Dagsavisen reports that the Norwegian Justice Department is considering a law change that will make it illegal for Anders Behring Breivik to publish the book he is writing. Chief State’s Attorney, Kjerstin A. Kvande, has told Dagsavisen that she understands the need for an evaluation of such a law change.
On the other hand, the General Secretary of the Norwegian Press Association, Per Edgar Kokkvold, is skeptical of a law that makes it illegal for a person sentenced for a serious crime to publish a book.

Leader of the 7/22 support group, Trond Henry Blattmann, told NRK that he has received several letters from people supporting Anders Behring Breivik. Blattmann is the previous leader of the Vest-Agder Labor Party and was political advisor for the government from 2009 to 2011. Blattmann lost his 17 year old son on Utøya.
The people writing the letters say that we are in the process of destroying the country and that the borders should be closed, Blattmann says to NRK.
Receives letters from Breivik-supporters
Several of the 7/22 support group have received letters from people expressing support for terrorist Anders Behring Breivik.
“It is among other things, that Behring Breivik has the right and everybody else wrong. I have even been discussed with less nice words in these letters,” says Trond Henry Blattman leadership support group to NRK.no.
Blattman lost even his son on Utøya 22 July.
“They write that we are about to destroy the Norwegian society, and that we must block boundaries. It is a warped view of society these people present through letters. It comes warnings and underlying threats. It is not pleasant reading,” he says.
