Breivik ruling appealed
HELSINKI: Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in a bombing and shooting rampage in 2011, is returning to court this week as the government has appealed against a ruling that his isolation in prison breaches the European Convention on Human Rights.
The right-wing extremist, 37, who admitted to the killings that Prime Minister Erna Solberg called “one of the darkest days in Norwegian history”, was convicted of mass murder and terrorism in 2012 and given a 21-year prison sentence that can be extended for as long as he’s deemed dangerous.
Legal experts say he will likely be locked up for life. – AP
