NORWEGIAN mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik has 
complained that he is being 
held in inhumane conditions and is being denied freedom of expression.

His lawyer, Tord Jordet, says Breivik, who is serving a 21-year sentence for killing 77 people, wrote in a letter to prison officials that he has not been given the possibility of expressing political opinions and is not allowed to read every letter 
addressed to him in the prison.

Prison officials were not available for comment yesterday.

The 33-year-old right-wing extremist was found sane during a lengthy trial that ended in August with the Oslo District Court finding him guilty of terrorism and premeditated murder for the 22 July, 2011, attacks.

Breivik’s sentence can be 
extended for as long as he is 
considered a danger to society.
