Trying to Forget Breivik: One Year After the Norway Massacre
The events in Aurora, Colorado appear to echo the meticulously planned crime that devastated Oslo, Norway almost a year before. The Norwegians are still trying to figure out how to deal with the legacy of that mass murder.

Norway Remembers Victims On Anniversary of Attacks
Thousands Gather on Utoya Island and in Oslo to Commemorate Bombing, Shooting Spree That Left 77 Dead
July 22, 2012

OSLO—Thousands gathered Sunday in two locations that have become sacred ground in Norway to commemorate the anniversary of the worst terror attack the nation has witnessed on home soil.
About 1,500 victims and relatives visited Utoya Island to remember those killed by right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik on July 22, 2011, during a summer youth camp. At a key point in the ceremony, mothers, fathers and siblings of victims stood on a beach and slipped floating lanterns into the waves of Tyrifjorden lake, which surrounds the heart-shaped island.

Thousands more assembled in the streets of Oslo, 25 miles to the southeast, placing flowers outside Oslo Cathedral. Dignitaries, including Norway's king and queen, the prime minister and the leader of the Labor Party youth, the group Mr. Breivik targeted, attended a wreath-laying ceremony that was tightly policed

Norwegian commission criticizes police response to far-right fanatic’s bomb and gun massacre
August 13, 2012

 ::snipping2::
While noting that the attacks “may be the most shocking and incomprehensible acts ever experienced in Norway,” the 500-page report said the bombing “could have been prevented” if already adopted security measures had been implemented more effectively.

Breivik was able to park a van with a fertilizer bomb just outside the high-rise before he drove another car to the Labor Party’s youth camp on Utoya, unhindered.

The report said that a car bomb scenario “at the government complex and several coordinated attacks have been recurring scenarios in threat assessments as well as for safety analyses and exercise scenarios for many years.”

The police response was also slowed down by a series of blunders, including flaws in communication systems and the breakdown of an overloaded boat carrying a police anti-terror unit. Meanwhile, Norway’s only police helicopter was left unused, its crew on vacation. Breivik’s shooting spree lasted for more than one hour before he surrendered to police.

The report said a faster police response could have stopped Breivik’s shooting spree earlier, but recognized that “hardly anyone could have imagined” the attack on Utoya. “Sadly, however, after repeated school massacres in other countries, an armed desperado who shoots adolescents is indeed conceivable — also in Norway,” it said.

Norway police chief resigns after harsh criticism against response to bomb and gun massacre
August 18, 2012

OSLO, Norway — Norway’s chief of police has stepped down following scathing criticism of the police’s bungled response to a bomb and gun massacre that left 77 dead last year.

In a statement Friday, Oystein Maeland said he had quit his job with immediate effect because he felt he no longer had the backing of the government.

http://edition.cnn.com/2012/08/18/world/europe/czech-arrest/index.html
Suspected Breivik sympathizer arrested, arms seized in Czech Republic
August 19, 2012

(CNN) -- Czech authorities announced Saturday that they have arrested a 29-year-old man who expressed admiration for Anders Behring Breivik, the self-declared ultranationalist who has admitted killing 77 people in Norway last summer.

Video broadcast on Saturday by CT24, a public broadcast station in the Czech Republic, showed the handcuffed suspect flanked by police. Dressed in a short-sleeved shirt, the unidentified man appears to be smiling during much of the videotaped walk.

Tomas Tuhy, a regional director of the Czech Republic Police, said authorities confiscated "police or prisoner" uniforms during their search of the suspect's apartment, as well as some police equipment. Pictures published on CT24's website showed explosive detonators, firearms, ammunition, and what appears to be a police uniform, that were seized as part of the investigation.

The man from Ostrava, the Czech Republic's third largest city located in the eastern part of the country near the Polish border, may have intended to pass himself off as a policeman when waging an attack, police said, as reported by the Czech News Agency.

Anders Breivik should be declared sane, majority of Norwegians believe
Poll by Norway's state broadcaster shows three-quarters want Utøya island killer sent to prison, not secure psychiatric unit

August 23, 2012

The majority of Norwegians want the court to declare Anders Breivik sane when it delivers its verdict on Friday – coinciding with the wishes of the killer.

The Oslo district court will announce whether Breivik, who has admitted murdering 77 people in a killing spree on 22 July last year, should be held responsible and imprisoned for his crimes or whether he is insane and should be sent to a secure psychiatric institution for the rest of his life.

A survey conducted by public broadcaster NRK shows three in four Norwegians believe Breivik should be sent to prison. One in 10 believed the perpetrator of Norway's worst peacetime massacre could not be considered responsible for his actions.

Breivik has said if the court finds him insane it would be "a "fate worse than death". The credibility of his rightwing ideology and claim to be protecting Norway from a Muslim takeover would be dismissed as the rantings of a madman.

Norway court: Anders Breivik sane, going to prison
August 24, 2012

(AP) OSLO, Norway - A Norwegian court sentenced Anders Behring Breivik to prison on Friday, denying prosecutors the insanity ruling they hoped would show that his massacre of 77 people was the work of a madman, not part of an anti-Muslim crusade.

