Father of the only Georgian victim of the mass shooting on Norway`s island of Utoya has prepared a speech, which he is going to read at the proceeding where the murder case of Tamta Liparteliani will be discussed. He intends to demand life sentence at the strict regime prison for Breivik.

Mr. Liparteliani attended today`s hearing at the Oslo Court and, prior to it, he got familiarized with the expertise conclusion and submitted the letter of his requests to teh court.

Natia Chkhetiani, another Georgian girl, who was with Tamta Liparteliani during the mass shooting on Utoya will also appear before the court. Natia underwent a course of psychological rehabilitation before arriving in Norway.

The trial of Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik continued on Thursday (May 10) with the court set to hear further post-mortem reports and witness accounts of the Utoeya massacre in which 69 mostly young people were killed.

Breivik killed 77 people in a single day on July 22 last year. He admits to carrying out a bombing in Oslo and going on a shooting rampage on Utoeya but denies criminal responsibility.

The part of the trial dealing with forensic reports started last week and is set to end on Friday (May 11).

During this part of the trial, the court will hear how each of the 69 people killed on the island died.

According to the coroner, the average age of the victims was 18. Sixty-seven people were shot, one drowned and one died in a fall.

A dummy is being used by the forensic scientists and coroner to point out the injuries that caused their deaths.

During the day, five witnesses will also give details of events on the island.

On Utoeya, Breivik shot most of his victims several times, often using the first shot to take down his target then following up with a shot to the head.

On Monday (May 14) the witness segment of the trial will start.

The Oslo court has decided that the testimonies of witnesses and injured will not be broadcast on television. The ban also includes the forensic expert witness statements.

The testimonies concerning the events on Utoeya will last until the beginning of June.
