On Monday this week, the Oslo district court decided that the detention of Zaniar Matapour will be extended by four new weeks.

He was then present in court, but did not testify.

This was confirmed by police prosecutor Ingvild Myrvold to NRK on Monday.

Matapour has thus still not allowed himself to be questioned by the police.

The 43-year-old is charged with having committed murder and attempted murder with terrorist intent.

Matapour is currently being forcibly admitted for judicial observation at the Regional Security Post at Haukeland University Hospital.

One of the theories the police are working on is that the shooting was a hate crime aimed at gay people. The incident happened the night before the Pride parade in central Oslo.
