Anders Breivik

Summary: The extremist that murdered over 70 people in Oslo, Norway, many of which were teenagers, has filed a lawsuit over his prison conditions.

Five years after first killing eight people with a bomb outside a government building in Oslo, Norway and then killing another 69 at a Labour Youth camp, rightwing extremist Anders Behring Breivik is suing for inhuman treatment. In a theatrical showing, Breivik used the Nazi salute to open his complaint.

The lawyer for Breivik, Oystein Storrvik, claims the lawsuit is about the isolation treatment in prison as being “inhuman” and was a necessary measure since Breivik will likely spend the rest of his life in prison. Storrvik explained, “This case is about something much more than what many people think, just a lawsuit brought to allow Breivik back into the spotlight to explain himself. This case is simply about his detention conditions for the rest of his life.”

Breivik is serving a maximum 21-year sentence for the murders but that sentence can be extended if he is still seen as a threat to society. During his original trial in 2012, Breivik made several Nazi-like salutes except with his right fist closed over his heart and then extending his arm.

In previous complaints, Breivik has said his prison conditions were “torture” under two clauses of the European convention on human rights. One clause prohibits “inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment” and the other clause guarantees the right of respect for “private and family life” and “correspondence.” His lawyer cited the frequent use of handcuffs and strip-searches but most importantly the isolation from the rest of the prison population and the outside world.

His mail is censored to stop an “extremist network” from being established and limit his visits to almost exclusively professionals. He was allowed to meet with his mother in 2013 before she died from cancer.



Currently Breivik has access to three cells – one each for living, studying, and exercise. He also has a television, computer and a game console. He can prepare his own food and do his own laundry if he wants.
