Anders Breivik and Human Rights….

I refer you to the BBC news on Anders Breivik’s human rights case.

Anders Breivik, the mass killer, accuses the Norwegian government of breaching two clauses of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). One of the clauses guarantees the right to respect for “private and family life” and “correspondence”, while the other prohibits “inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment”.

He also complains of poorly decorated cell with no view, cold coffee and not enough butter for bread. Have a look at his prison cell, which looks like more like a metropolitan studio apartment with TV and computer.

Breivik sentenced for 21 years

Norway mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has been given the maximum sentence of 21 years under Norwegian law.

I am not convinced this maximum sentence is adequate; hardly 3 months sentence for each person he murdered on the day.  But even if Breivik was sentenced for 100 years, it will not compensate for 77 young Norwegian lives.

Let us hope Norway can put this behind and move ahead.

Norway Bombing and Shootings

My heartfelt condolences to the relatives, friends and others directly affected by Norway bombing and shooting massacre happened on 22nd July 2011 (Friday).  From latest news, at least 76 people lost their lives, in two separate attacks which targeted Norway’s Labour Party Government and supporters. 

 Apparently the lone(?) attacker, Anders Behring Breivik, had meticulously planned this in detail.  He had even uploaded videos, emails and his theory on Internet, days before the carnage.  Anders Breivik was brought in to a closed court-room session today and is now send to custody for eight weeks.

 What was the motive behind this gruesome attack?  Uploaded “Manifesto” of 1518 pages and Breivik’s post-attack comments point to his extreme right-wing ideas against Muslims and Marxists; and the straight-immediate targets being anyone supporting them – hence the Labour Party, its supporters and Government. 

 Beware that Breivik is not against just Muslim terrorists – he is against the race itself.  What else can we expect from right-wing extremists?!  If supporting the minorities and oppressed is a crime, then the communists and Marxists all over world are doing that, always, everyday.

 We will have to wait for weeks and months to clearly understand who else are behind this.  It is very hard to believe that one single person planned and executed all this by himself.  There is no doubt that Breivik is not the only person in this world with his extreme views.  Hope Norway’s investigators catch hold of all those who are responsible for this criminal act.