Breivik smiled with apparent satisfaction when Judge Wenche Elisabeth Arntzen read the ruling, declaring him sane enough to be held criminally responsible and sentencing him to "preventive detention," which means it is unlikely he will ever be released.

The sentence brings a form of closure to Norway, which was shaken to its core by the bomb and gun attacks on July 22, 2011, because Breivik's lawyers said before the ruling that he would not appeal any ruling that did not declare him insane.

But it also means Breivik got what he wanted: a ruling that paints him as a political terrorist instead of a psychotic mass murderer. Since his arrest, Breivik has said the attacks were meant to draw attention to his extreme right-wing ideology and to inspire a multi-decade uprising by "militant nationalists" across Europe.

Breivik Won't Appeal Norway Massacre Sentence
August 24, 2012

 Accepting a sentence that could keep him imprisoned for life, Anders Behring Breivik regretted not killing more people in a bomb and gun massacre that left 77 people dead.

Breivik's gruesome and defiant statement Friday marked the end of a legal process that has haunted Norway for 13 months.

Prosecutors said they, too, would not appeal the ruling by Oslo's district court, which declared the right-wing extremist sane enough to be held criminally responsible for attacks "unparalleled in Norwegian history."

"Since I don't recognize the authority of the court I cannot legitimize the Oslo district court by accepting the verdict," Breivik said. "At the same time I cannot appeal the verdict, because by appealing it I would legitimize the court."

Then, Breivik said he wanted to issue an apology, but it wasn't for the victims, most of them teenagers gunned down in one of the worst peacetime shooting massacres in modern history.

"I wish to apologize to all militant nationalists that I wasn't able to execute more," Breivik said.

No clear winners in trial of Anders Behring Breivik

Breivik got 21 years, but was found sane as he wanted. Prosecutors saw him jailed, but mishandled the psychiatric findings. And now the prime minister is feeling heat for security's slow response.

Breivik's emails published in new book
September 3, 2012

A NORWEGIAN publisher has released a book of some of Anders Behring Breivik's email correspondence that show how he prepared for his July 2011 attacks which killed 77 people.

The correspondence supports an Oslo court verdict last month that presumed Breivik sane, the book's author Kjetil Stormark said.

Stormark, a journalist who has already published a book on the attacks that shook the Scandinavian nation, has gone through more than 7000 emails from four accounts used by the 33-year-old rightwing extremist before the massacre.
 ::snipping2::
The book, entitled The Private Emails of a Mass Killer, is based on correspondence obtained by hackers who accessed Breivik's accounts after the attacks and then gave them to Stormark so he would give them to police, which he did before writing his book.

Among the revelations are how Breivik raised money and acquired the equipment necessary for his attacks.
 ::snipping2::
Breivik's lawyers had protested against the publication of the book, saying it was a violation of his right to privacy.

Life in Prison Suite Doesn’t Agree With a Mass Killer
November 9, 2012

Mr. Breivik, the Norwegian extremist convicted of the coldly premeditated murders of 77 people in 2011, is serving a 21-year sentence in a maximum-security prison outside Oslo. He is not satisfied with the accommodations, though: his three-cell suite with a television and exercise equipment, lodgings commensurate with Norway’s typically humane treatment of its convicts.

Addressing penal officials in a 27-page letter obtained by the Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang and confirmed by his lawyer, Mr. Breivik bemoaned the “800” strip searches he has undergone, for instance. Not one of them has shown him to be holding an object “between the buttocks,” he noted.

He would enjoy more social interaction, according to the letter, which says he is alone with his thoughts for “23 hours and 55 minutes” on a typical day and speaks only with his guards.

“Such treatment isn’t human,” said a lawyer for Mr. Breivik, Tord Jordet, according to Agence France-Presse.

Mr. Breivik is denied a computer or Internet access to prevent him from spreading his ideology of racial hatred, officials have said.

He expressed many other concerns in his letter, many of them prosaic. He must be supervised while shaving and brushing his teeth, he complained, and because of the “mental strain” this causes he is forced to limit those activities to once a week. Nor is he permitted to keep hydrating skin cream in his quarters, which are drab and without a view, he wrote. Switches for his lights and television are outside his suite of cells, obliging him to summon guards to turn them on and off.

Mr. Breivik dislikes handcuffs, too, because the steel edges cut into his wrists, and he dreads putting them on for each trip outside his cell, Verdens Gang reported. Without a thermos, his coffee frequently goes cold, according to news media reports.

Furthermore, he wrote, his phone calls and mail are unfairly censored. “His freedom of speech is being violated,” Mr. Jordet said.

Only correspondence from “New Testament Christians and other people who do not like me” has reached him in recent months, Mr. Breivik wrote.

