The lawyer for Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik, sentenced to 21 years in prison for killing 77 people in 2011, Lipstad the geirr began his political career by becoming a member of the city government of Oslo. Now Lippetal will be responsible for the development of industry and the management of municipal real estate, writes The Local.
“I was very surprised and at the same time very happy. This is a crucial area that also interests me. So when I received an offer I couldn’t refuse,” said the lawyer after his formal appointment.
Lipostat added that he intends to deal with the issues of integration and inclusion into society of Norwegians born abroad. “I wrote my first article about multiculturalism and integration when I was 18. Since then I never ceased to be interested in this topic. Looking forward to the start of work. Oslo is in that situation when we just need to more effectively implement integration policy,” said Lippetal.
22 July 2011 was the bloodiest in the history of Norway double attack. Then in the government quarter of Oslo and a youth camp of the Norwegian labour party on the island of Utoya took the lives of 77 people. The youngest victim was 14 years old.
Breivik was sent to prison in late August 2012, after receiving a 21-year sentence of imprisonment is the maximum possible, according to Norwegian law, punishment. Almost the whole judicial process was not clear whether he will sit in jail or sent to compulsory treatment, since the first examination recognized his paranoid schizophrenic, and the re showed that he was sane during the Commission of crimes. Breivik himself insisted that it is absolutely healthy, and have repeatedly talked about the willingness to go to jail.
Breivik never once complained about the conditions of detention in prison. In July 2015 the terrorist filed a suit in the court of the Norwegian authorities for it for a long time kept in solitary confinement. In February last year, he demanded that his PlayStation 2 was replaced by a newer third version with “access to adult games” he could choose. Prior to that, Breivik sent a letter to the editor of the Russian TV channel REN TV, which averaged seven illegal, in his opinion, action by the management of the correctional institution.
