Breivik loses case

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

HOYESTERETT: Nor­way’s top court has dis­missed An­ders Breivik’s claim that soli­tary con­fine­ment is vi­o­lat­ing his hu­man rights.

The Hoyesterett Supreme Court ruled there was “no ba­sis” for a dif­fer­ent con­clu­sion than that reached by an ap­peal court in Jan­uary.

Breivik is serv­ing a 21-year sen­tence for the mur­der of 77 peo­ple in 2011.

His lawyer said he would ap­peal to the Euro­pean Court of Hu­man Rights.
