Breivik judge caught playing solitaire in court
Tuesday 05 June 2012
One of the five judges in the case of the alleged mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has been photographed playing solitaire in court.
The image, published in Norwegian media, shows one of the case's three lay judges, Ernst Henning Eielsen, playing the card game on his computer as a Swedish professor gives evidence.
The game was reportedly running on a browser window for up to 16 minutes before the court was adjourned for lunch.
Mr Eielsen has not denied playing the game, according to a court spokeswoman.
"The judges are attentively following what is being said and what is being presented to the court," spokeswoman Irene Ramm said. "There are different ways of staying focused."
Breivik is facing trial for two attacks, carried out in Oslo and on the nearby island of Utoya, in July last year, which left a total of 77 people dead.
