Posted by African Press International on August 13, 2012
He was expected to take political responsibilty because of the many lives lost.
In a surprise move, the PM told the media that he agrees with the conclusions made in the report and will use its recommendations therein to improve security throughout the country.
Norway was bombed by terrorist Breivik who went on a killing spree 22nd july last year. 77 people lost their lives.
The government appointed a commission last year after the terrorist act and the commission has just released its report whereby those to blame in top positions are directly pinpointed for the shortfalls..
The report criticises the police very strongly for having acted late to save lives despite having known of the first bombing taking place..
The report says the police had time to stop killings if they had acted between 15.50 and 16.06 after receiving reports of the first bombing at the prime mnister’s office.
The bomber had enough time to drive away from the city centre and to continue killings in Utöya.
