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…..

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.

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….”

Police questioning of Anders Behring Breivik resumed on Wednesday. The police have not provided a new letter guaranteeing Breivik access to a computer for the duration of his imprisonment, but Breivik has agreed to continue answering questions from the police because he expects that they will follow up on what he perceives an an oral agreement, said Odd Ivar Grøn, one of Breivik’s lawyers, to Aftenposten. He also believes it is important that he explains himself, according to Grøn.
Aftenposten reports that, when confronted with details of the contents of the reported phone threat towards Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and other senior Labor Party politicians in March 2011 in which a male caller mentioned a manifest and shooting AUF members, Breivik denied being the caller. He has previously acknowledged calling the governmental offices at some point, but has said he does not recall the details of this call, and had thus not clarified for the police whether he might have been the March caller.
Grøn told Aftenposten that, after having been given more details of the contents of the reported phone threat, Breivik denied that he made this specific call. Grøn said that Breivik seemed very certain about this. He also said that Breivik does not recall what he said when he did call the governmental offices, but that there is no connection between Breivik’s call and the reported phone threat in March.
Breivik’s main lawyer, Geir Lippestad, previously criticized the police for not investigating the reported phone threat thoroughly as finding out who the caller was could help establish whether someone other than Breivik knew about the plans. Up until now, governmental staff have been searching though the thousands of voice recordings from the time period in question, but the police have now taken possession of the hard drive that contains the voice recordings.

Terror-accused denies threat call
Anders Breivik Behring has new police interrogation said that it was not he who phoned in threat call to ministry service in March.
An employee at the switchboard has explained that she received a call, probably in March, where a man made threats and said a manifesto and shooting against AUF-ers. Breivik has previously explained that he called government offices in advance of the attack, but he has said he does not remember what he had said.
In a new interview on Wednesday, Breivik said that he is not behind this particular conversation that should have taken place four months before the terrorist attack.
“He have been given more clarity as to the contents of the particular call and he says it was not he who called this. He seems very sure of this,” says attorney Odd Ivar Grøn to NTB.
“He does not remember what he said when he called, but it should not be any connection between his call and the particular threat conversation,” he said….

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…..

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….

In the years before the 7/22 attacks, Anders Behring Breivik lived with his mother in Oslo, but in May 2011 he moved to a farm in Rena commune in Hedmark.
– Evidence related to bomb making –
Aftenposten writes that at Åsta farm, which Breivik rented in the months leading up the the attacks, the police found six pages with printing on both sides which appears to be complete instructions for producing a bomb. In addition, the police found hand-written notes with mathematical calculations and measures written down on Post-it Notes.
In police questioning, Breivik has explained that he visited around twenty-five pharmacies about five times each purchasing between two to three kilograms (four to six pounds) of aspirin for use in the production of the bomb, costing between 15,000 to 20,000 Norwegian crowns (US$2,500-3,500).
The police believe Breivik manufactured the bomb, estimated to be 950 kilograms (2090 pounds) in size, at the farm and then drove it to Oslo in the Volkswagen Crafter which he had rented.

Verdens Gang (VG) has published photos showing Breivik’s room at his mother’s apartment in Oslo where he lived until May 2011, and where he planned and prepared for the 7/22 attacks. The photos are taken by the police just hours after the attacks. The military uniform that Breivik requested to wear during the first court proceedings can be seen hanging in the closet.

VG writes that, when the police entered Breivik’s room at his mother’s apartment in Oslo, the computer was turned on. Breivik explained to the police that he changed hard drives monthly and that “what is on the PC is what I want you to find”.
The email program, MS Outlook, which Breivik explained he used to send his compendium (“2083: A European Declaration of Independence”) to about a thousand people, was still open on the computer, as was a PDF document of the program schedule for the Labor Youth Organization (AUF) camp at Utøya. 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.
When police were to secure evidence in the apartment for Breivik’s mother Skøyen 23 July was the computer in his bedroom on. Mass murderer had made no attempt to prevent the police gained access to the information.

