Breivik could get new assessment

Oslo District Court has asked parties suggest new experts to assess Anders Behring Breivik, reports suggest.



The previous report by Synne Sørheim and Torgeir Husby concluded that Breivik was psychotic, and suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.

This conclusion caused a lot of public debate but was accepted by both the defenders and prosecution in the case.

Prosecutors discounted a new assessment last week, but they have now been given until Tuesday to submit proposals.

According to VG, defence counsel Geir Lippestad has said that it will be unacceptable to use anyone who has spoken about the case in the media.

The court is expected to make its decision this week. Both parties will be given the chance to state their opinion before any new experts are appointed, if applicable.
