Norway’s neo-Nazi Anders Breivik, who is seeking parole, is as dangerous as he was when he killed 77 people ten years ago, a psychiatrist who was monitoring him said Wednesday.
Anders Breivik, who was sentenced in 2012 to 21 years in prison, will appear before the commission this week with the possibility of an extension, which will determine whether he will be released early. He says he has given up violence.
“I appreciate Breivik having the same diagnosis as ever,” psychiatrist Randy Rosenquist told court in Telemark district of southern Norway on the day of the security practice at the Sky prison gym where the terrorist is being held. “My first assessment is that the risk of future violence has not changed since 2012 and 2013, when I developed it,” he said, according to the dpa, taken by Agerpres.
The specialist considers the patient to be suffering from personality disorders and described him as “social, historical and narcissistic”.
The psychiatric report – the only one requested by the court – is considered decisive on parole, which is currently considered highly unlikely.
Breivik complains about the conditions of detention
Dr. While Rosenquist was testifying, Breivik broke out of his usual indifference and shook his head several times. He complained about the conditions of detention, claiming that he had been treated “like an animal” in the absence of adequate contact with the outside world and was not allowed to have meaningful relationships or direct social interactions with others.
The prisoner has three cells in the prison, a TV with a DVD and a game console and typewriter. In 2016, he was able to receive a sentence condemning the Norwegian government for inhumane and degrading behavior on the grounds that he was isolated. However, on appeal the result of the first instance was quashed.
Responding to questions from defensive lawyer Oystein Storrvik, Breivik said he was often isolated and humiliated daily, studying 12 hours a day or making business plans. The very relaxed conditions of detention, the strictness, and the prohibition of certain readings, make it difficult to complete his studies.
On Tuesday, when asked to prove in front of a three – judge tribunal that he was no longer a violent militant, Breivik said: “It’s up to the community to decide whether a person who has been tried for a crime will never do it again, because it’s possible or not.” He said he could offer his “word of honor” that he would leave Norway if released.
According to the AFP, Breivik’s parole request shocked the country. The families of the victims, survivors and experts fear that he will use the process as a political platform, from where the press broadcasts, and his behavior – Hitler salute, placards, ideological logic – confirmed these fears.
On Wednesday, he reappeared in court with a political news identity, although a judge asked him to refrain from making such gestures the previous day. However, Breivik said he was willing to change and follow the rules.
On Tuesday, Brewick saluted Nazi in court and shouted “Stop your genocide against our white race!”
On July 22, 2001, a bomb exploded near the Oslo headquarters of the Breivik government. The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a police station, killing at least eight people and wounding 69 others, most of them teenagers.
