The fact that Norway’s maximum penalty for any crime is 21 years in prison is
facing rising criticism in the wake of the twin attacks that killed 93 people,
with many deeming the penalty too lax.
Ever since Norwegian media named 32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik as the
prime suspect, calls have been growing for the maximum penalty under the
Norwegian penal code to be extended.
If found guilty, Behring Breivik’s 21 years in prison would equal a penalty
of 82 days per killing.
Must be the metric system.
