Several Norwegian newspapers, as well as many parliamentary members, received a letter via email on August 13, 2012, addressed from someone claiming to represent the Knights Templar Norway, the resistance organization of which Anders Behring Breivik says he is a part.
Newspapers and politicians received the letter on the same day as the government-appointed 7/22 commmission published its findings regarding how the 7/22 attacks were handled by the police and emergency services.
According to TV2, the letter is more than two pages long and opens with the following statement: “I hereby present myself as cell two and second-in-command of the Norwegian resistance movement. I, with my soldiers, will, with all respect for our people, our culture, and our ethnicity, warn all proponents of multiculturalism of this war we now so sincerely find ourselves in.”
According to TV2, the letter further states: “The organization will continue its gruesome actions until all the Norwegian and Europoean peoples are awakened from the psychosis and the brainwashing they have afflicted on our brothers and sisters. Now it is time that we, and our commander Breivik, receive recognition in the political arena in Norway and Europe.”
NRK has published a photo of the letter head that reads “Knights Templar Norway, Second-in-Command, Cell Two.”
NRK has also published an excerpt from the letter: “That he now possibly will be ignored again and be declared unaccountable by the false and corrupt power apparatus is for us unbearable and unjust. In that case, all those who died by his sword have died in vain. We, therefore, demand our commander’s aquittal and a recognition of his claim of emergency self defence in this war.”
In an interview with NRK, Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, says: “Breivik has, from day one, claimed that there are several cells in Norway and this was also an important part of the discussion in the trial against him. If it now turns out that there are several [cells], then that is interesting.”
Police Security Service has launched an investigation after several people received a highly suspicious e-mail Monday morning.
“I can confirm that we have initiated an investigation after we learned that a person claims to be second in command of the organization Knights Templar Norway,” says Head of PST Martin Berntsen to the website of TV2.
After that TV 2 understand the security have recently been informed of an email sent to several people – including several prominent politicians – in which the sender claims he is the cell number two in Anders Behring Breivik’s alleged terrorist network….

Anders Behring Breivik maintains that there exists “a loosely organized network that identifies themselves with ‘the Crusader identity’” in his recent critique of the first psychiatric report which he sent to three Norwegian newspapers (VG, ABC Nyheter and Dagbladet), reports ABC Nyheter. According to ABC Nyheter, Breivik refers to the network as the “KT-Network” in the document.
Dagbladet apparently misunderstood one sentence in Breivik’s letter and reported the opposite of ABC Nyheter: that Breivik wrote that the Knights Templar is fictitious. After many other news organizations had re-reported the story, Dagbladet changed the article (see Google translations below) without notice to readers.
One of Breivik’s lawyers, Tord Jordet, later made it clear to Dagbladet that the sentence Dagbladet based its original story on should not be interepreted as meaning the Knights Templar does not exist. “He stands firm on that the organization exists and that he is connected to a secret network,” Jordet said to Dagbladet.
Breivik’s critique of the first psychiatric report is reportedly thirty-eight pages long. It is not known why the newspapers which received it have chosen to only publish fragmented pieces.

Breivik maintains claims of contact network
In the letter Breivik has sent to VG, Dagbladet and ABC Nyheter from prison, he maintains that there exists a “KT-Network”, that is a “loosely connected network that identifies itself with ‘the Crusader identity’.”
He mentions three persons he shall have met in London in 2002 and “the Serbian” he shall have met in Liberia the same year. In addition, he claims that in the period 2002-2011 he shall have been in contact with two persons who have “all or part of their presence in Norway.”
“My use of the word Commander is a reference that is used in the compendium where I refer to myself as a cell commander. It is used in relation to me being connected with two other individuals/cells in Norway,” claims Breivik.
The question of whether Breivik had accomplices, have been central in the police investigation….

