Neo-nazi mass murderer branded no less dangerous after years in jail

A psychiatrist warned that the neo-Nazi mass murderer has ‘asocial, histrionic, and narcissistic’ personality disorders
Neo-nazi mass murderer branded no less dangerous after years in jail

Anders Breivik, who killed 77 people in Norway's worst peacetime attack, is still as dangerous today as he was 10 years ago, a court was warned on Wednesday.

Breivik is in the process of seeking conditional release from prison 10 years after he killed 77 individuals with a truck bomb in Oslo and a mass shooting on the island of Utoya.

Having appeared at his parole hearing on Tuesday, where he gave a Nazi salute, Breivik claimed he has distanced himself from violence and is seeking to be released after serving the minimum 10 years.

However, speaking to the court on Wednesday, psychiatrist Randi Rosenqvist claimed that the “risk of future acts of violence” being committed by Breivik has not diminished.

The risk of future acts of violence has not changed since 2012 and 2013 when I did my first evaluations

According to the psychiatrist, who has examined Breivik on multiple occasions over the past decade, the convicted murderer still suffers from “asocial, histrionic, and narcissistic” personality disorders.

The far-right extremist was sentenced to 21 years in prison after the attack, with the court able to extend his time behind bars if he is still deemed to be a threat to society.
