Anders Behring Breivik’s Defence Counsel wants those he feels are responsible for radicalising Breivik as witnesses.
Geir Lippestad already has two people in mind, Peder Nøstvold Jensen who goes by the Fjordman online and Document.no editor Hans Rustad.
“It is too easy to stick your hand up in the air and say I have no idea how anyone could think of doing something like Anders Behring Breivik did. You are accountable when you express yourself in an extreme way,” he told VG.
Stating that “when people make claims they say is fact and that they have evidence,” he continues, “then one must also have a responsibility for what happens later.”
“We’re not talking about criminal liability, but those who are the source of the opinions, must assume they are part of the analysis.”
Mr Lippestad believes that what these men wrote online strongly influenced Breivik’s actions on the 22nd July.
