The police did not want to question him. He did not wish to speak to specialists assessing his mental health, and he did not waive his duty of confidentiality to the health service.

It’s very strict, says Christian Hadlo, police prosecutor at the Oslo Police District.

– No doubt it makes our job harder. We did not get the information. I would like to see us have more access to this kind of case, Hadlow tells NRK.

He thinks one should consider whether the police should have access to medical history in such serious cases.

Important history

One of the police hypotheses was that Mathapur was mentally ill and criminally incompetent.

It would be difficult to continue on that track, if the purpose did not eliminate the duty of confidentiality.

– I understand this is important information. Most people should know that they can safely talk to the health service. But when it comes to murder and terrorism – maybe should have been approached? Hadlow said.

Psychiatrist Randi Rosenqvist explains why it’s important for police to gain insight into NRK’s ​​previous health history.

– It is important to see how other experts previously described the soul to the target and what signs he had. Rosenquist says a history is needed to understand how severe a person’s mental illness is.

Experts can gain insight

At the same time, it is up to experts to extract information from the health service, even if the police cannot access it.

Specialists can apply to access medical history, says Rosenquist.

But only if they themselves contact the institution or hospital where the person is admitted. There is no overview of which individuals have previously received treatment.

Therefore, professionals must determine for themselves whether a person has received treatment.

– One should search for information, yes, but if the objective is to bid one’s life in Oslo, one has not seen Tromsø. Rosenqvist says it is unlikely he received treatment at addresses other than those associated with the auction.

These are the experts

Experts have also been appointed to assess the mental health of Janiyar Madhapur.

Synne Sørheim, Knut-Petter Sætre Langlo and Pål Grøndahl, head doctor and specialist in psychiatry, will find out whether Matapour is criminally competent or not.
