The Foreigner Norway police discover Breivik mole. Police have today, Friday, asked Oslo District Court to revoke its appointment of one counsel in the Anders Behring Breivik terror trial case following alleged leaks to the media. Officers say they suspect the hitherto unnamed individual’s unauthorised confidential criminal case document disclosures have been “extensive”, and have investigated where these could have originated. “Steps were taken to identify the source of any leaks before documents were handed out on 03rd February 2012. These were performed by giving each counsel a unique electronic copy of the case, with traceable signs inserted in selected documents. Police made further investigations to identify where the documents came from after these were described and shown by the media,” they write in a press release.

Police have today, Friday, asked Oslo District Court to revoke its appointment of one counsel in the Anders Behring Breivik terror trial case following alleged leaks to the media.



Officers say they suspect the hitherto unnamed individual’s unauthorised confidential criminal case document disclosures have been “extensive”, and have investigated where these could have originated.

“Steps were taken to identify the source of any leaks before documents were handed out on 03rd February 2012. These were performed by giving each counsel a unique electronic copy of the case, with traceable signs inserted in selected documents. Police made further investigations to identify where the documents came from after these were described and shown by the media,” they write in a press release.

Oslo police have now sent the matter for investigation of possible criminal offences to the Office of Public Prosecutions in Oslo. This matter has been forwarded to Asker og Bærum District Police.

More than 170 counsels are involved in the case. The court is expected to handle the matter next week.
