The Norwegian state will appeal an Oslo court ruling that mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik's solitary confinement in prison constitutes "inhuman" treatment, the government said on Tuesday.Norway prides itself on a humane prison system aimed more at rehabilitation than punishment, and the April 20 verdict stunned observers.Judge Helen Andenaes Sekulic ruled in favour of the state on that issue, finding that prison authorities had not violated his right to correspondence, guaranteed by Article 8 of the convention.After the ruling, Breivik's lawyer Oystein Storrvik requested that his client's isolation be ended immediately.Storrvik, who had previously said Breivik would not appeal the rulings that were not in his favor, said Tuesday that he and his client would now reconsider.