– Evidence relating to Liberia trip in 2002 –
Dagbladet writes that the police found a raw diamond worth about 4,000 Norwegian crowns (US$700) at Breivik’s home which he said he purchased from a store in Oslo. Breivik has explained to the police that he purchased a number of inexpensive diamonds in order to back up his cover story of travelling to Liberia in 2002 to purchase diamonds. According to him, the real purpose of the trip was to meet a Serbian war hero. The police also found about 20,000 Norwegian crowns (US$3,500) in cash, an amount Breivik said he usually had at hand in case something went wrong.
In his bedroom, they found a safe with 68 shotgun cartridges.

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….

Breivik agreed to be questioned without a lawyer and the police kept Breivik at Utøya until late in the night for questioning. Three members from the Section for Special Operations in the Organized Crime Unit (Seksjon for organisert kriminalitet) of the Oslo police conducted the questioning. Just before 2 a.m., Breivik was evaluated by a doctor. According to VG’s sources, the doctor was of the opinion that Breivik seemed shaken, his eyes looked tired, and his pupils were dilated. The doctor thought his condition could be caused by psychological stress or by the use of Efedrin.
This is the police’s own images of Behring Anders Breivik (32) after his arrest on Utøya.
According to information VG has received access to ga Breivik clear message that he did not want to be photographed after the shooting massacre. The police took still pictures in order to secure evidence of how he was dressed and equipped under terrorist attack.

– Guns and equipment –
Dagbladet writes that when Breivik was arrested, he carried a Glock 17 pistol and a Ruger Mini 14 Rifle. Runic inscriptions were carved on the gun. Mjollnir (Mjølner), the Old Norse name for Thor’s Hammer, was carved on the Glock; and on the rifle, Gungnir, the Old Norse name of the spear of Odin. According to Norse mythlogy, the spear (Gungnir) hits and penetrates everything at which it is aimed and, like Thor’s hammer, always returns to the thrower’s hand.
In the small van Breivik drove to Utøya, the police found a note apparently written by Breivik himself saying “Costume party 2010/2011 – police officer”. The police also found a shotgun and a bag of metal tire-puncturing devices that could have been used to incapacitate persuing vehicles.
Handwritten note and a loaded shotgun was in the getaway car at Utøya.
In Fiat Dubloen as Anders Breivik Behring drove to the berth where the M / S Thorbjorn was to transport him to Utøya, the police made more seizures after the mass killing her husband was arrested.
Police seized the Spanish rider, which could be used to delay the police cars. Spanish riders can be thrown out on the road, after which they puncture the tires of cars that are running….
According to mythology, is this spear through it all and hit what he aims at. Like Thor’s hammer must return to the shooter’s hand….

– Breivik reconnoitering shortly before attacks –
The Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) has published surveillance camera photos of Breivik reconnoitering in Oslo around lunchtime on 7/22, a couple of hours before he carried out the attacks. The photos show Breivik walking past the governmental offices in downtown Oslo carrying documents and holding an umbrella. According to NRK, Breivik has explained in police questioning that he surveyed the area about eight times in the three years leading up to the attacks, trying to establish structural weaknesses in the buildings. Breivik also explained to police that he felt relatively sure that his reconnaissance missions would not draw attention since Norwegian police considered it unlikely that anyone other than Islamists would attack targets in Norway.
It shows still images taken from surveillance videos in the middle of Oslo city center.
According to NRK understand, the pictures taken at lunchtime Friday, a few hours before the bomb explosion in its ministries.
With an umbrella and a black briefcase under his left arm goes Breivik seemingly undisturbed through the area where he is soon to blow up a bomb.

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….

Breivik, who has refused to speak with the police since January 11, decided Friday to go along with new interviews before the trial.
He has refused to cooperate because he wanted guarantees for computer use in prison.
“He wants to leave the interview because he believes it has reached so many errors in the expert [psychiatric] report,” said Lippestad.

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….
Original article: Breivik får trolig beholde pc-en på cellen
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”….

