Since January when communication restrictions at Ila Prison (Ila Fengsel) were lifted, Anders Behring Breivik has received many letters from private individuals, one of Breivik’s lawyers, Vibeke Hein Bæra, told NRK. Several of these have responded to communication from Breivik, she explained. Bæra told NRK that Breivik is primariy interested in corresponding with people who share his ideology.
Bæra also told NRK that Breivik spends much time thinking about to what degree his ideas, and particularly those communicated in his manifest, have taken root in society. She also says that Breivik is very focused on prioritizing his time. Lately he has received access to a copy of his manifest and several thousand pages of police documents.

Anders Behring Breivik (33) writes a letter with several people who share his ideology. The terrorist is concerned about his so-called manifesto has taken root in society.
After letters and visits controls were lifted in January, Breivik received numerous letters from individuals in the cell, confirming the defender Vibeke Hein Bæra.
Several have also responded directly to requests from the terror suspect 33-year-old, said the lawyer told NRK.
“He is primarily concerned with writing letters to what he defines as like-minded, and that shares his ideology. He receives many letters in prison, both from like-mind and other types of inquiries. They [the letter writers] do not support [his] actions, but there are many [of them] who share his ideology. Some of these people have written back to him,” said Bæra.
She does not rule out that some of the people Breivik have contact with may be relevant as witnesses at trial….
