Varg Vikernes and his wife, Marie Cachet, have been released from French jail. The two weren’t officially charged with a crime after being nabbed earlier this week by police who suspected them of planning a massacre. Norwegian TV station NRK said, “Police were unable to identify specific terrorist plans or a terrorist target.” The Burzum frontman (who occasionally also goes by the name Louis Cachet) will still be required to appear in court to face accusations that he breeched French racism laws by making hateful comments about Jews and Muslims online. Everyone’s innocent until proven guilty, of course, but if what he’s posted on the Internet is any indication, he will probably lose that one.
