Breivik becoming a 'cult figure', lawyer warns
The lawyer who defended Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has voiced concern that his client is becoming a cult figure, but insisted the right-wing extremist should have the right to express himself.
Lawyer Geir Lippestad said the best weapon against Breivik's anti-Islamic and anti-multicultural stance was open debate.
"What is most worrying is that I keep receiving messages from around the world that Breivik is increasingly a cult figure in some circles," Lippestad wrote in his memoirs published in Norway on Thursday.
