Norway gunman banned from reading ‘new manifesto’
The terror trial against an anti-Muslim fanatic who confessed to killing 77 people in Norway starts on Monday.
Oslo: Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, who confessed to killing 77 people in a bombing and shooting rampage, has been banned from reading a ‘new manifesto’ he has written.
According to a lawyer Odd Gron, Breivik said ‘he has written a presentation that will take an hour, and he wants to read that.’
“But the court have sent signals to us in a meeting that they won`t allow that,” The Telegraph quoted Gron, as saying.
Breivik handed a copy of the presentation, having more than 8,000-words, to his lawyers when he met them on Friday.
According to the paper, to help him in his preparation, Breivik was supplied with a computer, a political dictionary and a paper copy of the manifesto he sent out on the day he launched his massacre.
His trial opens in an Oslo courtroom today and is expected to last ten weeks.
