At today’s press conference broadcast by several Norwegian media, police lawyer Christian Hatlo stated, “We are not going to be requesting further solitary confinement past Monday.”

Nevertheless, the mass murderer will continue to remain without access to other prisoners or the outside world, as well as a ban on visitors, letters, and media.

As inquiries into the Utøya mass murder continue, police have found 186 empty bullet casings on the island so far. An unspecified amount of unused ammunition was also recovered.

Whilst it is still unclear how many shots Breivik fired during the massacre that left 69 dead, Officer Hatlo reports that, “We have come a long way and are soon finished with our examinations on the island. 467 of the Utøya aggrieved have been interviewed so far.”

319 of the approximately 420 aggrieved following the Oslo bombing have also undergone questioning, with 510 others, including Breivik’s friends and acquaintances, remaining.

“Moreover, we have sent 35 letters of request [for interview] to foreign courts in several different countries in connection with his travels and purchases, etc. 20 have been granted so far,” said the police lawyer.

“Our main focus is still carrying out as quick and thorough an investigation as possible so he can be tried before the summer of 2012, as well as looking into whether Breivik had any accomplices. Although we still believe Breivik acted alone, it is too early to conclude for certain.”

Breivik himself has undergone 14 interviews lasting in excess of 100 hours, and police have made 430 pages of notes.
