Anders Behring Breivik rules out verdict appeal

August 25, 2012

He said appealing would legitimise the court, which he rejects.

Breivik admits killing 77 people in bomb and shooting attacks last year. He says this was necessary to prevent “Islamisation” and insists he is sane.

Prosecutors – who had sought an insanity ruling – also told the Oslo court they would not appeal.

Breivik said he did not recognise the court, which he contended had “sided with the multicultural majority in parliament”, but added: “I cannot appeal against the judgement because by appealing I would legitimise the court.”

He went on to say: “I wish to apologise to all militant nationalists in Norway and Europe for not managing to kill more people” – but was cut off by the judge, who said this was not the time to address people outside the court.

Delivering her verdict earlier on Friday, Judge Wenche Elisabeth Arntzen said the court considered Breivik to be suffering from “narcissistic personality characteristics” but not psychosis.

Breivik was convicted of terrorism and premeditated murder, and given the maximum sentence of 21 years’ imprisonment.

However, the judge said the jail term could be prolonged at a later date if he is deemed to remain a danger to society.

She set the minimum length of imprisonment to 10 years.

Court-appointed psychiatrists had disagreed on Breivik’s sanity. A first team which examined him declared him to be a paranoid schizophrenic, but the second found he was sane.
