F. Rovik formerly of Norwegians Against Terrorism has said that the time was long overdue to issue a complete apology to the people of Sri Lanka and other Nations where Norwegian funds have been used to prolong or create conflicts write.
In a statement the retired Crusader against terrorism said Friday 22nd July 2011 will be remembered in Norwegian history as the tragic day where one of their worst tragedies have befallen. F. Rovik – A Norwegian retired crusader against terrorism in his statement said he was very sad that they were not able to communicate to Norwegian politicians about the dangers of providing a safe haven for terrorists and funding terrorists.
During his work in NAT, they were approached by many extremists. Some of them were Nationalists. They told them to solve the problems using a word processor instead of using guns and bombs. For the Norwegians, the terrorist attacks are a wake-up call. Now they know what terror is. Even though the acts of terror lasted only for a day, but they should get some idea of what life has been for the Sri Lankan’s who have lived with the Norwegian supported LTTE terrorism for more than 25 years.
What can Norway learn from this tragic act of terrorism and how can they avoid it happening again? Mr. Rovik said Norway should stop providing a safe haven for terrorists and war criminals. The Norwegian politicians should respect human rights; stop doing the opposite of their election promises to the poor and needy.
