Norwegian prosecutors have searched a 21-year prison sentence for a right-wing extremist who’s alleged to have opened fire outside a mosque near Oslo this past year.
He’s accused of murdering his half-sister and committing a tried shooting Bareum in August.
“He appears likely to be harmful over a lengthy period,” prosecutor Johan Øverberg stated on the previous day of this trial on Wednesday.
The Norwegian Public Prosecutors Office also asserts that the alleged murder of his 17-year-old half-sister, Johanne Zhangjia Ihle-Hansen, was a”planned implementation” and had”racist motivations”.
The asked prison sentence includes a minimal detention interval of 14 decades and may be extended indefinitely when the convicted individual has been deemed to be harmful.
Norwegian courts don’t trouble life sentences.
Philip Manshaus’s defense has asked for an acquittal, arguing that there are doubts within the accused of criminal responsibility and he had a”fairly paranoid perception of this planet”.
“When the court finds him reckless, he could be sentenced to forced psychiatric attention,” said defense counsel Unni Fries.
Throughout the trial, three specialists had discovered Manshaus criminally accountable.
About 10 August 2019, a defendant wearing a bullet-proof helmet and vest camera opened fire in the Al-Noor Islamic Centre, without inducing severe harms, before being subdued by worshippers.
There were just 3 people in the mosque preparing for Eid parties at the time of this shooting.
Police later discovered the body of the embraced half-sister, of Chinese origin, that was shot four times in their dwelling.
Prosecutors state Manshaus” desired to kill as many Muslims as a potential” and also have worried the accused shows no guilt.
Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg called it a”direct assault on Norwegian Muslims”.
A verdict is expected on the trial following week.
