Norway to Appeal the Verdict in Breivik “Human Rights” Case

Last week Breivik partly won his trial against the Norwegian government. Now the minister of justice  Anders Anundsen (FrP) asked the attorney general to make an appeal.The reason behind it, as was announced in the ministry’s statement, is simply that the government does not regard the conditions of Breivik being “inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment”. Attorney general Marius Emberland refused to give any further comments on the topic, writes VG.

The appeal has not yet been designed, but it will be submitted to the court within the deadline for appeal, which is one month after the judgment was announced to state. The verdict was pronounced on the April, 22th.

Last week the Oslo District Court concluded that the state has violated mass murderer’s human rights on the articles 3 and 8 of the European Human Rights Convention, namely :

Article 3: No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

Article 8: Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondence.

The court ruled that the state must pay Breivik legal costs of 331 000 NOK (40 700 USD).