Norwegian newspaper, Dagbladet, writes that in police questioning Anders Behring Breivik has stated that he intends to contact other Europeans who are imprisoned for carrying out right-wing attacks in order to establish a new network.
According to Dagbladet, Breivik stated to the police that Peter Mangs “is perhaps the greatest resistance fighter” in Scandinavia before 7/22. Mangs is suspected of being responsible for a year long series of sniper shooting attacks in Malmö, a crime-ridden city in the southern part of Sweden with a large Muslim community and where more than 30% of the current population was born abroad.
Dagbladet writes that Breivik refers to Peter Mangs and other right-wingers responsible for similar attacks, such as members of Braune Armee Fraktion (Brown Army Faction) in Germany, as participants of an anti-communist resistance movement throughout Europe that in total are responsible for more than fifty attacks since WWII.
In court, Breivik explained that he represents the Norwegian resistance movement and that he is a cell commander of an organization called Knights Templar. According to statements by the police and his lawyers, he refuses to name any of his contacts.
During WWII, the Norwegian resistance movement operated as multiple organizations in order to make detection and infiltration by the enemy more difficult, and both violent and non-violent methods were employed.

- Will contact
- I am working on contacting Peter [Mangs] and Beate [Zschäpe] and offer them moral support before their trials. I will be applauding them as national heroes of Sweden and Germany respectively and offer them access to my nationalistic and revolutionary support network.
Dagbladet is informed that Breivik has explained [in questioning] that he will start a new network of imprisoned, anti-Islamist nationalists.
This shall be a pan-European prison network. Breivik has explained to police that he wishes that the network eventually will include Russian and Danish right-wing extremists, that he claims he has contact with, and right wing extremist MC-groups….

Norwegian police have still not found any evidence of the secret organization, Knights Templar, that Anders Behring Breivik says he represents, police lawyer Pål Fredrik Hjort Kraby has told NRK.
In an interview with NRK, Kraby said: “There is according to intelligence information from British authorities and from authorities in other countries no indication that there shall have been such an organization.”
Kraby also told NRK: “On the background of that we have not found any information that supports what he [Breivik] says about this organization and the other cells, it is our theory that he wishes to create a picture of fear in society. He wants us to belive this as part of the threat picture that he wishes to convey. But, as said, we have not found any evidence of this organization.”
Various publicly known groups identify themselves as Knights Templar or use medieval crusader symbolism. Norwegian media frequently brings attention to right-wing blogger and English Defence League (EDL) co-founder, Paul Ray, who represents one such group. Ray has condemned the 7/22 attacks and has stated that he has never met Breivik.
Breivik told police that he attended the founding meeting of a secret organization called Knights Templar in London in 2002, shortly after his trip to Liberia. The Police Security Service (PST) has stated that Breivik prepared the 7/22 attacks for years and was extremely security conscious. In police questioning, Breivik explained that he changed hard drives regularly, and that what was on his computers when he was arrested is what he wanted the police to find.
Police believe that the terrorist accused Anders Behring Breivik has invented the organization Knights Templar and that there are other terrorist cells in order to create fear in society even after 22 July.
Anders Behring Breivik has from the first interrogation explained to police that there are two other cells are ready to conduct another terrorist attack.
He has in interviews and in his manifesto written that he is a member of the organization “Knights Templar,” and that this was formed during a secret meeting in 2002. Police have not found traces that either other cells or that the organization exists.
“It is, according to intelligence information from the British authorities and the authorities of another country no indication that there must have been such an organization,” said prosecutor Paul Fredrik Hjort Kraby told NRK….

