Burzum’s Varg Vikernes Released, No Charges Are Filed

Varg Vikernes

After being arrested in France earlier this week for suspicion of planning a massacre when his wife purchased several rifles, Burzum’s Varg Vikernes has now been released and no charges have been filed.

The website Nrk.no reports (translated from Norwegian):

“The French prosecutor confirms to NRK.no that Varg Vikernes was released at 19:00 Thursday night.

“Police were unable to identify specific terrorist plans or terrorist target and Vikernes would not be prosecuted for this. On Tuesday morning, he was arrested at his home with his wife on suspicion of planning terrorist acts.”

However, Vikernes will apparently still have to appear court in a few weeks for a breach of racism laws in France.

Vikernes served 21 years in prison for the murder of Mayhem’s Euronymous, as well as receiving convictions for burning four churches. He moved to France with his wife and children following his release in 2009.
