Inmates are entitled to allow themselves be interviewed and photographed. The Norwegian Correctional Service shall arrange for the practical implementation of this right.

The Norwegian Correctional Service may decide the time and place for an interview in the interests of peace, order and security in the prison. The consent of the police is required for interviews with persons remanded in custody who are subject to restrictions imposed".
