under the auspices of Norway’s World War II collaborationist Quisling government.
As an officer in Oslo, Eilifsen got himself in hot water with the Reichskommissar Josef Terboven when he supported several
constables’ refusal to arrest girls who shirked the national labor conscription.
Terboven’s orders-must-be-followed jag was excessive even by the standards of a fascist puppet state, and a court told him to get lost.
So, Terboven “appealed” by keeping Eilifsen in custody until later that day, when he arranged a do-over proceeding with handpicked judges
and no defense.
The disobedient cop was shot the next sunrise. Three days later the dubious execution was retroactively legalized by a law subjecting
the police to the military code, a measure sometimes sarcastically dubbed the "Lex Eilifsen".
