According to press reports on Sunday, in the document, which Aussie Brenton Harrison Tarrant published online and e-mailed to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern just minutes before his Friday attacks on two Christchurch mosques in New Zealand, said referred to the country’s first black president, Mandela, as “a terrorist”.
“I do not expect to be released but I also expect an eventual Nobel Peace Prize - as was awarded to the terrorist Nelson Mandela once his own people achieved victory and took power.
“I expect to be freed in 27 years from my incarceration, the same number of years as Mandela, for the same crime,” the Australian wrote in the document.
South Africa joined a host of countries in condemning the attacks, which have thrown New Zealand into a state of mourning.
Tarrant, who is under detention since the massacre, is expected to return to prison soon to answer to a murder charge, New Zealand officials have said after he appeared in court on Saturday.
