Crown Princess Mette-Marit's nephew served in Afghanistan

Today an article came out in VG/NTB/Dagbladet where it was revealed that Mette-Marit's nephew, Joachim, had served in Afghanistan for 6 months recently.

"I think the Taliban are looking to get things that catches attention. The bigger tanks they can blow up - the better. I thought that it was okay that people there didn't know I was Mette-Marit's nephew, as long as I was in Afghanistan."

The son of the Norwegian defense minister was refused the right to serve in Afghanistan based, on the security assessment. The head of the army refused to say anything about which security assessment was the foundation for letting Høiby go.
