Norway mass killer Breivik takes case to European rights court

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 says, 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.

It comes after Norway’s highest court, the Supreme Court, today refused to hear his case.

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

Top court: mass murderer Breivik’s rights weren’t violated

Norway’s top court on Thursday rejected an appeal by mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, saying the country didn’t violate his human rights by isolating him in jail.

The Hoeyesterett court ruled there was “no basis” for a different conclusion than the one reached by the Borgarting Court of Appeal in January.

Breivik, serving a 21-year sentence for killing 77 people in a 2011 bomb-and-shooting rampage, had claimed his solitary confinement has deeply damaged him and made him even more radical in his neo-Nazi beliefs.

“At this point, there are no prospects for Breivik winning an appeal in the Supreme Court,” the Hoeyesterett said in a statement. The appeal committee added that Breivik “still represents an unusually high risk of (committing) very serious events.”

His defense lawyer lawyer Oystein Storrvikk told Norwegian news agency NTB that they would appeal to the European Court of Human

Mass killer Anders Breivik claimed human rights violation

Norway has not violated mass killer Anders Breivik’s human rights, an appeal court has ruled.

Breivik claimed he had been abused for being placed in near-isolation in a three-room cell since he was jailed for massacring 77 people in 2011.

The Borgarting appeals court overturned a 2016 verdict by a lower Oslo court that his isolation amounted to “inhuman and degrading treatment” under the European Convention on Human Rights.

“The Borgarting Court of Appeal has determined that Anders Behring Breivik is not, and has not been subjected to torture or inhuman or degrading treatment,” the court said in a statement.

Strict conditions for Breivik, who has no contact with other inmates and has not repented for the attacks, were justified because there was a “high risk” that he would use violence in future and because other prisoners might attack him, it said

Breivik’s lawyer Oeystein Storrvik expressed surprise at the verdict and said he would

Breivik, an anti-Muslim neo-Nazi, massacred 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.

“The Borgarting Court of Appeal has determined that Anders Behring Breivik is not, and has not been, subjected to torture or inhuman or degrading treatment,” the court said in a statement.

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.
