Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik had his first public court hearing on Monday.
During the proceedings, Breivik again admitted to killing 77 people in a July terrorist attack, but pleaded not guilty to acts of terrorism, feeling that he didn't do anything morally wrong. Breivik has maintained that the murders were done as an act of war against Muslims and immigrants in Europe.
The hearing was marked by Breivik's attempted grandstanding, and the judge had to stop Breivik from making speeches on a number of occasions.
I am a military commander in the Norwegian resistance movement, Breivik announced, before being cut off by Judge Torkjel Nesheim.
Breikiv also said that he didn't recognize the authority of the court, claiming that it was part of the multi-cultural society that's destroying Europe.
Meanwhile, police are still investigating Breivik's online network. In Oct., 19 people were arrested in Poland on suspicion of selling explosives and bomb-making material to the Norwegian over the Internet.
Breivik also maintained a number of Facebook accounts that he used to contact right-wing European groups such as the extremist English Defence League.
The Internet has obviously been a very important part of his life. Information gathering, all his business activities, games and communication with others, have been going online, said Breivik's lawyer, Geir Lippestad.
After his initial capture, Breivik said that he was leading one of 80 different anti-Islamic cells in Europe, which he contacted using aliases such as Sigurd Jorsalfare.
He has used other names if he has been in contact with persons and environments that he suspects may have been under surveillance, added Lippestad.
He has been very concerned about any activity that could be flagged, and did not wish to be identifiable or say anything that made him to be suspect. He has taken some precautions.
Police haven't discovered any other terrorist cells and still believe that Breivik worked alone.
We still think [Breivik] did this alone and we have not uncovered any accomplices. But it is far too early to draw any final conclusions, Oslo police prosecutor Christian Hatlo told Reuters.
For every day that passes we are increasingly sure... We have found nothing to suggest that accomplices exist even though we refuse to definitively rule out the possibility.
On Monday, the judge agreed with prosecutors that Breivik should be jailed for another 12 weeks at the Ila prison in Oslo. Breivik has called his four months at Ila, much of it spent in isolation, irrational torture.
On July 22, Breivik detonated a car bomb outside of Regjeringskvartalet, the home of the Norwegian government. Less than two hours later, he went to a youth-politics summer camp on the island of Utøya outside of Oslo and shot and killed 69 people, many of them teenagers.
During the hearing on Monday, Breivik tried to address the family of the victims, but was denied by the judge.
According to his 1,500 page manifesto 2083: A European Declaration of Independence, Breivik had been planning his attack for up to nine years before he went on his rampage. He outlined detailed instructions on how to attack government targets, believing that he was a crusader in a war against a Marxist-Islamic conspiracy.
Western Europe is today dominated by an alien system of beliefs, attitudes and values that we have come to know as 'Political Correctness,' Breivik wrote in 2083. Political Correctness seeks to impose a uniformity of thought and behavior on all Europeans and is therefore totalitarian in nature...Political Correctness is Marxism, with all that implies: loss of freedom of expression, thought control, inversion of the traditional social order, and, ultimately, a totalitarian state.
The European armed indigenous rights movements/resistance movements are just starting to emerge and this will continue in the coming decades. The armed fight for our survival lies ahead of us. The time for dialogue is now over. The time for armed resistance has come.
