The tribulations suffered by the incarcerated Anders Breivik are unimaginably harsh. Intolerable conditions include a three-room en-suite cell comprising a bedroom, study and exercise room, measuring in total a mere 86 sq ft. The BBC
reported Breivik whines about the lack of a view from his cell.
The switch for the flat screen television provided is inconveniently located outside his cell, forcing Breivik to ask for help to change channels. His list of complaints gets even worse. He is not allowed moisturiser, his toast lacks enough butter and his coffee is cold.
The humiliation of using a stab-resistant bendy pen particularly annoys the killer. The Guardian
reported Breivik complained the pen caused his hand to cramp, describing the indignity as "an almost indescribable manifestation of sadism." His cramp should be alleviated by the electric typewriter the prison has provided for him.
Prison officials are reviewing Breivik's complaints. When the luxury prison, described as the most humane in the world, opened, the Daily Mail
reported Prison governor Are Hoidal stressed "In the Norwegian prison system, there's a focus on human rights and respect."
Tord Jordet, Breivik's lawyer, supports his complaints, saying "Such treatment isn't human."
