Hungary's far-right Hatvannégy Vármegye Ifjúsági Mozgalom (Sixty-four Counties Youth Movement) was among the European radical groups which received a letter from Anders Behring Breivik, the suspect of last week’s shooting rampage in Norway, the group’s leader told commercial TV2 on Monday evening.
László Toroczkai said the electronic letter was sent from Breivik’s personal email address and 64 Counties was the only Hungarian organisation which received it. Toroczkai said Breivik outlined his ideology in the letter, which he only read after the attacks, and that there was no information which could have predicted such an act was going to take place.
He added he did not recall ever meeting Breivik in person.
Toroczkai condemned the double attack which killed at least 76 people last Friday. He said “their ideologies have some common points,” but they firmly condemn the mass murder committed in Norway.
