Anders Behring Breivik, who was denied parole in Telemark District Court, will not be allowed to appeal the ruling to the Agder Court of Appeal, the newspaper Dagbladet reports.

The ruling on Friday was unanimous, according to Dagbladet.

“Releasing Breivik on parole at the end of the minimum term would be an indefensible experiment,” the judges wrote in the ruling.

In February, the Telemark District Court ruled that Anders Behring Breivik is still dangerous and obviously disturbed. The court rejected his request for parole, but Breivik appealed the decision.

Breivik applied for parole after serving a minimum of 10 years in the 21-year sentence he received for the terrorist attack on July 22, 2011. He claimed that he now distances himself from violence. However, he said he would fight for National Socialist values ​​peacefully if he were released.

The district court concluded that there is a significant risk that Breivik would return to the behavior that led to him committing the terrorist acts in 2011.
