BURZUM - Varg Vikernes Released From Custody2013-07-22
Not surprisingly, the French prosecutor has confirmed that Varg Vikernes of Burzum has been released from custody two days after he was arrested in central France on suspicion of "preparing a major terrorist act".
According to NRK, the French police had not been able to uncover any concrete plans for terrorism or any targets for such attacks, and Vikernes will not be charged with this.
However, Vikernes is not entirely off the hook. He will have to appear in court in a few weeks time, charged with breech of French racism laws, through his many alleged racist statements on the internet. But it is still unclear when the trial will begin. Also, if you feel like it, you can watch Varg leave on a car here.
The basis for the arrest of Vikernes was that the police had monitored his internet activities. Police were aware of his hate speech on two specific blogs against Jews and Muslims. He was arrested with his French wife after she bought four rifles. Vikernes' wife was later released on Wednesday.
What will Vikernes write on his blogs now?
