When the public meets the Norwegian mass murderer and look into his eyes

Monday, 14 November 2011
People have been queuing since 6 hours in the morning in front of the Norwegian court where the Norwegian mass murderer, Anders Breivik Behring would be defending himself of the killings and bombing he carried out a few months ago.

For the first time, the public made of victims are seeking t get a place in the court room to hear the case openly. Being there is a way to get over the trauma of some of the survivors, according to some authorities.


A long line snakes outside the courthouse in Oslo, where the legal authority on Monday decided on carrying out the trial of terrorist, Behring Anders Breivik, according to reports from Norway.

People have been queuing since six o'clock in the morning. There is a certain expectation in the air because it is the first time he is heard openly and visible to the public.

It is not though that people would hope for something spectacular from the trial because it is quite clear that he will remain in custody. People just want to see him according to reports from journalists on the ground.

Some 600 people would be entering the building, but it is only about 100 spectators that are provided special permit that can fit in the courtroom along with 150 accredited journalists and some 50 relatives. The rest, i.e. around 300, will see the proceedings on big screens in other rooms.

Norwegian law prohibits the direct reports of the proceedings during the trial proceedings. The media may only describe what it looked like in the courtroom.