NRK reports that the police have decided that they will go through all the recorded conversations to the governmental offices around March 2011, the time that one of the receptionists says that a threatening phone call was received. Police lawyer, Pål-Fredrik Hjort Kraby, said to NRK that governmental workers have searched through about half a year of material and that the police will now gain acess to a hard-drive that contains one full year of recordings.
Hjort Kraby told Verdens Gang (VG) that the amount of material is enormous, and that the reported conversation has not been found so far, and that may mean either that the call did not took place or that it simply hasn’t been found yet. According to Hjort Kraby, it is important to establish whether it was the accused (Behring Breivik) that called, or if someone else knew about the plans.
Police will go through audio logs
“We are pleased that the police should review the log,” says Breivik defender Geir Lippestad to NRK.
Lippestad has previously complained about the police investigation of the telephone call to the ministries, where a man threatened both the prime minister, Gro Harlem Brundtland and the AUF.
“I do not understand why they have not prioritized this,” said Lippestad to NRK Friday….

Stavangeravisen writes that the March telephone threats were made to the Justice Department.
Previous Justice Minister, Knut Storberget (Labor), stepped down in November 2011, a week after he and several other Labor Party leaders received threats posted on a Russian website from a group called The Organization for a Free Norway (Organisasjonen Fritt Norge). Storberget had been a controversial Justice Minister due to his attempts to introduce law changes that would make blasphemy illegal and proposing that the hijab should be allowed in the Norwegian police force.
The Justice Department was located on the seventh floor of the same building as the Prime Minster’s office and was amongst the most severely destroyed offices in the building. Four Justice Department staff members were killed in the 7/22 attacks, three were at work inside the building and one was attending the Labor Youth Organization (AUF) camp at Utøya.
Now do not talk anymore Breivik
Behring Breivik refuses to talk to police before they can guarantee him computer access for the whole sentence after trial. It will not the police do….
The police would, among other things, Breivik asked if it was he who called the Justice Department in March last year and threatened to kill AUF-ers….

In March 2011, a man called the governmental offices talking about a manifest and shooting of Labor Youth Organization (AUF) members. Now Anders Behring Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, says to Verdens Gang (VG) that Breivik acknowledges that he placed a phone call to a governmental department during the planning phase of the attacks, but that he has difficulties remembering the details of this conversation.
Lippestad says that, in his view, it is important to obtain information about the March phone call, and that he is surprised that the police do not appear to have investigated it. He further says that it is important to bring forth information about whoever was apparently knowledgable about a manifest, the Labor Youth Organization (AUF) and governmental representatives. According to Lippestad, the threatening phone call is important if it was made by the accused (Breivik), and at least equally as important if it was not.
In March, a man phoned the switchboard in the government building and talked about a manifesto and to shoot AUF-ers. Anders Behring Breivik’s defense will know who called….
“In our opinion, it is important to get information about someone who has known the plans manifesto, Labour Youth and the named individuals in the government. It is important if it is accused, and at least as important if it is not,” says Lippestad.
He is critical of how the case has been treated by the police.
“I am surprised that the police have not investigated this, but given the ministry responsible for investigating itself. It is very unusual in such a serious matter,” said Lippestad….

An employee at the govermental offices reported the threatening phone conversation back in March. The police have apparently not searched through the voice recordings at the governmental offices, but have requested that governmental employees search though the thousands of recorded conversations from the time period in question. They have, so far, not been able to find the conversation.
Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, said to NRK that either it is the accused (Breivik) who placed the call, or it was someone familiar with the attack plans. Lippestad also said that since the police have used much time looking into whether other people were involved in the 7/22 attacks, they should, therefore, also be following up on this material themselves.
The police have not yet questioned Breivik about the phone conversation. Breivik is no longer answering any questions from the police since they have not formalized and provided, in writing, certain stipulations that had been previously agreed upon, namely that Breivik would be guaranteed access to a personal computer with word processing software and a version of Wikipedia for the duration of his imprisonment.
“Whether it is the accused who have called into this conversation, or is there someone who has known of the plans. Police have spent much time trying to find out if more people have been involved, and therefore they should have control over this material. It is unfortunate that they do not,” says Lippestad….
“Why are the police so little interested in these audit logs?”
“I do not know, and do not understand. They gain the power of this telephone conversation, and it must be important to know if there really was a person number two. I do not understand why they have not prioritized this,” answer Breivik defender.
Lippestad says that he has asked police to investigate, or “requested investigative steps” as he calls it. He sees it as central to the case if there have been some who have known Anders Breivik Behring plans….

