Norway has expelled a Russian diplomat linked to the case of a Norwegian national recently arrested on espionage charges. The Nordic country's Foreign Ministry summoned the Russian ambassador to inform him that the diplomat had been asked to leave because he "performed actions that are not compatible with his role and status as a diplomat," national broadcaster NRK reported on August 19. Norway's PST intelligence agency arrested an Indian-born Norwegian national on August 15 while he was meeting a Russian intelligence officer at a pizza restaurant in the capital, Oslo. Norwegian authorities did not name the suspect, but broadcaster NRK identified him as 50-year-old Harsharn Singh Tathgar. He was remanded in custody for four weeks on August 17. During interrogation, the suspect reportedly admitted to handing over information to and receiving money from the Russian diplomat. Norway has not named the diplomat in question but stated that he worked in the trade section of the Russian Embassy. Tathgar worked as a project manager in the oil and gas department of DNV GL, the world's largest classification society that advises the maritime, oil and gas, and renewable energy industries.

Good. All the better with fewer Russian spies on Western soil.
