Breivik with Nazi salute in court
NORWAY -- Anders Behring Breivik came in a dark suit and tie when he appeared in the makeshift courtroom in Skien prison Tuesday afternoon. He has grown a beard since he last appeared in public.

When he arrived at his place, he stretched his right hand forward in a Nazi salute to the photographers, something the Presiding Judge disliked a lot.

- We have TV here and saw that you raised your arm and made a greeting, said Judge Øystein Hermansen, addressing Breivik when the court was sat down.

- It's insulting to the court's dignity with such behavior and also acts disruptive of what we will examine here. So I ask that you do not do it again during the proceedings, continued Hermansen.

Anders Behring Breivik is serving a sentence of 21 years' detention with a ten years minimum term for the terrorist attacks on Utøya and the government building in Oslo on July 22, 2011. 77 people were killed and a large number of people were seriously wounded.

On July 1, 2015, Breivik sued the state for human rights violations because of his prison conditions. The trial came up in the Oslo District Court on March 15 and was for security reasons held in the maximum security prison in Skien.

On April 20, the Oslo District Court stated that the prison conditions are contrary to the European Convention on Human Rights Article 3, prohibiting inhuman or degrading treatment. The state was acquitted of breaches of Article 8 on respect for privacy, however.

Both the state and Breivik have appealed parts of the ruling, and the appeal proceedings began on Tuesday.
