Norwegian Prosecuting Authority

Norwegian Prosecuting Authority

Norwegian Prosecuting Authority (Norwegian: Påtalemyndigheten) is a body subordinate to the Norwegian Council of State.

This body is responsible for legal prosecutions in Norway.[1] It is divided into three branches. The third branch is the Prosecuting Authority in the Police. The first two, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Public Prosecutors, are called "the Higher Prosecuting Authority" (Norwegian: Den høyere påtalemyndighet).[2] Public Prosecutors work on a regional basis,[3] whereas the Director of Public Prosecutions has the coordinative leadership. The current Director of Public Prosecutions is Tor-Aksel Busch.[4]
