Norway’s mass murderer Breivik inspires French extremists

OSLO, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) — Terror experts said it is worrying that French extremists claimed to be inspired by Norway’s Anders Behring Breivik who killed 77 people in 2011, newspaper Aftenposten reported Sunday.

In three different cases, the Norwegian far-right extremist’s French supporters have attacked or threatened Muslim population, the report said.

“This is startling and worrying,” terror researcher Thomas Hegghammer at the Norwegian Defense Research Institute (FFI) told Aftenposten.

“There have been relatively few Breivik-inspired events in Western Europe since 2011, so such accumulation of cases will be unusual,” says Hegghammer, adding that the trend shows current mobilization on the outermost French right side.

“It also shows that we must not underestimate Breivik’s influence. He can make comeback as inspirational source under certain circumstances,” he said.

The last known example of groups inspired by the Norwegian terrorist is a group called the Defense Command of the French People and the Motherland (CDPPF). They have

Norway’s mass murderer Breivik changes his name: report

OSLO, June 9 (Xinhua) — Norway’s mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik has changed his name to Fjotolf Hansen, local newspaper Verdens Gang reported Friday.

Breivik, who killed 77 people in attacks in 2011, is now known as Fjotolf Hansen in the National Registry and his lawyer, Oystein Storrvik, has confirmed the change, according to Verdens Gang.

But Storrvik said he did not want to disclose why and when the name was changed.

On Thursday, Norway’s Supreme Court announced it will not process Breivik’s appeal on his prison conditions, saying no parts of his appeal have opportunities to give different outcome than what the appeals court came to.

Storrvik said he would appeal the case as soon as possible to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

The appeals court ruled in March that the Norwegian government had not violated the human rights of the convicted mass murderer by holding him in isolation in prison.

Norway mass-murderer Anders Breivik changes name

Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, who murdered 77 people in 2011, has officially changed his name to Fjotolf Hansen, his lawyer says.

On Friday Oeystein Storrvik declined to give Breivik’s reasons for adopting Hansen, one of Norway’s most common surnames, or the extremely rare Fjotolf.

“He told me some reasons but I don’t want to talk about what he told me,” Mr Storrvik told Reuters, confirming Norwegian media reports of the name change.

In Norway, citizens can freely change their names in the official register but are not allowed to pick words that are likely to cause offence to others or harm the individual. It was unclear when he made the change.

On Thursday, the Norwegian Supreme Court said it would not consider an appeal lodged by Breivik protesting against his prison conditions.

The anti-Muslim, far-right extremist killed 77 people in Norway’s worst peacetime atrocity in July 2011.

He killed eight with a bomb in

Norway’s top court rejects mass murderer Breivik’s appeal

Neo-Nazi mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in 2011, will take his case over his “inhumane” prison conditions to the European Court of Human Rights, his lawyer said yesterday after exhausting all legal options in Norway.

Breivik, who for safety reasons has been held apart from other inmates since his arrest in 2011, has complained about his lengthy isolation. He wants the Norwegian state to be found guilty of violating the European Convention on Human Rights, which prohibits “inhumane” and “degrading” treatment. But Norway’s highest court, the Supreme Court, yesterday refused to hear his case.

“None of the elements in the Breivik appeal have any chance of winning,” the court said in a statement.

“Neither does the case raise any questions about the interpretation of the European Convention that haven’t already been sufficiently clarified by the practices of the European Court of Human Rights,” it added.

Breivik’s lawyer argued that his

Norway Supreme Court turns down mass murderer Breivik’s appeal


OSLO The Norwegian Supreme Court will not take up an appeal lodged by Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik protesting against his prison conditions, the court said on Thursday.

Breivik was seeking to overturn a March decision by a Norwegian appeals court that ruled that his near-isolation in a three-room cell respected human rights.

The anti-Muslim far-right extremist killed 77 people in Norway’s worst peacetime atrocity in July 2011. He killed eight with a bomb in Oslo and then gunned down 69, many of them teenagers, at a youth meeting of the then-ruling Labour Party.

His appeal had raised dismay, and some laughter, among Norwegians taken aback by Breivik’s complaints of cold coffee and microwaved meals he said were “worse than waterboarding”.

“The Supreme Court’s appeal commission has unanimously decided on June 8, 2017 to not

Norway: Court rules mass murderer’s rights not violated

OSLO, Norway

A Norwegian court on Wednesday overturned a previous verdict that Norway had violated the human rights of a convicted mass murderer.

“The court has come to the conclusion that Anders Behring Breivik is not, and has not, been subjected to torture or inhumane or degrading treatment,” the Oslo court said in its decision.

The verdict said there were “no clear indications that Breivik has been subjected to isolation damage during his prison sentence.”

“The court is of the opinion that there is a high risk that Breivik will resort to violence in the future,” it added.

In July 22, 2011, Anders Breivik — a radical conservative — carried out a bomb attack in Oslo, Norway. He then slaughtered students on Utoya Island located near Oslo. In total, 77 people died and more than 200 others were wounded.

The victims include Gizem Dogan, a 17-year-old woman of Turkish descent.

Norway did not violate mass killer Breivik’s human rights, court finds

The ruling overturned a 2016 verdict by a lower court that Breivik’s near-isolation amounted to “inhuman and degrading treatment” under the European Convention on Human Rights.

The appeals court said that the strict conditions were justified because “there is a high risk that Breivik will resort to violence in the future”.

It said the conditions were also necessary for his own safety, as other prisoners might attack him.

MASS MURDERER GIVES NAZI SALUTE IN COURT

The 38-year-old neo-Nazi is currently serving a 21-year-prison sentence for massacring 77 people in July 2011.

In the attack Breivik disguised himself as a police officer and gunned down 69 people, mostly teenagers, at a Labour Party youth camp on the island of Utoya.

Court: Norway didn’t violate rights of mass murderer Breivik

Norway did not violate the human rights of mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik by isolating him in jail, an appeals court ruled Wednesday, overturning a lower court ruling from last year.

The Borgarting Court of Appeal says Breivik, who is serving a 21-year sentence for killing 77 people in a 2011 bomb-and-shooting rampage, “has not been subjected to torture or inhuman or degrading treatment.” It said the conditions for his incarceration were “not in violation” of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Incarceration in a high-security prison “entails an element of suffering and humiliation,” the court said. “However such special safety measures may be required. This particularly applies to some dangerous prisoners to prevent, for instance, escape, violence or prison disturbances.”

“Isolation from other inmates coupled with tight control are examples of such security measures,” the court said.

Breivik had sued the Norwegian government, saying his solitary confinement, frequent strip searches and
