@techsoc police says they "know" the "grouping"/subculture/clique (=miljø) he belongs to.

Beginning to look like a 'home-grown' operation.  Maybe a lone nut.  Maybe had some help.

With the guy in custody it now becomes a straight-forward police investigation.

Translation: We would like to round up his drinking buddies as well, but can't prove they actually did anything illegal.

H'mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Don't know anything of Norwegian Criminal Law.  In the US his miljø would be investigated and, if the man had been talking about his plan to the others, they could be prosecuted as Accessories Before the Fact and depending on the evidence Co-Conspirators.

Point taken. Make that "can't prove they actually did anything illegal. Yet."

Still, talking about the plan is not in and of itself sufficient in the eyes of Scandinavian law - the people he talked with about it would have to believe that he was serious about it. If they did not believe that he was serious about it and they reported it, they would be breaking the law by making frivolous reports of criminal activity.

No argument from me.

A quick scan of my posts on ET will reveal I've made over-the-top remarks so I wouldn't want to get into a position where every statement is automatically assumed to be evidence of intent to commit terrorism/murder.
