Justice Department considers law change that will make Breivik book illegal
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.
