NEWS IN BRIEF: Police say further witness and Anders Behring Breivik interviews will mean taking longer to clear up the case than anticipated.
Over 450 people have been questioned about the July massacres to date. Police lawyer Pål-Fredrik Hjort Kraby does not discount interviewing further witnesses, including the former neo-Nazi arrested on Saturday. EDL blogger Paul Ray is also still in contact with police.
“It is too early to say [how long this will take], conclusively, but it will be several months before this is finished. Several people we want to talk to could turn up in the course of the investigation,” he said to Aftenposten.
Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, attended some police examinations in the presence of a judge last week, including some of the Utøya survivors under 18.
“It is important to be at these interrogations to obtain information from witnesses who were there,” he said.
Mr Lippestad was also present at Breivik’s Utøya reconstruction session where his client demonstrated his shooting positions.
