Commander Breivik’s visitor ban was lifted in December 2013. His communication is still heavily censored and subsequently he hasn’t been able to ask many people to come visit him.
In order to visit a form needs to be filled out, which the prison might be able to provide. Breivik should have been moved back to Ila fengsel in September.
Breivik has delayed the start of his hunger strike, the exact reason of which is as of yet unknown.
Based on the available information he is still restricted to half an hour of human contact a week.
In comparison, other Norwegian prisoners in solitary confinement are allowed 8 hours of human contact a week, and this punishment (solitary confinement is primarily used as a punishment) generally lasts for 1 or 2 weeks.
I have a few educated guesses as to the reason of the delay:
1. Breivik is likely waiting to reach a psychological breaking point, as he may be force-fed after he has starved himself to the point of inflicting brain damage on himself.
2. Some criticism has been published as to the humanity of his treatment. Psychologically it may strengthen him to know that it’s recognized that he’s the most strictly isolated prisoner in Western Europe.
3. There’s the prospect of increased human contact if he’s allowed to be interviewed by researchers of far-right ideologies.
4. Breivik is aware that people who write him are being intimidated by the police, so he understands the reason for a sharp decrease in the number of letters from supporters he’s receiving. Some people may have increased the frequency at which they write him in the understanding that fewer people write Breivik and that he’d respond (more frequently) if it wasn’t for the prison censorship of outgoing mail.
5. The prison may have increased his living conditions as a result of criticism by several experts that his treatment equates torture. As per Norwegian guidelines the prison must compensate for his lack of human contact by providing alternative forms of entertainment.
As his living standards are expected to decrease when he’s returned to Ila fengsel, sometime in September / October, this may be a likely time for a hunger strike to begin.
News broke today that a 42 page transcript was stolen which contained one of the interrogations of Commander Breivik. There were several leaks to the press so this seems to be one of the many cases of police corruption in Norway.
In late 2013 Breivik wrote a letter to Lars Gule. It’s a short handwritten letter where he asks Gule to drop by and discuss politics. He wrote other political experts with the same request. Quite possibly he views this as a way to circumvent the strict isolation regime. A translation is available on the Breivik Archive.
Lars Gule and Øystein Sørensen have accepted the invitation and are planning to interview Breivik in May.
A Norwegian translation of the chapter summaries of 2083 is available.
I have a German and Russian machine-translation as well, but they need to be fixed up. If anyone is interested in doing this, which will take about 8 hours, send me a PM and I’ll hand you the files and instructions.
In a recent comment to Aftenposten Breivik’s laywer, Tord Jordet, has stated that Breivik’s isolation is a clear human rights violation and that Breivik is still in the process of taking legal action.
Aftenposten editor, Espen Egil Hansen, has spoken out as well. He points out, as I’ve pointed out in the past, that there was a common agreement that 7/22 shouldn’t change Norway. The level of isolation Breivik is exposed to is unprecedented however, and violates several international guidelines regarding the humane treatment of prisoners. This implies that Norway has changed.
Countries with post-revolutionary constitutions, like the USA, clearly state that prisoners must be treated humanely. This in the knowledge that totalitarian governments will use inhumane treatment to discourage political dissent.
Of course Norway has been changed by Multiculturalism and will continue to change for the worse. More and more Europeans radicalize every day and there will come a time when even outright torture won’t stop them from resisting their genocide.
Two survivors of the heroic 7/22 attacks picked Swedish artist Jonas Dahlberg to design two memorials to honor the historic event.
The first memorial ‘Memory Wound’ will be excavated on the peninsular of Sørbråten, which juts out into the Tyrifjorden lake. It faces the island of Utøya where Commander Breivik executed 69 traitors.
Dahlberg proposed cutting a one-thousand cubic meter slice through the rock that sits at he end of the peninsular, leaving a scar on the landscape that will serve as a permanent memorial.
I doubt it’ll be very impressive as it’ll look like an abandoned roadway project. I dub it ‘Road to Nowhere’ for now. If it does look impressive once finished it can symbolize the real atrocity, the scar left by 60 years of Multiculturalism.
The rubble of the excavation will be transported to Oslo where it will be used to construct a walkway and an amphitheater that is to be named ‘Time and Movement’. It’s such a retarded name that there’s no real reason to rename it.
Hopefully I’ll live to see the day that a statue of Anders Behring Breivik is erected on Utøya.
The police rejected Breivik’s maltreatment complaint which was to be expected. It’s not against Norwegian law to limit a prisoner to less than 1 hour of human contact a week.
Norway is violating international treaties it signed but the only way for those treaties to be enforced is politically.
The police did a brief investigation which might put a halt to the painful handcuffing, assuming they asked questions about that particular practice.
