Norwegian mass killer complains over jail conditions
London: Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik has written a letter to the Norwegian prison complaining that the conditions in jail are ‘violating his human rights’.
According to Breivik’s lawyer, his client claimed that restricted access to a computer and censoring his correspondence ‘violates his freedom of speech.’
“His freedom of speech is being violated. Being deprived of this freedom of expression breaches the constitution and human rights,” the Daily Mail quoted Tord Jordet, as saying.
Jordet said that after his prison sentence was handed down on August 24, Breivik has in practice been denied access to the computer, which was provided for him before the court ruling.
The 33-year-old right wing extremist was convicted of killing 77 people in a shooting and bombing rampage in Oslo in July last year.
According to the paper, Breivik`s activities in prison were restricted after Norwegian paper Verdens Gang exposed his correspondence with high-ranking right-wing extremists this summer.
The letters asked for help to ‘continue the fight’ and establish a new extremist network he called the Conservative Revolutionary Movement.
