While this petition is addressed to Helle Thorning-Schmidt, we hope that it would also get the deserved attention of Barack Obama, Carl Bildt, Karen Hækkerup (Danish Minister of Justice) and Morten Bødskov (former Minister of Justice) among others.
Our previous petition at Avaaz Community Petition to Swedish Minister of Foreign Affairs, has gathered over 400 signatories, but has not lead to any kind of response. Anakata is still held captive in unbearable conditions, without even charges been pressed against him.
So what is our need and motivation to launch another petition campaign?
While the Swedish upper level court dropped charges related to the Nordea hacking, and reduced his overall sentence to half on 25th of September 2013, so that Anakata should be freed by now, he was nevertheless extradited to Denmark, and is now locked up in high security prison under constant surveillance, while reduced to bare minimum, almost no outside contact. Even his Mother cannot visit him during the Holiday Season, since there are not enough guards for that. His total contact with other inmates cannot exceed 9 hours a week.
During his incarceration in Sweden Anakata began to take some advanced mathematical courses in order to increase his education and to give him something to do during his detention there.
As of now, prison authorities have left him without access to any type of reading material. He is not allowed have newspapers, magazines, books that are in the prison library, or his books that were brought from Sweden with him during extradition. Since his arrival he has received no letters, only a handful of postcards.
The prison services excuse all of this by saying that they are worried about anakata ruining the evidence that they have not even found yet, that he could find out sensitive information through reading the paper/magazines or letters.
With only 9 hours a week of contact outside of his isolation cell, reading and educational materials are important for anakata. He is a computer genius and it is important for not only mental but physical health to keep a mind active.
Please sign the petition asking the Ministry of Justice in Denmark to override the restriction for reading/educational materials on inmate #171084, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, aka anakata.
