Oslo: A Norwegian court on Friday extended by four weeks the isolation detention of the man who confessed to killing 77 people after a shooting rampage at a youth camp and a bombing in the capital saying it still does not know if he acted alone.
Anders Behring Breivik must be kept in complete isolation for fear he would tamper with evidence and contact possible accomplices, the Oslo District Court ruled.
Judge Hugo Abelseth acknowledged Breivik had described his isolation as "boring and monotonous, and a sadistic torture method," but said he must nonetheless spend at least four more weeks there. He said the next hearing would be held on September 19.
Survivors and Victims are not allowed into Friday session, but were represented by lawyers.
The 32-Year old Right Wing, extremist has admitted killing eight people when he exploded a truck bomb outside government offices, then fatally shooting 69 people on Utoya island nearby.
Breivik arrived at the closed hearing in a dark car, dressed in a dark suit, under heavy police protection. It was his second court appearance since the July 22 attacks.
His earlier request to wear a long black tuxedo to the session had been rejected by the court, which described it as "unnecessarily disturbing and provocative."
Breivik denies criminal guilt because he believes the massacre was necessary to save Norway and Europe. He said in a 1,500-page manifesto posted online before the attacks that they are an attempt at cultural revolution, aimed at purging Europe of Muslims and punishing politicians that have embraced multiculturalism.
Breivik claimed to be a member of the Knights Templar - a network of modern-day crusaders - that would launch a revolution against a Europe spoiled by Muslim immigration.
In its ruling Friday, the court said "there is a considerable likelihood that he has a realistic opportunity" of tampering with evidence unless he is held in isolation.
It also said police "have not been able to verify whether the suspect could have had accomplices," and for that reason he should also be kept in isolation.
Breivik has said he acted alone and after weeks of questioning and a reenactment of the shootings with Breivik on Utoya police said they believe he is telling the truth.
On Friday, police said they wanted to keep Breivik in isolation because they didn't want him to talk to other inmates although they still believe he acted alone.
