Oslo, Aug 23 (ANI): Norwegian massacre gunman Anders Behring Breivik believes that his friends, who "think the same way" as him, will continue his "work" abroad, his lawyer has claimed.
Geir Lippestad also said that the self-confessed mass murderer claimed to be a "warrior" and a "soldier" who was saving Europe from disaster.
Although he acknowledges the fact that people viewed him as a "demon", the lawyer claimed that they would "understand" why he wanted to become one of the world's worst serial killers, The Telegraph reports.
Despite admitting the murders, Breivik believes that he has not committed any crime, and had not expressed any remorse for his actions, the lawyer added.ust over a month ago, Breivik, dressed as a policeman and armed with rifles and pistols, carried out his hour-long massacre, indiscriminately killing members of a youth camp on Utoya, a holiday island 25 miles from Oslo.
Sixty-nine people lost their lives during the incident, and reports suggest that he had earlier set off the bomb in central Oslo, killing eight.
He claimed that his client believes those people who think that such an action was necessary to save Europe from failing, are planning other atrocities.
"He explains he has some friends abroad that think the same way as him and that they will continue his work," he said.
"He knows he has done something dreadful and he knows that he is being looked upon as a demon. But he explains everything and says it was necessary because if I don't do this, Europe will fail and Europe will fall," the lawyer said.
"He says it was necessary for the course and in that context he looks upon himself as a warrior and soldier who has the right case. He believes in his head that he has done something right for Europe and starting a war of some kind," Lippestad added.
He also claimed that his client had found it "difficult to sit in isolation" in jail. The prisoner is "calm" but still "living in his own world ... and is not showing remorse".
Breivik is expected to remain in solitary confinement until his trial next year. (ANI)
