Oslo, Feb 1 (ANI): Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik wants to give his first interview to a foreign television channel before his trial opens in April, his lawyer has said.
"Breivik has maintained that he would like to be interviewed by a foreign television channel," Attorney Geir Lippestad told Norwegian tabloid Verdens Gang.
Lippestad said Breivik's decision came despite his advise against giving any media interviews because 'it is not wise to speak out before the trial'.
Numerous Norwegian and foreign media outlets have expressed an interest in interviewing Breivik in the high-security Ila prison near Oslo, where he is being held pending the opening of his trial on April 16, The Telegraph reports.
Breivik, 32, has confessed to setting off a bomb that ripped through Oslo's government district, killing eight people, then opening fire at the summer camp of the governing Labor Party's youth wing, killing another sixty-nine.
An initial psychiatric evaluation concluded Breivik was criminally insane, meaning he could not be held accountable for his actions, but following a storm of criticism the Oslo District Court appointed two new psychiatrists to provide a second opinion. (ANI)
