Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik partly won a court case against the Norwegian state, in which he said he was the victim of human rights abuses in prison, a Norwegian court ruled on Wednesday.

“The prohibition of inhuman and degrading treatment represents a fundamental value in a democratic society. This applies no matter what – also in the treatment of terrorists and killers,” judge Helen Andenaes Sekulic said in her ruling.

The ruling also said the Norwegian state had not violated Breivik’s right to a private life and a family life.
