Anders Behring Breivik ‘not accountable for attacks’
Anders Behring Breivik ‘not accountable for attacks’ Psychiatrists have found that Anders Behring Breivik was insane at the time of the crime, the VG daily reported Tuesday on its website.
If confirmed, this would mean that the right wing extremist who killed 77 people four months ago cannot be sentenced to prison but must undergo psychiatric care.
“The court-appointed psychiatrists have concluded that Anders Behring Breivik was sick when he killed 77 people,” VG writes, without revealing its sources.
The two psychiatrists, Synne Serheim and Torgeir Husby, delivered their finding to the Oslo district court on Tuesday morning. A press conference is due at 1:00pm (1200 GMT).
Breivik, 32, was suffering from a “psychosis” – a mental state that could alter his judgment leading up to and at the time of the attacks, VG writes.
Their report still needs to be examined by a legal medical commission to ensure that it fulfils all the professional requirements.