The Oslo District Court (Tingrett) announced on Friday that the press should not be allowed to film Anders Behring Breivik’s testimony in court, reports Aftenposten.
Aftenposten writes that the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) will record the entire trial and broadcast it live from the Oslo District Court to several regional district courts. The court, however, has decided that only the opening and closing remarks of the prosecutors and defence lawyers, as well as the reading of the verdict by the judge, shall be broadcast to the general public.
Verdens Gang (VG) writes that the Oslo District Court has postponed making a decision on whether testimonies of expert witnesses or police investigators should be allowed to be broadcast to the public.
“A testimony in front of open camera could contribute to shift focus from the actions he is accused of towards his ideological and political message,” Judge Wenche Elizabeth Arntzen wrote in the decision, reports NRK. The statement is surprising as citizens have the right to defend themselves in court against charges brought against them by the state by explaining the reasons for their actions.
Breivik has previously told the court that he is a cell commander of an organization called the Knights Templar, and that he represents the Norwegian resistance movement. In police questioning, Breivik has explained that he belives the attacks were gruesome but necessary, and that the widespread censorship in Norwegian society of ideas critical of multiculturalism makes armed struggle necessary.
Leader of the Norwegian Editors Association (Norsk Redaktørforening), Nils Øy, said in an interview with Agderposten that the court announces its own failure when it uses as its main argument that it does not wish Breivik to have an opportunity to speak about his ideology. It is the task of the judges to make sure that Breivik stays on topic in court, and to interrupt him if he attempts anything else, Øy explained to the newspaper. “Here we stand ahead of the trial of the possibly worst crimnal act in historic times in Norway,” he says.
In their application for broadcasting from the trial, the Norwegian Editors Association and the Norwegian Press Association emphasized that the broadcasting of the court would provide an important opportunity for the public to check the conduct of the court. However, as the recent publication of the indictment and reporting from the last court proceeding show, the Norwegian press frequently censors or omits factual details. Despite a large number of journalists being present at the February court hearing, only two publications appear to have published the brief statement Breivik made in its entirety. Because of incidences such as these, many informed readers in Norway have a deep distrust of the media, and are not confident that media reporting from the trial will be accurate. It is against this background that the importance placed by the Norwegian Editors Association and the Norwegian Press Association on a live broadcast must be understood. A live broadcast would help reduce speculation by the general public as to whether the trial was fair.
Usually regular citizens have the opportunity to attend trials so that they can see for themselves whether the judge follows the law. Apparently, however, this will not be the case in the trial against Breivik. A large number of seats in the courtroom have been reserved for news organisations, whose lack of thoroughness in reporting is ironically reflected by the fact that the list of news organizations that have requested accreditation has not been published anywhere else than on this blog. In addition, the Oslo District Court has announced that it will give preferential treatment to victims of the attacks and their relatives when deciding who shall be given access to the limited number of seats available to the public in the court room. According to newspaper reports, it seems that, in reality, this policy will make it impossible for members of the general public to follow the trial.
Thus it appears that the court places little emphasis on the importance of maintaining the tradition common in democracies in which regular citizens can follow trials in order to control whether the judges in question follow the law, and to check if the press accurately reports what is being said during the trial.
Breivik’s appearance in court is expected to be important for the court in deciding whether Breivik is legally accountable or not. Denying the broadcast of Breivik’s testimony will, therefore, make it very difficult for the general public to evalute whether the judgement of the court in this matter seemed reasonable, and to what extent the Oslo District Court had upheld justice in this case.
The decision to allow the broadcast of several participants in a trial, but not the person accused, also indicates that the court is not concerned about being perceived as partial. This is noteworthy, as both the Justice Department and Supreme Court were victims of the bomb attack in Oslo, and Breivik has stated in court that he does not recognize the Oslo District Court as legitimate because he believes the court receives its authority from the Labor Party.
But the press will film portions of the trial, including the reading of the indictment.
The Oslo District Court said in a statement Friday afternoon.
The court on application from the Association of Norwegian Editors and the Norwegian Press Association issued the press permission to broadcast the opening of main proceedings in which the indictment read out, and introductions from the prosecutor and defense counsel in the case.
In addition, the press allowed to film during the closing procedures in the July 22-trial.
Under the procedures summarizes the prosecutor and defense counsel that has emerged during the presentation of evidence and draw conclusions about guilt, questions about mental incapacity and a penalty. Also verdict will be open for filming.
The media will not broadcast the parts of the trial in which Behring Anders Breivik explains itself. The same applies when the victim from Utøya and government quarter explanatory.
This is in line with what the practice has been in previous trials….

Oslo City Court does not allow media to film Behring Anders Breivik’s testimony in the trial against him starting in April.
The district court decided on Friday the scope of what can be transferred directly from the terror case. Permission is granted to the opening of the trial and the parties’ opening speeches broadcast. Also the final procedures will be transferred.
Neither Breivik’s own testimony or the victim’s testimony, however, can be transferred directly. When the Oslo District Court has received evidence of the prosecution task, it will be decided whether the explanation from the professionals, like police investigators, or others may be transferred….

