Norway Murderer Who Killed 77 Wins Human Rights Case
A convicted mass killer in Norway has managed to win a human rights case after claiming that he wasn’t receiving fair treatment in prison.
Anders Behring Breivik is known as the right-wing extremist who killed 77 people in July 2011.
He first struck the capital of Oslo by detonating a car bomb which killed 8 people.
Later that day, he went on a shooting spree on the island of Utoya, killing dozens of teenagers at a summer camp.
Breivik now complains that he’s been subjected to “inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment,” even though he has been able to play video games, watch TV and work out there, Shepard Smith reported.
He says he is frequently made to undergo strip searches and handcuffing, and argues his solitary confinement for 22 to 23 hours a day is inhuman.
The court ruled in Breivik’s favor, saying that human rights represent “a fundamental value in a democratic society,” and must still be upheld for “terrorists and killers,” according to the BBC.
