attempted murder and terrorism. Since he ended up in custody, he has been in solitary confinement in prison.
Called it terror early on
The police’s security service (PST) already referred to the attack as an extreme Islamist terrorist act on the same day.
Matapour has a long history of violence and threats. PST believes he belonged to an extreme Islamist milieu. They have known him since 2015. At the latest in May, they had a so-called concern conversation with him.
PST’s statements made Matapour’s defenders see red. They believed that the security service distributed blame far too soon when they branded the act as terrorism.
The Oslo police have so far not wanted to say whether they have come any closer to a conclusion as to whether it actually was. They will not say whether the hypothesis of a terrorist attack has been strengthened or weakened after 13 weeks of investigation.