The Danger of the Lone-Wolf Terrorist
February 27, 2013

Some say that a new era in terrorism is emerging, with the “lone wolf” terrorist front and center. From Anders Breivik in Norway, who murdered scores of young people in a bombing and mass-shooting attack, to Nidal Malik Hasan in the United States, who killed many of his fellow soldiers after opening fire at a military base, lone wolves have recently demonstrated that they can be as dangerous as organized terrorist groups.

Is this a new threat the nation and the world should fret over? Jeffrey D. Simon is a terror expert with 25 years’ experience in the field, including a stint at the Rand Corp. He addresses the issue in his new book, Lone Wolf Terrorism: Understanding the Growing Threat. Battleland conducted this email chat with him Monday.

Musical Inspired by Norway Massacre to Open in U.K.
March 28, 2013

A new musical stage show inspired by the atrocities carried out by Norwegian mass-murderer Anders Breivik is to open in the U.K. this summer.

David Greig wrote The Events to explore why certain societies respond differently to tragedies. The acclaimed Scottish playwright visited Utøya Island and Oslo three months after lone gunman Breivik slaughtered 77 people there on July 22, 2011.
“I was most interested in how Norwegian society was feeling,” Greig told the Guardian. “Oslo is not a huge city and everybody pretty much knows everybody else, so almost everyone we spoke to had been affected.

“Some people asked us not to write or talk about Breivik. I am not at all certain whether we give him a victory by ignoring him or trying to understand him. That is what I wanted to question.”

The Events, which opens at Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre, will be set in Scotland and centers on a female character who is coping with the aftermath of a tragedy, according to Global Post. Breivik will not be mentioned by name at any point.

Mass Murderer Breivik Rejects Inheritance
The Norwegian government would have used the money to compensate the families of Anders Breivik's 77 victims.
June 11, 2013

Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has renounced an inheritance from his mother to avoid it going to the state which wants to compensate his victims' families, his lawyer said.

"It's surely one of the reasons behind his decision," lawyer Tor Jordet said, confirming a tabloid report which revealed Breivik's decision.

The government would have claimed the money to pay damages awarded to the families of his 77 victims by the Oslo court that sentenced Breivik to 21 years in jail in August last year.

During his trial, it emerged that Breivik, 34, had cheated to avoid paying income taxes to a state that he vehemently opposed.

His mother died in March. The exact amount of the inheritance is not known but her apartment was put up for sale on Tuesday for around 3.7 million kroner (£412,903).

Mr Jordet said the right-wing extremist had rejected his share of the inheritance before his mother died. It is expected to go to Breivik's half-sister and to charity.

Breivik killed 69 people, mostly teenagers, in a gun rampage at a Labour party youth camp on July 22, 2011, after setting off a massive bomb outside the main government building in Oslo, killing eight.

Cold killer Breivik said sorry to mother for ruining her life

(Reuters) - Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, who refused to show remorse for killing 77 people in 2011, hugged his mother and apologized for ruining her life before she died of cancer this year, according to a new biography.

"The Mother", based on hours of conversations with Wenche Behring Breivik by journalist Marit Christensen and published on Thursday, says she once described herself as the world's "saddest mother" who both hated and loved her son.

She had no inkling that he was planning the attacks on July 22, 2011, cooking him a dinner of spaghetti that got cold as she waited in vain for his return and watched the news of bombings and shootings by an unknown killer.

She broke down in tears when the police came to her house that night to say Anders Breivik was to blame for the massacre - a bombing in Oslo that killed 8 and a shooting rampage on a nearby island that killed 69, many of them teenagers.

Breivik, a right-wing anti-Islamic fanatic now aged 34, is serving Norway's maximum sentence in jail for the attacks, which were aimed at the Labour-led government and its youth wing.

A few days before Wenche Breivik died of cancer in March, she was taken by ambulance to visit her son in jail.

SORRY

Glass divided them on previous visits but this time Anders Breivik was allowed out. Still in handcuffs, he put his arms over and around his mother in a hug. "Sorry that I have ruined your life," he whispered, the book said.

By contrast, Breivik showed no compassion for his victims, saying in court that he would do it all over again if he had the chance. His father, a retired Norwegian diplomat, said after the killings that he wished Anders had never been born.

"I hate him," Wenche Breivik said of her son after days spent recovering from the shock of the killings in a psychiatric hospital, the book says. Afterwards, she felt guilt and feared that she could be killed in a revenge attack.
 
A year after the killings she considered - but did not make - an appeal, to say: "Dear fellow citizens, he who caused the tragedy also struck me. If I go out, someone will shoot me! I am the saddest mother in the world today."

"(I) have been terribly sad and cried a lot. In addition to the grief of losing a son the sense of guilt weighs heavily on me. It would be easier to bear if he was dead ... his punishment is also my punishment."

Norwegian court rules mass killer Breivik's rights violated
April 20, 2016

STOCKHOLM
A Norwegian court has ruled that right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik's human rights have been violated during his imprisonment for terrorism and mass murder.

The Oslo district court side says the prison conditions breached an article in the European Convention on Human Rights prohibiting inhuman and degrading treatment.

The court dismissed Breivik's claim that the government had also violated his right to respect for private and family life.
