The Oslo court today condemned the right-wing Anders Behring Breivik to the maximum penalty of 21 years imprisonment extendable to consider criminally responsible for the attacks in Norway last year, which killed 77 people.

Breivik was sentenced to a custodial sentence of up to 21 years and a minimum of 10 years, said the chief judge, the chief judge Wenche Elizabeth Arntzen, who explained that the verdict is unanimous.

Custody is a legal figure in Norwegian law practice may amount to a life sentence, because after serving their sentence, this can be extended indefinitely if one considers that the defendant remains a danger to society.

Breivik, who initially had said he would use only if they are declared mentally ill and sentenced to forced psychiatric treatment, received the verdict with a smile.

The penalty shall be served in a maximum security facility in the Ila prison, west of Oslo, where he remains in custody for a year.

Breivik detonated a car bomb on July 22, 2011 in the government complex in Oslo, killing eight people, and then moved to drive Utya Island, west of the capital, where he made a killing in the Labor Youth camp, which killed 69 people ..
