Norway Gunman may escape prison

Anders Behring Breivik, responsible for the killing of 77 people in Norway four months ago, may escape prison, it has been revealed. The gunman set off a car bomb in Oslo, killing eight people, before heading to the island of Utoeya disguised as a policeman, where he shot dead 69 teenagers.


Behring Breivik has been assessed by psychiatrists, who have concluded that Breivik was insane at the time of the murders. Norwegian website VG stated that Mr Breivik was suffering from “psychosis”, a condition which changed his mental state and dramatically affected his judgement.

This report, which was presented to the Oslo district court this morning, still needs to be examined by a medical commission in order to make sure it meets the professional criteria required. However, if it is accepted as a viable experts’ opinion it could mean that Behring Breivik could not be sentenced to a prison term, but would instead be transferred to a mental institution, where he would undergo psychiatric treatment.

Terrorist Breivik Demands Government Resign

Utoya:Paradise Lost

Norwegian assassin Anders Behring Breivik , the man who has admitted carrying out two separate terrorist attacks over a week ago, has issued a list of demands which his own lawyer brands as “unrealistic”.

Breivik,who was responsible for the death of 77 people during a bomb blast in Oslo and a gun attack on a Labour youth camp on Utoya island, has issued two lists to his lawyer Geir Lippestad.

Lippestad, who last week admitted his client was insane, opened up to the Norwegian people as funerals of the victims are ongoing.

Breivik`s first list contains no unusual elements but it is his second list which has enraged the Norwegian people, who remain in mourning after the most damning attacks in it`s history.

The main provisions of the list are that the Norwegian government,led by Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, resign immediately. Breivik also demands that Japanese investigators interrogate him as they “understand the idea and values of honour”.

The right wing extremist has already shown his dislike of the current Labour led government, bombing government quarters in Oslo and attacking the Labour youth camp. Lippestad, who is under close personal security due to the intensity of this case, revealed his clients demands are “unrealistic,far,far from the real world and shows he doesn`t understand how society works.”

Breivik remains in solitary confinement but has agreed to be evaluated by psychiatrists.Norwegian authorities have stated he is being very co-operative and they believe he acted alone as their is as of yet no reason to suggest otherwise.

Eight people were killed when a car bomb exploded outside government buildings in Oslo on 22 July. Within hours of the explosion, Breivik opened fire on people at the youth camp, killing 69 people. The police struggled to apprehend Breivik for some time, due to the distance between Oslo and Utoya, and the lack of special forces near the small island.

Once police arrived on Utoya, the gunman surrendered without fight,believing he had cemented his name among a list of martyrs.
