Police investigations have shown that 3.6 million Norwegian crowns (ca. US$630,000) were transferred to various foreign bank accounts held by Anders Behring Breivik between 2003 and 2006, reports Verdens Gang (VG). VG writes that the money stems from online sales of novelty/fake certificates.
The Norwegian press have previously claimed that Breivik did not make any significant money on his business projects, and has repeatedly suggested that Breivik has been lying about his business successes.
While working on his businesses, Breivik rented his own apartment. However, in 2006 he decided to move home to his mother’s apartment. It has been reported that he told his mother and half-sister that he intended to write a book. According to NRK, Breivik wrote in his diary in the autumn of 2009 that the book was completed, and that the project at this point entered a new phase; to obtain what he needed to produce the 900kg (2000 lb.) fertilizer bomb used in the 7/22 attacks.
It appears that Breivik took steps to avoid paying taxes to the Norwegian state, and according to the current VG article, Breivik’s mother has admitted to police that she assisted him in laundering some of his money, roughly 400,000 Norwegian crowns (ca. US$70,500). Breivik reportedly took out cash from various ATM cards which she then deposited into her bank account and later transferred to Breivik’s bank account.
The new information about Breivik’s finances has implications for the validity of the first psychiatric report which now appears to be based on incorrect information about Breivik’s ability to sustain himself financially.
More importantly, however, the first report now also appears to be founded on incorrect grounds with regard to the evaluation of whether Breivik has a realistic perception of reality, and whether he is speaking the truth in the compendium (the manifesto), in police questioning, and when interiewed by the court-appointed psychiatrists.

The mother laundered money for Breivik
The mother of accused terrorist Behring Anders Breivik (33) admits in the police interrogation that she helped her son to money launder 400,000 kroner.
The money comes from mass murder’s sale of fake diplomas on the internet, which was far more lucrative than what has previously been known.
From what VG is informed the police investigation shows that 3.6 million crowns were deposited in Breiviks foreign bank accounts from 2003 to 2006…..

Breivik explained to the police that he was uncertain when he was going to be able to carry out the attacks, so he checked the program for several days to see which prominent figures were attending.
VG writes that Breivik had planned to get up at 3 a.m. to begin sending out the compendium, but that he was so exhausted from the evening before that that he didn’t get up until around 8 a.m.
One of the last Behring Anders Breivik (32) did before he launched the attack 22 July, was to check the schedule for the summer camp AUF’s Utøya.

In a safe in Breivik’s room, the police also found an old passport of Breivik’s that expired in 2008. It shows that Breivik travelled extensively to many countries among them:
• Turkey in July/August 1998
• Liberia in April 2002

• Estonia in April 2004

Aftenposten writes that Breivik says that his stay in Liberia involved training and physical and psychological challenges. He has explained that he had to finance and make his way to Liberia to prove his dedication. Some of the purpose of the trip, he also says, was to be the proxy at the founding Knights Templar meeting in London for the person he was met in Liberia. Breivik has declined to say anything about whether there were other people with him in Liberia at the same time who were also under evaluation.
Posing as UNICEF employee on Africa trip
Behring Breivik should have explained that before he left he stopped by “UNICEF office” in Norway to pick up brochures. Then he made himself a “cover” which he pretended to work for the UN organization.
In April 2002, traveled Behring Breivik to Liberia through the Ivory Coast. The aim of the trip was to meet a Serb in Liberia that he should be representative of the establishment meeting of the alleged organization Knights Templar in London later that same spring.
Before this could happen he had to perform physical and mental “trials”.
In questioning the Behring Breivik said that he told the airport authorities at the landing in Ivory Coast that he was working for the UN Children’s Fund, UNICEF.
He was afraid not to come into the country, but found that the cover was “unnecessary” when he could just pay the money for security guards to enter….

The Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) writes that Breivik was initiated as a Freemason in 2007 and was conferred the third degree in 2009. According to the court psychiatrists, Breivik was already mentally ill by 2006, but none of the Freemasons that NRK spoke to reacted to any indication of mental illness in Breivik.
Breivik became a Freemason after he and his mother were invited to celebrate Christmas together with his mother’s second-cousin, Jan Behring, and his wife. According to Behring, Breivik expressed interest in becoming a Freemason and Behring eventually became his sponsor.
During the 7/22 attack on Utøya, the Grand Master of the Norwegian Freemasons, Ivar Skar, could hear the shots and observe the attacker on Utøya from a vacation cabin on a nearby island. Skar told NRK that the day after the attack, a brief Freemasons meeting was held, and Breivik was excluded from the organization. Skar also said that, at the time of his becoming a Freemason, there was nothing about Breivik that indicated that he would not be someone that would fit in well to the organization, and that he seemed like a fine young man.
He was polite, quiet and “puny”
For almost five years ago, Anders Breivik Behring admitted as first-degree member of the Masonic order, “St. John Masonic Lodge St. Olaus to the three pillars.”
23 July, he was excluded as a member.
In 2009 he was admitted to the so-called third degree. Breivik had no official duties or duties in the lodge….
When shots were fired at Utøya on 22 July to Ivar Skar hear gunshots and see the perpetrator from a cabin on an island near Utøya.
Little did he know then that the perpetrator was himself a Freemason.
“I got a phonecall where I learned that the perpetrator was a Freemason. The day after the attack, we held a short meeting. There was no other talk than he had to be excluded immediately,” says Skar.
“At this time there was nothing to indicate that he was anything other than the one that would fit in with us. He seemed like a handsome young man,” says Skar….

Breivik’ friends say he displayed no signs of mental illness and seemed normal. Aftenposten writes that the police have interviewed more than twenty of Breivik’s friends and family members and they all give a completely different picture of him than the court-appointed psychiatrists. While the psychiatrists describe Breivik as suffering from complete function loss, Brevik’s friends told police that Breivik took part in cabin trips, family dinners, parties with friends and café outings.
Three of his friends arranged a farewell party for him before he moved to the farm that he rented in the spring of 2011. One friend explained that everything seemed normal about him, and there was a good atmosphere at the party. The friend’s only concern was the fact that Breivik was using anabolic steroids. Breivik’s best friend describes him as resourceful, and very, very stubborn, but caring and very considerate towards those closest to him. According to the friend, Breivik is also a person who has a high tolerance level for other types of people.
When asked whether Breivik seemed depressed, the friend says Breivik isolated himself, but that this was not because he was depressed. The friend believes the isolation was to protect his closest friends and family, “not to drag them into this case.”
His friends saw no signs of illness
None of the more than 20 friends and family members who met the terror accused in recent years prior to 22 July-attacks mean “he was unable to take care of himself”, as the two expert psychiatrists conclude….
Police interviews show that his manifesto, that those who know him refer to as “book”, and his extreme views, was a frequently discussed topic, both in family dinners, friend requests, and in other contexts. Most knew that he had extremist views, and was obsessed by the idea that Islam conquered Europe. But nobody knew how he had intended “to promote” the book.
A 35-year-old friend says that Behring Breivik sometimes started with a long account of the Muslims had nothing to do in Europe.
“He tried to convert us (friends, editor). Get us to understand how things were….”
“He told me he wrote a book about Islamic takeover of Europe,” says best friend. Most knew that the accused spent most of their time working on this book….
Original article: Vennene hans så ingen sykdomstegn
The Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, NRK, reports that they know the contents of the police questioning of Breivik’s half-sister who lives in the United States. According to NRK, Breivik told her that he was writing a book about Muslims taking over Europe. At some point during 2011, according to the half-sister, he told his mother that he was prepared to die for this cause.
His half-sister said she had had concerns about him writing such a book, and told him he was crazy to hold such ideas. However, when questioned about the conclusion of the psychiatric report, she said she is in disagreement with the psychiatrists’ description of him. In her opinion, if he had been insane, he would not have managed to plan the attack and at the same time live such an apparently normal life.
Breivik’s half-sister also finds the psychiatrists’ and others’ suggestion of neglect during their upbringing to be incomprehensible. She remembers that they had a normal upbringing, and that there was nothing unsual about Breivik during his childhoold.
Breivik told the half sister of “manifesto”
Anders Breivik Behring was willing to die for his “project,” he told his half sister in the U.S. who was one of the few who had regularly been in contact with Breivik in the period before 22 July….
NRK know the content of this interview in which she, among other things, says that she knew Breivik wrote a book about the Muslims conquered Europe.
Breivik told her that he would dedicate his life to writing the book is about immigration. Once in 2011, he, according to the half sister, also told his mother that he was prepared to die for this case….
Although the half sister was one of the few who had contact with Breivik in time before the terrorist attacks on 22 July, she had no knowledge of the horror of terror, he was soon to perform.
The police tell her that she has never seen Breivik angry, aggressive or violent. The only such episode she can remember was when he as 6-year-old tore the legs of a spider that she was afraid….
