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….

Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, said to Verdens Gang (VG) that Breivik has now changed his mind and no longer opposes photographs of him being taken during the scheduled court proceeding on Monday, February 6th. According to Norwegian law, it is not permitted to take pictures of an accused person in court, or to and from the court building, unless the accused gives approval. According to Lippestad, Breivik has decided to agree to photography now as a sort of preparation for the upcoming trial.
Lippestad said to Dagbladet that Breivik is preparing to say a few words to the court about why he carried out the attacks. “We have no indication that he wishes to apologize for what he did. His viewpoint is unchanged, he believes it was gruesome but neccessary,” says Lippestad.
He further says that Breivik is willing to resume answering questions from Norwegian police next week if they are interested. According to Lippestad, Breivik recognizes that the police cannot guarantee acess to a (permanent) computer before a verdict has been passed. In addition, it is in his interest to explain himself to the police, especially regarding the psychiatric report, according to Lippestad.
“It is because the trial is approaching, and that when the matter will be imaged,” said Lippestad when he and co-lawyer Vibeke Hein Bæra met the press outside the prison.
The court should be set after Breivik is brought into the courtroom, and it will thus be possible to take pictures of him, according to NTB….

Lippestad said that Breivik is aware that there are more victims and their families than at the previous meeting and incarceration that one of the new experts will be in court.
“He has been informed of this and stated that,” says Lippestad. During the previous face incarceration asked Breivik if he could say something to the plaintiffs. There he was not allowed. The defenders do not know if he will request the same on Monday.
“We do not know if he plans to address the audience. We have not received any feedback on that he wants to apologize or excuse what he did. His starting point is not changed, he said it was cruel, but necessary,” says Lippestad to Dagbladet….

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.
Mass murderer has so far been examined in 170 hours, and police hope it will be restarted so that they specifically have questioned Breivik the economy, the manifesto and the alleged organization “Knights Templar”….

According to the Norwegian newspaper, Verdens Gang (VG), the court-appointed psychiatrists who diagnosed Anders Behring Breivik as psychotic placed much weight on the questioning of Breivik by police immediately after his arrest. The interview was conducted without the presence of a lawyer, a right which Breivik waived at the time.
In his manifesto Breivik wrote that he planned to take a cocktail of drugs to enable him to carry out the attacks and this may have affected his state of mind and judgemnet during the police intverview.
This said Breivik under interrogation on Utøya.
The court psychiatrists who have declared Anders Behring Breivik (32) insane were particularly concerned about what he said after his arrest on Utøya….
