– I can confirm that the defendant has been detained for four weeks, defense attorney Nils Anders Grønås told VG.
Grønås said that the accused had not yet been questioned, based on his state of health. The man has been hospitalized since he was arrested.

The defense said, however, that the accused man was having a hard time.
– I can’t say much about what we’ve talked about, but I see that he struggles a lot.
