What kind of police do we want?
Panel debate on police provocation
This page is not available in English. Below is the Norwegian page translated by Google.
To a certain extent, the Norwegian police have the opportunity to conceal acts that would otherwise be punishable, for example by contributing to the import of drugs, by concealing themselves with criminal environments in the search for robbery and by acting in secret on the web to find web abusers. The limits on when such police activity is lawful and acceptable have, to some extent, been carved out by the Supreme Court's practice, and some conditions are more closely regulated in the Attorney General's circular. The question of the police's conduct has been within the prescribed limits from time to time appearing in relevant litigation, and where the court finds that the limits have been exceeded, the result may be acquittal.
In NOU 2016: 24 New Criminal Procedure Act, the Torgersen Committee proposes that some key main conditions from today's unlawful legal position should be legislated.
At this debate meeting, the Norwegian Bar Association, the Oslo Circuit, wants to focus both on where the boundaries are today and where they should go. Does the goal justify the means that can be used? For example, is it acceptable if the police are actively contributing to drug use in the user communities on the street in their search for suspected backers?
The panel consists of key players from the Prosecutor's Office (National Prosecutor's Office), the police (Kripos), and defense teams, as well as from the Children's Security.
The chairman is Berit Reiss-Andersen, a lawyer.
The debate meeting is free and open to all.
