Mass kill Breivik ‘not nuts’

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A PSY­CHI­ATRIC re­port on Nor­we­gian mass killer An­ders Breivik has found him sane enough to face trial and a jail term.

The find­ings con­tra­dict a pre­vi­ous eval­u­a­tion, pub­lished in Novem­ber, that found him legally bonkers.

Breivik is due in the dock on Mon­day over a bomb at­tack and shoot­ing spree last July that killed 77 peo­ple.

The 33-year-old, who in­sists he is men­tally sta­ble, was “pleased” with the new as­sess­ment, his lawyer said.

He told re­porters his client would de­fend his ac­tions dur­ing his 10week trial, adding, “He will also re­gret that he didn’t go fur­ther”.

Both re­ports will be con­sid­ered by the court when it de­cides, at the end of the trial, whether he should be sent to a psy­chi­atric ward or jail.
