Norwegian Far-Right Terrorist Breivik Rejected by Oslo University
Norwegian far-right mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, who had been seeking to study political science at the University of Olso while in prison, has had his application to the program rejected, the University said on Tuesday.
“The conclusion is that Breivik was judged not sufficiently qualified to start the political science course,” Olso University Rector Ole Petter Ottersen told AFP.
Sentenced to 21 years in prison, a sentence that could be extended, for killing 77 people, Breivik applied for a place on a course he could follow from his cell.
His application had troubled the staff; some professors even stated they would refuse any contacts with Breivik.
According to Ottersen, a standard rejection letter has been sent to Breivik.
