Anders Behring Breivik refuted a psychiatric report that found him legally insane in relation to the shooting spree and bombing attack that massacred 77 people in Oslo, Norway, last year.
The 33-year old right-wing extremist admitted to carrying out the killings last July, but denies criminal responsibility. He has argued that his actions were politically motivated as he targeted government buildings and a summer camp organized by the ruling center-left Labor Party.
It is not me who is described in that report... Everything I presented was entirely logical, Breivik said of the report that diagnosed him as a paranoid schizophrenic, according to BBC News. I don't see the slightest possibility I will be judged insane.
The report is the first of two; the second one determined that Breivik is indeed sane. Both reports will be considered by a five-judge panel, which will determine whether or not Breivik will go to prison or go into psychiatric care when his verdict is delivered in July.
Breivik has said that he should be put to death or be acquitted. Norway's legal system does not have the death penalty.
If he is determined to be sane and convicted, Breivik could receive a maximum sentence of 21 years in prison, which could be extended if it is determined that he continues to be a threat to society. If he is determined to be insane, he will receive compulsory psychiatric treatment.
Breivik has described committal to psychiatric facility as a fate worse than death, according to Al Jazeera.
Breivik criticized the psychiatric evaluators that determined him to be insane.
They lack expertise in evaluating violent political activists, Breivik said, Al Jazeera reported.
The confessed mass murderer has made it clear that his actions were politically motivated, targeting the the Labor Party specifically for its policies on immigration. Breivik, who has staunch anti-Islamic views, has said that he believes Norway is threatened by the influx of Muslim immigrants.
He has said that he hoped the killings would influence the Labor Party to review its immigrations policies, according to Al Jazeera.
But instead they continue in the same direction, so the grounds for struggle are unfortunately even more relevant now than before July 22, he added, referring to the date of his mssacre.
