An armed man accused of killing 51 victims of Christchurch mosques in New Zealand wrote a letter from prison, expressing his political and social views and was reported to have been uploaded on social media.
However, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern criticized the move and considered it an act of injustice.
The New Zealand Herald also published a six-page image with a cover letter, believed to be from the terrorist, Brenton Tarrant, who was sent from Auckland Prison.
The letter is said to be in response to a letter sent to him by a man named Alan, who reportedly lives in Russia.
“I think all New Zealanders expect this person to not share their hate messages from prison.
“It’s very clear that this offender has a specific goal, to share his propaganda, so we need to be prepared for that,” Ardern said.
Prisoners are allowed to send and receive letter and the director of the prison may only prevent it under certain circumstances.
“We are making changes to the mail order from the prisoner to make the process as effective as we want it to be,” the New Zealand Herald reported in a statement from the New Zealand Prison Department.
