Confusion surrounds Breivik police calls / News / The Foreigner

The Foreigner Confusion surrounds Breivik police calls. Indicted Anders Behring Breivik claims he dialled the police emergency number several times during his Utøya shooting spree but was not satisfied with their service. Lawyer Geir Lippestad says, “He explains he rang the police himself well before his arrest on 10 occasions, and his calls were answered twice. He then introduced himself as commander, using his full name. My client said he wished to surrender – using the word ‘capitulate’ – and asked for confirmation from police this had been accepted.” “He claims he was given answers he didn’t understand, saying he subsequently asked to be called back to confirm his message about surrendering had been received,” Mr Lippestad tells Aftenposten, underlining he has not seen police phone logs, but has asked to hear the recordings.

Confusion surrounds Breivik police calls

Indicted Anders Behring Breivik claims he dialled the police emergency number several times during his Utøya shooting spree but was not satisfied with their service.



Lawyer Geir Lippestad says, “He explains he rang the police himself well before his arrest on 10 occasions, and his calls were answered twice. He then introduced himself as commander, using his full name. My client said he wished to surrender – using the word ‘capitulate’ – and asked for confirmation from police this had been accepted.”

“He claims he was given answers he didn’t understand, saying he subsequently asked to be called back to confirm his message about surrendering had been received,” Mr Lippestad tells Aftenposten, underlining he has not seen police phone logs, but has asked to hear the recordings.

Police confirm they have registered a phone call from somebody who claimed to be Breivik, but will not go into details about whether there were any others, or how they were handled.

Aftenposten asks Breivik’s lawyer if his client has made these allegations purely to put police in a bad light.

“That could be. Nevertheless, if it was the case that he rang and police did not respond, as the Defence, it is my task to point this out,” he says.
