MOSCOW (Sputnik) — An Oslo court on Tuesday started to hear the case taken by convicted mass shooter Anders Breivik against the Norwegian state for allegedly infringing his rights, local media reported.
On July 22, 2011, Breivik bombed a government building in Oslo, killing eight people. On the same day, he traveled to a Norwegian Labor Party youth camp dressed as a police officer. He fatally shot 69 people, most of whom were teenagers. Breivik's main motive for the attacks was to promote his far-right militant ideology.
The mass murderer was sentenced to 21 years in prison for the attacks – the maximum sentence allowed under Norwegian law.
