NEWS IN BRIEF: Police are to interrogate Anders Behring Breivik in more detail about his manifesto following this week’s interviews of English Defence League blogger Paul Ray.
Breivik’s manifesto contains codes, believed to be coordinates of several key European cities. Ray landed in Norway on Wednesday from Malta for voluntary questioning, distancing himself from any involvement to the massacres on July 22.
“He [Ray] has been questioned for a total of 15 hours. The topics have been his knowledge of the accused, other people, the manifesto and the coordinates, Knights Templar, and English Defence League,” said police attorney Pål-Fredrik Hjort Kraby to Dagbladet.
Anders Behring Breivik’s other alleged international links are also under investigation.
Police are now planning to confront Breivik, who they say “has been questioned for nearly 60 hours, is detailed, quiet and cooperative”, with information supplied by Ray, as well as to go deeper into central parts of his manifesto.
According to Mr Hjort Kraby, “we are now putting the bits together [from what Ray has told us] and going to include them in questioning of the accused.”
Ray is still classified as a witness in the case, and is now due to return to Britain for the first time since he moved to Malta after being banned due to his extreme political views.