Cannot film Breivik in court
The court feared in part that openly would affect Breivik to talk more about politics than about the acts he has committed….
Because of very great public interest, has a total Norwegian press corps asked Oslo District Court if you send the greater part of the July 22 trial, than is normal in major criminal cases.
Also defending Geir Lippestad have requested the most transparency on behalf of his client.
The terrorist suspect 33-year-old has even asked for minimal restrictions on filming during the trial because he wants to reach out to as many people as possible.
In her statement writes Judge Wenche Elisabeth Arntzen, among other things:
“The court believes there is a real danger that the defendant’s testimony would be affected if the broadcast, directly or edited broadcasts. One explanation for the open camera will be able to contribute to turning the focus away from the actions he is accused of, and against his ideological and political message….”
General secretary, Nils E. Øy, in the Norwegian Editors’ Association is disappointed with the decision of the court, and alerts rematch. Friday it was investigated whether the decision from the Oslo District Court could be appealed to the Court of Appeal.
It was unclear whether there was such a possibility, but likely to appeal court to make a decision on this issue within a few days, said.

Rematch on televised Breivik
The judges in the case of terrorism fears that Anders Breivik Behring will testify differently in court if what he says will be broadcast in the media….
Chairman Nils Øy in the Norwegian Editors’ Association is disappointed with the decision of the court. The main argument of the judges for denying the transfer is that they will not give Breivik a soapbox for his ideology, experience Øy as an admission of failure from the judges. He says it is their job to keep Breivik to issue and cancel his explanation if he tries to talk about something else.
“Here we are facing the trials for perhaps the worst crime in historical time in Norway, said Øy to emphasize the importance of the case….”

The police questioning of Anders Behring Brevik continues in parallel with the psychiatric observations of him at Ila Prison, reports Dagbladet. According to Dagbladet, Breivik met with police for more than ten hours of questioning on Thursday last week.
Dagbladet writes that trips abroad, money transfers, and the organization, Knights Templar, were topics in the police questioning this week. According to Dagbladet, Breivik has explained to the police that other people have been invovled, but that he will not reveal who they are.
“He does not want to explain himself about others. He does not want to say anything about who he has met and he does not want to confirm what countries he has been to before the police present documentation. He says he does not want to contribute with information that can lead to other people being arrested,” one of Breivik’s lawyers, Tord Jordet, said to Dagbladet.
For ten hours the police questioned Anders Behring Breivik about large sums of money paid out to unknown persons abroad.
There is talk of several large money transfers, said defender Tord Jordet Dagbladet.
Police have previously denied that Breivik has held assistants. Yet they are very concerned about who it is who has got the big money transfers.
“One of the transactions was more than 40 000 dollars. Some of the transfers have been made between overseas accounts he has disposed of, to make it difficult to track where the money came from, and to give him access to money without being subject to tax. Other transfers are made directly to other people,” said Jordet….

