Norway prison hiring ‘buddies’ for killer Breivik
Oslo: Norwegian prison authorities have reportedly planned to hire people to stop mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, accused of killing 77 people in a shooting and bombing rampage, getting lonely.
The prison authorities will pay volunteers up to GBP 20 an hour to play chess and other games with Breivik.
Breivik has been locked in solitary confinement in a maximum security jail after inmates vowed to murder him, The Sun reports.
The 33-year-old right wing extremist, who attacked a government building in Oslo and went on a shooting rampage on Utoeya island, claims that his actions were “necessary” to stop immigration.
Meanwhile, the Oslo trial heard that he had taken steroid ephedrine, caffeine and aspirin before his rampage.
Breivik reportedly took 50 percent more than the normal ECA stack dose authorised in the European Union only a few hours before his attacks.
