Norway Government Rejects Breivik’s Torture Accusations

Breivik’s lawsuit against Norwegian government goes to court in the end of March. The 22 July terror convict claims his prison conditions is not in accordance with the obligations in the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).

Breivik’s lawyer writes to NRK that their accusations are based on intrusive control measures, daily nude searchings and frequent body examination with metal detector.

He also writes that Breivik was subjected to an extensive isolation and strict letter control. Visits from non-professional actors including his mom are limited to five minute.

Norwegian Government: He Has Good Conditions

The Norwegian government denies that Anders Behring Breivik is subjected to human rights violations, showing among other things that the terrorist has access to a wider walking area, and wash clothes and cook on his own.

It is also noted that Breivik is not socially isolated. He has three rooms, a study cell and a training cell, and that he can move freely between them.

NRK had previously announced that the Oslo District Court did not allow broadcasting of Breivik’s explanation, partly because the court fears that terrorist will send coded messages to his supporters .

Anders Behring Breivik is serving a sentence of 21 years detention, with a minimum term of 10 years after the bombing of the government building and mass murder of  a total of 77 people  on 22 July 2011.
