Bamber was told by Britain's Home Secretary that he would never be released from prison, after being convicted in 1986 of murdering five members of his own family at Tolleshunt D'Arcy near Maldon in Essex.
The European Court of Human Rights has now ruled that so-called whole life sentences are illegal and that has outraged politicians, as well as members of Bamber's own family.
