Norway confessed killer's mother says as much of half of what he has told police is untrue

June 14, 2012 - 12:03 PM

OSLO - The mother of Anders Behring Breivik — the man who has confessed to killing 77 people in Norway last summer — claims that as much as half of the information her son has told police is fabricated.

The statements from Breivik's mother were read out in court Thursday as psychiatrists presented a 239-page report about the 33-year old extremist's mental health.

Breivik's mother isn't appearing at his trial because of health-related reasons, and has not been named due to Norwegian privacy rules.

She described how Breivik transformed from a caring son into an aggressive and secretive loner.

She also said that "half of what he's told police is a lie" — including exaggerating both his travels and education.
