The Act on the extension of the scope for investigation and prosecution of terrorist crimes

An empirical research

Summary

The purpose of this Act is to enable the police and the public prosecution service to initiate criminal proceedings as early as possible in order to prevent terrorist attacks from taking place. This initial report covers a period of one year, commencing in February 2007 and ending in February 2008 and focuses primarily upon the use of the new Act in practice, as well as upon the experiences that have been gained in that regard during the first year in which the new Act has been in force.
