Anders Behring Breivik Appears In Court For the 3rd Trial Day
Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian accused of killing 77 people in July 2011, comes on Wednesday in court for the third day in his trial, which started on April 16, after the new medical examination declared him fit for trial, mentally sane, which could bring him the maximum of the sentence for this type of crimes.
On Monday Breivik entered the court showing no remorse for what he had did and confessed to have done and announced he did not recognize any Norwegian court of law, because the courts of law are appointed by politicians who support multiculturalism.
When asked how he was pleading, Breivik said he did not plead guilty, adding that while he did acknowledge the facts as he was charged, he did not acknowledge any guilt to them.
On the first day, the names of those who were killed were read in court, in an atmosphere of “icy civility” which has surprised the entire world. Images of the massacre were displayed while the judge announced that they would not be published by any television, while the rest of the trial is televised.
The prosecution said that Breivik had some interesting events in his past, like selling fake diploma certificates, dropping out of job to go home and play World of Warcraft for an entire year.
The Knight Templar organization Breivik said he was part of does not exist as he describes it, the prosecutor also told the court. Speaking of the uniform the whole world saw on Breivik’s military appearance, the badge on it is said to have been modified to read “Marxist hunter Norway” and “Multicultur traitor hunting permit.”
The prosecution then showed the schedule Breivik executed on the day of July 22, 2012, when he killed all the 77 people. He is said to have watched a video called “Knight Templars” in four parts made by himself by collecting photos from the internet and sequencing them while music was playing in the background. The video is about Marxist ideology, Islamic colonization, hope and a new beginning.
At the showing of the propaganda movie, which was not televised, Breivik seemed to have torn in court, with the defense asked him if he was ok. The image with the famous killer crying was sent to all the news agencies in the world.
He had a compendium of principles for the “revolution” he was going to promote, and the prosecution says he “has send it to the world” little before he commenced his criminal actions, by an email that was having attached a document called “2083 – A European Declaration of Independence.” He is said to have sent the email to more than 8,000 people, with only some 900 receiving it. The email addresses had been gathered for three years.
At 3 p.m. he was shown approaching the governmental building, where he staged his attack, with the intend of killing the prime minister of Norway. On Utoya island he arrived at 5 p.m.
At 6 p.m. prosecution says Behring talked to the police for the first time, and said he was the commander of the anti-communist movement and that he wanted to surrender. 24 minutes later he repeated the call, saying he had carried out an operation against Islamic colonization.
In his opening statement, Breivik’s lawyer said that his client, while admitting to have killed the people in Oslo and Utoya, does not admit to any guilt, saying that he was in self-defense. The defense demands that Breivik be permitted to express his point of view, and even read a document that would take 30 minutes to read.
On Tuesday, Breivik used only five minutes out of five days that had been initially placed at his disposal to explain the court his Islamophobic views. In his exposition, which was not broadcasted on television, because the court did not want the trial to become a platform for anti-Islamic ideas, Breivik said that the things he had done were “cruel but necessary” because he was protecting the “ethnic Norwegians” from multiculturalism.
He has claimed “legitimate defense” and shocked the entire audience when he said that if the chance were presented, he would do it again. He described himself as a “writer” working from a prison.
In a hearing in February, Breivik is said to have staged his killing spree because he wanted a “preventive attack against state traitors,” who, in his opinion, had determined the “ethnic cleansing” of Norway.
Breivik explained as he took the stand that he toned down his rhetoric because he wanted to prove he was sane and that his words and actions were not those of a lunatic. If found guilty he could spend 21 years in prison.
According to the Norwegian law, the prison warden can decide to prolong the staying in prison indefinitely if the inmate showed no sign of recuperation while serving the time.11
