Police, BMA have not been approached about Breivik’s assets

Bermuda’s police and monetary authority have not yet been asked to assist with a reported local probe into the finances of Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik.

Reuters news agency reported earlier this week that Bermuda is among several countries to be investigated by Norwegian police looking for clues on how he got his funding.

Breivik has confessed to carrying out a bombing and mass shooting in Norway on June 22 that left 77 people dead.

According to Reuters, Bermuda, Antigua and Barbuda are among the “offshore tax havens” to be probed by a 100-strong team of Norwegian investigators.

However, asked if the Bermuda Police Service was assisting the Norwegian authorities, a spokesman replied: “At present the BPS has no knowledge of this matter.”

Asked the same question, a spokeswoman for the Bermuda Monetary Authority said: “We have not at this point had any request for assistance.”