During the most recent police questioning of Anders Behring Breivik, the police handed Breivik a piece of paper and asked if he could make a list of alternative targets that he considered before the 7/22 attacks, one of Breivik’s lawyers, Odd Ivar Grøn, told Verdens Gang (VG) in an interview.
VG writes that Breivik mentioned a total of about thirty possible targets that he planned to attack with bombs or weapons; this included a list of twelve Norwegians he considers to be traitors.
According to the paper, the organization, Knights Templar, which Breivik says he represents, has as its targets both buildings and people it considers traitors. The lists of people considered traitors are reportedly divided in three categories: A, B, and C.
VG has, after having contacted everyone that Breivik listed as category A traitors, published these names:
- Jonas Gahr Støre (Foreign Minister, Labor)
- Gro Harlem Brundtland (former Prime Minster, Labor)
- Trond Giske (Minister of Business, Labor)
- Anniken Huitfeldt (Minister of Culture, Labor)
- Raymond Johansen (Party Secretary, Labor)
- Kåre Willoch (former Prime Minster, Conservative)
- Kjell Magne Bondevik (former Prime Minister, Christian People’s Party)
- Knut Wollebæk (former Foreign Minister, Christian People’s Party)
- Trine Skei Grande (current leader of Leftist Party)
- Kari Helene Partapuoli (leader of the Anti-racist Center)
- Torry Pedersen (Chief Editor, VG)
- Hilde Haugsgjerd (Chief Editor, Aftenposten)
- Several organisations: Amnesty International, the Central Church Council (Mellomkirkelig råd) and fifteen unnamed organizations/businesses referred to as the asylum lobby.
According to VG, Breivik has stated that it would be preferrable to focus on one political party due to limited resources. Former Prime Minister, Kjell Magne Bondevik, and former Foreign Minister, Knut Wollebæk, from the Christian People’s Party (KrF) are, according to VG, on the list of category A traitors because that government supported the NATO invasion of Serbia.
Google translation of right hand column [edited for clarity]:
Such is Breivik’s death list:
Breivik’s alleged organization, Knights Templar, has according to the terrorist not only buildings objectives, but also people they regard as traitors and betrayers. These death lists are divided into categories, named A, B, and C, and are, according to Breivik’s logic legitimate targets.
Here’s the A-list:
Jonas Gahr Støre, or “Judas Gal [Crazy] Støre” as Brevik says he is called in conservative circles. (A Google search shows that several online debaters on Norwegian discussion forums uses this description, note by the editor.)
Gro Harlem Brundtland. Is according to Breivik not a traitor now, but has a historical significance that means that she will always be on such a list.
Three other Labor politicians are mentioned specifically: Minister of business Trond Giske and Culture minister Anniken Huitfeldt, both of which have been AUF leaders and party secretary Raymond Johansen.
Kare Willoch. Breivik has reservations about having the former Conservative prime minister on the list because it is desirable to concentrate on one party because of limited resources.
Kjell Magne Bondevik (KrF). Because he during his time as prime minister supported the invasion of Serbia. Breivik has said that the establishment of the Knights Templar were initiated because NATO “prevented” that Muslims were deported from the country [Serbia].
Knut Wollebæk (KrF). Bondevik’s Foreign Minister on the list for the same reason.
Current Liberal leader Trine Skei Grande is also included.
The same is Kari Helene Partapuoli, head of the Anti-Racist Center.
VG chief editor Torry Pedersen, Aftenposten-chief [editor] Hilde Haugsgjerd and NRK [Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation] as an organization is mentioned. Breivik accuses Norwegian media of being spokesmen for the cultural marxists.
In addition, he mentions several non-governmental organizations as category A-traitors: Amnesty International, Central Council on Ecumenical [Mellomkirkelig råd] and the “asylum lobby.” The latter is Breivik’s own bag-designation of 15 unnamed organizations that want to “colonize Norway with Muslims.”
Kari Helene Partapuoli is on the list. She says she’s used to that right-wing uses terms such as traitor and betrayor about her. “I have received emails from people who have asked whether my family has a background from NS [Nasjonal Samling, a fascist party in Norway during WW2]. Thus, it is not surprising that even this man [Breivik] has said this.”
PS! VG has been in contact with, and informed everyone mentioned in Breivik’s list of “category A-traitors….”

