UPDATED: Oslo District Court has sentenced mass killer Anders Behring Breivik to continued solitary confinement for another four weeks in Ila prison.



Reading today’s verdict, Judge Hugo Abelseth justified his decision to keep Breivik isolated “until otherwise decided by the Prosecution or Court but not past 19 September”, saying he regarded “there was a real danger Breivik could try to tamper with evidence.”

This second remand hearing was held behind closed doors, with authorities fearing Breivik could try to contact any potential helpers on the outside.

Lawyer Brynjar Meling, representing 13 of the AUF survivors of the massacre, told VG after the proceedings ended at 13:30 local time, one of his clients had a strong desire to be present today.

“He needed to see and experience how the accused related to the case in court.”

His request was denied.

Sigurd Klomsæt, another of the lawyers representing the bereaved families said to NRK “he [Breivik] was completely devoid of humility.”

“He doesn’t understand the torture and suffering he has caused many people and was [only] concerned about his own situation. Those who will be evaluating him face a challenge,” he concluded, saying he reacted to something Breivik did, without going into details.

Breivik has called his solitary confinement “boring, monotonous and a sadistic method of torture.”