Aftenposten reports that yesterday’s scheduled questioning by police was terminated earlier than planned as Anders Behring Breivik refused to continue answering questions until the police put in writing an agreement that has been made that he is guaranteed acess to a PC with specific software for his entire imprisonment.
When he was arrested on Utøya on 7/22/11, Breivik demanded a computer with a downloaded version of the free, internet-based encyclopedia, Wikipedia. One of Breivik’s lawyers, Tord Jordet, says to Aftenposten that Breivik will not answer any further questions of the police until the agreement is presented in writing. Jordet says, however, that since these issues have already been agreed upon, and the police have said a written confirmation will be provided, it is a matter for the police to get a written statement in place.

“He was told that this should exist in writing before the hearing yesterday and when it did not exist, it was ended,” said Jordet.

Editors of the major Norwegian news organisations have been called in for a meeting with the Oslo police to discuss the many leaks from the investigation of the 7/22 attacks, reports Journalisten.no.
The meeting, held by the Oslo police, comes a few days after Aftenposten revealed what happened on board the Utøya ferry where, according to witness accounts, leader of the Labor Youth Organisation (AUF), Eskil Pedersen, and a small group of Labor Youth members, including Johannes Dalen Giske, the nephew of the Minister of Business, Trond Giske, took the Utøya ferry and sailed far away from the island rather than to help their comrades escape from the island.
The police claim that several witnesses have been increasingly reluctant to be interviewed due to the many leaks. Some have even expressed doubts regarding whether they will sign and approve existing interviews according to Roar Hanssen, Communication Adviser of the Oslo Police.
News editors are not very positive about the meeting. News director, Jan Ove Årsæther, from TV2 says to Journalisten that they usually do not accept invitations to such meetings, but will do so this time and listen to what the police have to say. Editor-in-chief, John Arne Markussen, of the newspaper Dagbladet says that, in his view, it is the police who are responsible for the leaks, but that Dagbladet will attempt to have someone attending the meeting.
The police will meet the editors Friday

Aftenposten reports that Anders Behring Breivik phoned a government ministry in 2010 requesting membership lists of Norway’s political parties’ youth groups.
It was a worker in what today is the Ministry of Government Administration and Church Affairs (FAD), which received the request from someone who introduced himself as Anders Behring Breivik just over a year before the terrorist accused attacked the government quarter and the Labour Youth League summer camp on Utøya….
The employee who received the inquiry understood that Behring Breivik was a journalist who wanted access to member records.
However, since the Ministry does not put on any such list, he could not consider such a request would be complied with….

In March 2011, about four months before the 7/22 attacks, someone with an educated, Eastern Norway accent phoned the governmental offices and talked about a maniesto and shooting Labor Youth (AUF) members. The person strongly criticized the Labor coalition government, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, and former Labor Prime Minister, Gro Harlem Brundtland.
According to NRK, the threat was written down on a note by the receptionist receiving the call and forwarded to her superior. The caller’s name, phone number, and date of the conversation were detailed on the note. Since the call was not perceived as a direct threat, it was apparently not forwarded to the police.
Investigation materials that NRK know the content of shows how serious the phonecall in retrospect may seem:
• The caller called out the government and Stoltenberg
• The conversation was in very negative terms
• Gro Harlem Brundtland was also recorded with negative formulations
• The person spoke of a manifesto
• He talked about shooting young AUF-ers
After talking a few minutes with the switchboard was the caller put on to an employee in a ministry. Whoever it was is now unknown….

The phone conversation lasted a couple of minutes. One of Breivik’s lawyers, Vibeke Hein Bæra, says that an audio log of the conversation should exist, and that it is important to etablish if Breivik was the caller. Bæra says the lawyers have talked to Breivik regarding the conversation, but she will not go into details.
According to the Government Office’s Service Center, the police have still not requested the sound log. According to NRK sources, the police have focused on the paper note made by the receptionist, and even entered the ruins of the building together with the receptionist in search of the note for about an hour without success.
Anders Behring Breivik’s defenders say it is very important to find out if it was he who phoned in a threat to the government’s switchboard in March and warned it would happen, or if there was another who knew of his plans….

Norwegian newspaper, Dagbladet, reports that the Norwegian police, in cooperation with other nations’ police forces, are now carrying out investigations in relation to the Breivik case in 16 different countries.

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….
Without a lawyer