NRK reports that, according to police documents which NRK has seen, the Norwegian police are investigating possible contact between Anders Behring Breivik and Milorad Ulemek, a former commander of the Serbian secret police special unit, the Red Berets. Ulemek was a commander in the Serbian forces during the Kosovan War, fighting against Muslims and NATO forces in the Balkans. At the end of the war, special forces from the Norwegian military were the first NATO ground forces entering Kosovo, and among the first to enter Pristina.
Breivik has told police that the organization that he represents, the Knights Templar, was created in 2002 as a result of the NATO bombing of Christians in Serbia, and that the reason he travelled to Liberia in 2002 was to meet a Serbian war hero. Breivik has been unwilling to say whom he met in Liberia, but according to NRK the police believe this person may have been Milorad Ulemek. Dagbladet writes that on September 27, 2011, the Oslo Police sent a request for information about Ulemek in Serbia.
NRK also writes that another European right-wing activist, Nick Greger, has connections to Liberia. Nick Greger is the leader of an organization called Order 777 and, according to NRK, has ties to the organization Breivik says he represents, the Knights Templar. NRK says that Greger published a video about a year ago in which he praises Milorad Ulemek, and that in the video there is a picture of a kneeling Templar Knight, the same symbol used in Breivik’s manifest (“2083: A European Declaration of Independence”). Nick Greger is a frequent poster of videos online, some of which can be viewed on his YouTube channel.
The Belfast Telegraph reported in July 2011 that Nick Greger attended a gathering in Malta in February of that year together with Johnny Adair, a former leader of “C Company”, 2nd Battalion Shankill Road, West Belfast Brigade of the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF), and Paul Ray, one of the original founders of the English Defence League (EDL). A YouTube video entitled “The Gathering” uploaded Feb 28, 2011, shows Paul Ray, Nick Greger and Johnny Adair together visiting churches around Malta.
Paul Ray has condemned the 7/22 attacks, but according to The Belfast Telegraph, he confirmed to the Associated Press the existence of a loosely organized group inspired by the Knights Templar. According to The Belfast Telegraph, Ray refused to name any members so as not to indicate the size of the organization, but he stated the following: “It’s an idea. It’s not like it’s a massive organization. It’s a belief.”
In his compendium (“2083: A European Declaration of Independence”), Breivik speaks positively about Milorad Ulemek. According to Dagbladet, Breivik has explained to the Norwegian police that, in many ways, much of the symbolism of the Knights Templar organization is from Serbia.
Persons charged with terrorist Anders Breivik Behring has probably been inspired by several Christian terrorists and killers. Among these was a Serbian commander, he may have met in Liberia in 2002.
The police now use resources to find out more about the convicted murderer commander, Milorad Ulemek, and if he can be linked to Breivik.
It shows the forks research material NRK know the content in.
The reason is that Breivik in 2002 traveled to Liberia. There, he claims that he met a Serbian war hero he was recruiting for his fight against the Muslims in Europe. This may have been Milorad Ulemek, who on the Serbian side was in the war against Muslims in the Balkans…..

Google translation [edited for clarity]:
Breivik may have met the convicted murderer mafia leader Milorad Ulemek on diamond hunting in Africa.
Breivik claimed during interrogation that he met a “Serb war hero who has killed many Muslims in battle” when he was in Liberia in 2002. He tried to make money on blood diamonds in the war-torn but mineral-rich country on Africa’s west coast. In questioning Breivik refused to testify in detail about his alleged contact. But has said the following:
“Now apparently all are captured, of those war criminals, but … they … for nationalists, they are heroes, right.”
When asked by police Breivik has not wanted to say if he had been in Serbia, but the organization Knights Templar, which he persistently claims to be a part of, was allegedly founded in 2002 because of NATO bombing of Serbia.
“NATO made it impossible for Serbia to deport Muslims. They therefore began to ‘kill one another,’” Breivik has said in questioning….

Transcript of Anders Behring Breivik’s statement in Oslo District Court (Tingrett), February 6, 2012:
“The attacks against the governmental buildings and against the Labor Party were preventative attacks against traitors that commit, or are planning to commit, cultural destruction, hereof the cultural destruction of the Norwegian ethnic group and deconstruction of Norwegian culture. Systematic deconstruction of the Norwegian ethnic group is the same as ethnic cleansing.
“The traitors in the Labor Party use the asylum system, the family reunification system, permission to stay on humanitarian grounds, and the refugee quota as tools for the Islamic colonization of Norway. As a result of this policy, Norway’s indigenous people, ethnic Norwegians, will become a minority in Oslo in ten years. This is not a claim, it is a fact.
“I am a militant nationalist, a cell commander in Knights Templar, Norway and Europe. I represent the Norwegian resistance movement and the indigenous people of Norway, and my forefathers have lived in this country for 12,000 years. We in the Norwegian resistance movement are not going to sit still and watch that we are made a minority in our own capital. We are not going to sit and watch that we are made a minority in our own country. We do not accept it; it is unacceptable.
“We shall fight. We shall fight against the traitors in the Labor Party and against political activists that work for other organizations that support multiculturalism and Islamification. The attacks on 7/22 were preventative attacks for the defense of Norway’s indigenous people, ethnic Norwegians.
“I, as a militant nationalist, a cell commander for Knights Templar, and a representative for the Norwegian resistance movement, cannot admit legal guilt for 7/22, because I acted in emergency defense on behalf of my people, my culture, my religion, my city and my country.
“I, therefore, demand that you release me immediately and hereby wish to suggest that the Norwegian Armed Forces nominate me for the Warcross with Threee Swords. Universal human rights and international law allows for indigenous peoples who are threathened by ethnic and cultural deconstruction, hereof ethnic cleansing and cultural genocide, to have the right to defend themselves militarily.”

