Tord Jordet makes statement about Commander Breivik’s letter ban

One of Breivik’s laywers, Tord Jordet, has made a statement about the ban preventing Breivik from sending letter.

Earlier this year on February 5 I reported that Breivik wasn’t allowed access to funds like ordinary prisoners, and that he wouldn’t be able to respond unless people include stamps. Thanks to many generous donations Breivik should have enough stamps to last him a while.

On July 26 the prison authorities were instructed to start censoring Breivik’s outgoing mail. According to today’s statement by Tord Jordet this resulted in a complete stop of all outgoing mail on August 8, and currently about 150 letters are waiting to be reviewed and mailed. Some of the incoming mail is being withheld as well, most likely mail that contains information about his support networks.

I reported on this ban on October 23 with the mainstream media being either unaware or unwilling to report on the matter. As per the Norwegian constitution Breivik is entitled to free speech.

According to insider information Breivik is trying to work things out with the prison authorities, if it has to go to court it will take several months for the matter to be resolved. Breivik remains mentally strong and is working on writing several books. He is not allowed to have access to his compendium, 2083, so it’s unlikely he’ll be able to publish an updated version.

On October 31 Breivik wrote a 27 page letter to the Norwegian Correctional Services about his conditions. The letter has been leaked to the press. Besides censorship his grievances include having spent 15 months in isolation, only being allowed a couple of minutes of human contact a day. Guards are forbidden from having casual conversations with Breivik, and he’s subjected to daily searches where he’s forced to fully undress.

If the ban becomes permanent the next course of action for Breivik will be to self terminate, most likely by means of a hunger strike as this will have the strongest psychological impact.

Update 2012-11-26

In a November 10 Skype interview with the BBC Tord Jordet stated:

He is not allowed to send any letters which touches any political issues, or things with his hopes for the future of Europe. He has stated that he’s been subjected to inhuman and degrading treatment in prison.

    This is disheartening. I don't suppose Breivik can expect any kind of positive resolution. If he self-terminates it will be a victory for the system, they will paint him as a narcissist who cracked once his spotlight was removed. Not sure if his suicide would have any radicalizing effects, it might spur some to shift from 'fan clubbing' to action, or it may breed more indifference or passivity.

    Make sure that you remember the difference between self-termination and suicide, Mysticum ;)

    I agree, the media will jump to assassinate his character whenever a situation where they can arises.

    Fun fact, I have been suspended from Facebook for 30 days for adding too many people. I one day I have gotten 14 friends and sent them all links to Commander Breivik's manifesto and urged them to send it to their friends.

    Why suspend me for adding a 14 people when the daily add limit is 50? Lol. I guess the traitors have silenced me for 30 days. I'll just go make another account :-)
