Main Question or Discussion Point

The right-wing Norwegian extremist who killed 77 people last July has blasted his psychiatric report as "lies".

In a letter to Norwegian tabloid Verdans Gang, Anders Behring Breivik said 80% of the report was wrong.

Psychiatrists Torgeir Husby and Synne Soerheim concluded he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, but some experts have questioned the diagnosis.

Breivik's trial is expected to start on 16 April and his lawyers say he wants to be tried as sane.

In the 38-page letter, Breivik described being sent to a psychiatric ward as a "fate worse than death". "To send a political activist to an asylum is more sadistic and more evil than killing him!" he wrote.

Im also not convinced hes a paranoid schizophrenic. When i first heard about the diagnosis, my first thought was that it was the ultimate way to take revenge on him and his ideas. What do you guys think?

Btw id like to see the 38 page letter (translated to english), if anyone has a link please post it.

The newspapers have chosen not to publish the letter.

Furthermore, Breivik has admitted that the Knight Templars organization does not exist, and that what he has offered is an inspirational blueprint for a future organization he hopes he, and others will build.

Being mentally is is not a get-out-free card from jail. You are likely to be locked up in a psychiatric hospital for good.
