Oslo, Apr 15 (ANI): Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, who confessed to killing 77 people in a bombing and shooting rampage, is likely to say during his trial on Monday that he should be facing a military tribunal, not a criminal court.
His defence lawyer, Vibeke Hein Baera, has said that part of their strategy is to call a series of extremists as witnesses, to question an initial psychiatric report that deemed Breivik to be criminally insane.
A second report disputed those findings and a panel of two professional and three lay judges will have to decide whether Breivik should be sent for treatment at a psychiatric hospital or jailed for life, Sky News reports.
According to the report, the prosecution is expected to tell the court the killings were pre-meditated murder.
They will say that he bought a fake police uniform and badges in the Czech Republic in 2010 before renting a farm 90 miles from Oslo, where he wrote a 1,500-page manifesto and started to assemble a bomb from fertilisers, diesel and chemicals.
The gunman's lawyer has said Breivik is also likely to say that he regrets he 'didn't go further.'
According to the report, cameras relaying the trial to over a dozen satellite courts around Norway and television stations around the world will be switched off during his evidence to deny him a platform for his extremist views. (ANI)
