Police probe financial link to Norwegian massacre
A Norwegian man who killed 77 people in a bomb and shooting rampage may have used funds kept in Bermuda or other offshore jurisdictions. Reuters news agency reported that Anders Behring Breivik, who has confessed to the July 22 attacks in Norway, also told authorities he had saved “a lot of money” to finance his activities.
Investigators are to look for Breivik’s purported savings in Bermuda, Antigua and Barbuda, and tax haven jurisdictions.
In a manifesto e-mailed on the day of the attacks, Breivik claimed to have saved four million crowns, or $743,200, some of which was sent to the Caribbean and eastern Europe. A 100-man police team is now investigating the case.
