Authorities fear the 32-year-old terrorist could try to communicate with potential helpers. Only the judge, police, and the accused will be present.

“The police have collectedextensive material from their investigations so far. Connected to this [closed door remand hearing] is also the statement made by the accused that there are two other "cells" in Norway,” said Judge Hugo Abelseth in his decision.

The only question discussed will be about continued solitary confinement, reports NRK.

In his statement, Judge Abelseth has also denied Breivik’s previous request to appear in tails, saying the “serious nature of the matter” means his clothing would seem “unnecessarily intrusive, offensive and provocative, therefore disrespecting the dignity of the Court.”
