Unprecedented in Norwegian practice, a second psychiatric commission was set up to evaluate ABBs sanity after a massive outcry against the previous report that concluded he was judiciallyinsane. This new commission, having worked since January, has in addition to detailed conversations with ABB (as the previous commission also had), had the benefit of a 24/7 surveillance/observation period of a month by a team of psychiatric staff. (The court ordered that ABB was to undergo an involuntary observational period at a mental hospital.) ABB himself has been furious at being labeled insane, and has ordered his defense attorneys to argue for his sanity. The trial starts April 16.