The courtroom buzzed with the sound of cameras as Anders Behring Breivik entered the Oslo District Court (Tingrett) today for the last incarceration hearing before the trial begins on April 16. As he entered the courtroom, Breivik performed the Knights Templar clenched fist salute described in his compendium, “2083: A European Declaration of Independence.”
As in the previous court proceeding, Breivik objected to the neutrality of the court and Judge Wenche Fliflet Gjelsten. “You have received your mandate from organizations that support multiculturalism, and for this reason I have objections regarding your neutrality,” Breivik said according to VG.
During the proceeding, Breivik asked permission from the judge to say a few words about why he admits to committing the 7/22 attacks, but does not admit legal guilt for them.
“The attack against the governmental offices was directed against traitors that commit cultural destruction, the deconstruction of the Norwegian ethnic group. It is the same as ethnic cleansing,” Breivik said according to NRK.
“I am a militant nationalist. I represent native Norwegians. I am a commander of Knights Templar Norway. We in the Norwegian resistance movement are not going to sit still and watch us become a minority in our own capitol and country. We shall fight against the traitors in the Labor party,” said Breivik.
The judge, then, tried to interrupt Breivik, who said: “Now I am about to come to the conclusion. I cannot acknowledge legal guilt. I acted in emergency defense of my people, culture and country.” He then requested that he be released immediately.
According to Norwegian media, many of the plaintiffs present in the courtroom laughed out loud several times when Breivik was addressing the court.
Demanded to be released immediately

Anders Behring Breivik started the hearing to protest the judge, because he thought she is disqualified.
Breivik said that the attacks were meant to those engaged in ethnic cleansing.
He made it clear that he is familiar with the charges.
“I recognize the actions, but I do not acknowledge guilt. In this connection I wish to explain to me. So if I could get a minute, I had been greatly praise it? Is it okay?” said Brevik.
The judge agreed that he could have one minute to explain himself.
“The attacks against the government quarter was directed against traitors who commit cultural destruction, deconstruction of the Norwegian ethnic group. It is the same as Norwegian ethnic cleansing,” said Breivik, and it sounded ridiculous in the auditorium.
“I am a militant militarist, a commander of the Knights Templar Norway. We in the Norwegian resistance movement is not going to sit and look at deconstruction. We shall fight against the traitors of the Labour Party,” said Breivik.
The judge tried to interrupt him.
“Now I come to the conclusion,” stressed Breivik.
“I can not admit guilt. I acted in self-defense for my people, culture and my country,” said Breivik and petitioned therefore released immediately.
“I do not accept detention and demand to be released immediately, he said to laughter from the audience….”

TV2 writes that a large number of police investigators arrived yesterday at Breivik’s lawyer’s office, Lippestad Law Offices, for a meeting that lasted one-and-a-half hours. The reason for the meeting was that the police are eager to continue questioning Anders Behring Breivik. The questioning came to an end a couple of weeks ago when the police failed to provide in writing an agreement that Breivik would have access to a computer during his imprisonment, a stipulation that had been orally agreed upon earlier.
According to TV2, it will be the prison or health authorities that will have the final say in the matter, but TV2 reports that both the police and Breivik’s lawyers were of the opinion after yesterday’s meeting that it is likely that Breivik will, indeed, be granted access to a computer given the restricted conditions under which he will likely be kept, whether in prison or in a psychiatric hospital.
Both the police and the defense believes that Anders Behring Breivik in the future will have access to a computer – regardless of whether he is sentenced to treatment or punishment….

VG writes that the police are eager to continue the questioning so that they can get more informaiton about Breivik’s economy, his compendium (manifest), and the organization, Knights Templar, that Breivik says he represents.
Mass murderer has so far not been confronted with the information in the interview – in part because he refuses to examine further before he gets fulfilled its requirement to access the computer after the verdict has dropped the case this summer.
“The status is that there will be no more questioning so far, but we have a good dialogue with the defenders and both parties want to conduct more interrogations,” saying the police prosecutor.
