Norwegian Court Orders Shooter to Remain In Isolation for Four More Weeks

Anders Behring Breivek was brought into an Oslo courtroom for the second time since the July 22 bombing and shooting spree that left nearly eighty people, many of them teens, dead. The hearing, attended by attorneys representing the victims of the attack but not the victims themselves, was to determine whether Breivek would be allowed to come out of his isolation detention or not. In a twenty minute hearing, the court concluded that it was in the best interest of justice that he be held for another four weeks in his complete isolation.

Judge Hugo Abelseth said that Breivek had complained about the monotony of the isolated detention and had called it a “sadistic torture method” but agreed that it was best to continue the isolation for another four weeks. The admitted killer will return to court on September 19. Until then, Breivek is being held alone in his cell with no access to visitors, television, magazines or the Internet.

It has been learned that Breivek had requested to wear something unusual, a long black tuxedo, to this court hearing, but was denied that request by the judge who said that such clothing would be overly dramatic. He arrived in a dark suit, in a darkened car with a number of police escorts to ensure his safety.

Earlier in the week, Breivek led the Norway police on an eight hour tour of Utoya Island, recreating the horrific events as he shot and killed almost seventy people there, many of them as they tried to swim to safety. He reportedly showed no emotion as the methodically mimicked the actions of that day, including where he stood when he impersonated an officer to trick the youths.

Police will be investigating the island again, this time looking for a possible camera. In his manifesto, written before the attacks and in interviews after his arrest, Breivek alludes to footage of the carnage, footage that he had planned to send to television stations around Norway. So far, there has been no evidence of a camera of any kind which keeps the slight speculation of an accomplice open. Most experts believe that Breivek did act alone but that has not been one hundred percent confirmed. Breivek, who has been cooperative and talkative up to this point, has never admitted or implied that he had an accomplice at any time.

Breivek, who has claimed that he is not “criminally” guilty, has admitted his action in both locations, but deemed them to be necessary to protect his nation and Europe. He has also stated that what he did was meant to punish the politicians that have been too eager to embrace what he calls “multiculturism”. If he is found guilty, he can face up to twenty one years in prison. The courts are also looking at another way of holding him for longer.

A memorial for the victims of the Utoya Island will be held there this coming weekend.
