The independence of the prosecution authority The Norwegian Criminal Procedure Act article 55 states clearly that the prosecuting authority is independent in a specific case. No one can instruct the prosecuting authority in a specific case or reverse a prosecution decision. --- Some practical information regarding the implementation of the agreement: - In accordance with the Agreement Article 11, Norwegian arrest warrants will be issued on the form annexed to the Agreement (AW). - Norway will be able to act on SIS records based on already issued EAWs (FD 2002/584/JHA original or amended EAW-form) by the EU member states. If a person is arrested on the basis of a hit in the SIS II/Interpol red notice, the competent Norwegian authority will need to receive the translated EAW/AW as soon as possible and at the latest by 7 days. Norway accepts translations into Norwegian, Danish, Swedish and English. - Regarding incoming EAWs, Norway will accept both AW, EAW and the amended EAW-form (2009) unless the courts should rule otherwise. For the in absentia-cases, we therefore accept the amended EAW-form, but will in some cases need a guarantee in accordance with the Article 8 (1) of the Agreement. Receiving authority in Norway: - The translated Arrest warrant (AW)/EAW may be forwarded via the SIS, or sent directly to the Public Prosecutor or to the Chief of Police. The arrest warrant will then be forwarded to the court for an assessment of the criteria for surrender, before being finally decided on (as the main rule) by a prosecutor.” See also Rundskriv om nordisk-europeisk arrestordre: https://www.regjeringen.no/no/dokumenter/g-022020-rundskriv-om-nordisk-europeisk-arrestordre/id2691090/
