8 Jan. 46

which is contained in the archives and is Document D-472. I am quoting a sentence only because of the interesting contrast:

"With the occupation of Denmark and Norway on the 9th of April 1940 only a few hours before the landing of British troops in these territories, the battle began against the Western Powers."
Then it goes on to Holland and Belgium.

It is quite clear that, whoever else had knowledge or whoever else was ignorant, this Defendant Ribbentrop had been up to hi neck in the Quisling plottings, and it is made clear to him well week before the invasion started, that the Wehrmacht and the Defendant Keitel had long been preparing this particular act of aggression.

I think, My Lord, that is really all the evidence on the aggression against Norway because, again, the story was put forward fully by my friend, Major Elwyn Jones.

THE PRESIDENT: We will adjourn now.

[The Tribunal adjourned until 9 January 1946 at 1000 hours.]
