Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik wants to end his lockdown. He believes that this violates the European Convention on Human Rights. This was reported on August 26 by the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten.
According to the publication, Breivik, who is being held in solitary confinement, plans to go to court if he is not immediately commuted in this part of the sentence. The convict pointed to Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which states that no one shall be subjected to “torture” or “inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment.”
Earlier, on February 1, it was reported that the court of the province of Telemark in Norway decided to deny Breivik parole. The decision was unanimous.
Breivik spent half of his court term and was theoretically eligible for parole, but the psychiatrist who spoke at the trial concluded that he was still a danger to society.
The court concluded that the risk of violence by the defendant is as real today as it was when the custodial sentence was handed down in August 2012, and Breivik’s verbal assurances are worthless.
In July 2011, Breivik detonated a bomb in the government quarter of Oslo, and then shot employees and guests of the Norwegian Workers’ Party youth camp on the island of Utøya. Most of his 77 victims were teenagers – the youngest of them was only 14 years old. In July 2018, a monument was unveiled in Oslo to those who died at the hands of a criminal.
Breivik was sentenced to 21 years in prison with the possibility of an extension of the term of imprisonment. Subsequently, he repeatedly said that he organized the attacks to prevent the decline of Norwegian culture as part of the right to self-defense and the fight against multiculturalism.
In 2016, Breivik’s complaint against the state was tried in Skien Prison. He complained about the inhumane conditions in prison and the inability to communicate with people.
