Norway massacre gunman Anders Breivik starts POLITICS course at Oslo university after milking prison rules giving inmates the right to higher education
Anders Behring Breivik, who massacred 77 fellow Norwegians in 2011, is taking advantage of rules giving prison inmates rights to higher education by starting a politics course at university.
Anders Behring Breivik has been given a place on a politics course at university.
The fanatic, who massacred 77 fellow Norwegians in 2011, is taking advantage of rules giving prison inmates rights to higher education.
Breivik, right, will have to study independently in his cell. Two years ago, the University of Oslo rejected the 36-year-old’s application because his qualifications were deemed insufficient.
He has been studying since starting his 21-year sentence in 2012 and his grades have now reached the expected level.
Breivik took an online course in business but he had not completed secondary education before he launched his solo attacks. He was motivated by far-Right beliefs.
The submission stirred a debate in Norway over whether someone convicted of such a horrific crime should be considered for higher education.
Norway has a rehabilitation-focused justice system aimed at helping inmates prepare for life after they get out, which includes giving them the right to pursue higher education. Since his 2012 conviction, Breivik has been studying in jail.
‘He then didn’t meet the admission requirements. Now his grades live up to what is expected,’ university spokeswoman Marina Tofting said.
NOTE: His ”far-right” beliefs fall firmly within traditional socialist parameters.
