Prison builds one-man hospital for Breivik
Norwegian authorities are converting a high-security prison wing into a psychiatric unit to house Norwegian gunman Anders Behring Breivik in case he is found insane, a report said on Thursday.
The daily newspaper Verdens Gang reported on its website that none of Norway’s existing mental facilities are considered secure enough to house Breivik, whose sanity is the key focus of his ongoing trial.
If Breivik is found insane, he would be committed to the new facility at the prison in Ila, where he is already being housed during his trial.
"We are building a high-security hospital in Ila," deputy health minister Robin Koss told the newspaper, adding the facility near Oslo still needed state certification.
Breivik, a right-wing extremist, wants to prove he is sane because he thinks people may give his views more weight and not simply dismiss them as the rantings of a madman.
