Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian man who killed 77 people in two attacks last summer, said he will not appeal against a guilty verdict, should the Oslo court trying his case find him sane.

Breivik, who has freely admitted to the killings, claims he is “not guilty” because he was defending Norway from immigration and multiculturalism.

In the event he is found sane, he will be sent to prison for up to 21 years; but if the court finds him insane, he would likely be held for life in a psychiatric facility.

There is absolutely no reason to appeal if I am declared criminally accountable, Breivik said in court on Thursday.
