Exploitation fears pre Breivik hearing

There are concerns Anders Behring Breivik will use today’s Oslo District Court remand hearing to spread his manifesto propaganda.



More than 160 foreign and Norwegian journalists have received accreditation to the proceedings, the first opportunity to film and photograph the terrorist in court.

Four courtrooms have been set aside, one for the mass murderer, one for the press, one for members of the public, and one for the aggrieved. Sound and picture will be transmitted from the hearing. Police are currently searching them with bomb dogs.

Whilst Breivik has already stated he wishes to make a speech today, as with his previous remand hearing, national 22nd July support group members believe this is just part of his self-promotion strategy.

Defence counsel Mette Yvonne Larsen representing some of the victims tells NRK, “I am concerned this could become some sort of show.”

“The court has governed proceedings strictly to date. Nevertheless, now that it has opened for photography and those types of things, I fear a situation could occur where he might exploit the opportunity he gets for a platform as mentioned in his manifesto.”

Approximately 80 aggrieved, surviving relatives are expected at Oslo District Court late to witness what is believed to be the terrorist’s last appearance before his April 16th trial.

Reports suggest 25 counsels representing victims and their families, as well several support persons and guardians will also be attending. Police will be holding a press conference later.

Meanwhile, Anders Behring Breivik had prepared for police questioning with several notes and drawings that he then used in the interviews.

The police had questioned Breivik for around 200hrs by the middle of January. Breivik then stopped cooperating with the police.

In these interviews, police questioned him about the Norwegian Defence League (NDL) a group they believe Breivik was part of under the name Sigurd the Crusader. The terrorist is now using a computer in prison to prepare for his trial.
