Good Essays
In Oslo, Norway’s worst mass killer, Anders Behring Breivik, is suing the Norwegian state for allegedly violating his rights during his incarceration. Breivik killed 77 people in a shooting and bombing attack in July 2011. His case focuses on the complaint that he is isolated from other inmates and the outside world. The state’s legal team argues that the circumstances are appropriate and fitting to the crime. Breivik was sentenced to 21 years in prison in 2012. Appearing in court on Tuesday, March, 15th, 2016, Breivik was dressed in a black suit and gold tie and he made the Nazi salute after his handcuffs were removed. Judge Helen Andenaes Sekulic instructed Breivik not to repeat the gesture when he returns to court on Wednesday.
