Confessed bomber retracts his confession

Johnny Olsen, who admitted to be behind two bomb attacks against the Blitz house in 1994 and 1995 after seeing «The Passion of Christ,» has retracted his confession.

«We are taking into account that he has retracted his confession when it comes to the attacks on the Blitz house, but we are still working on the case,» said Police Prosecutor Trine Krok at Oslo police district, to TV 2 Nettavisen.

Wants peace
Olsen admitted to being behind the attacks in the Norwegian paper Dagbladet about a month ago.

«It is important that two of the worst attacks in Norwegian history are solved,» Olsen explained to the paper at the time. «This is my way of creating more peace in the world. I’m tired of all the fighting and I want pace with myself and others.»

It was allegedly the impact of the film «The Passion of Christ» which made him contact the police and to give his confession.

Jesus lives
After Olsen had turned himself in, he was held on remand by Oslo county court.

«Jesus lives. I want to put my old life behind me,» Olsen explained before his court appearance.

Kork informed that Olsen has been transferred to Ringerike jail to sentence a violence conviction.

Kork did not wish to comment whether or not Olsen’s change in his statement weakens the police’s case against him.

«I do not wish to comment this because we are still investigating the case,» Kork said to TV 2 Nettavisen. «We are taking steps in the investigation which we claim are necessary, and then we have to see how far we get with that.»

Olsen is also being investigated in connection with a hidden weapon storage in Vestfold which he revealed in connection with his confessions.

The 41-year-old has previously been convicted to 18 years in jail for the murders of two men in Hadeland.

Olsen’s lawyer, Fridtjof Feydt, said he did not wish to comment the case when TV 2 Nettavisen contacted him.
