A founding member of the English Defence League (EDL), who is linked to Norwegian mass-murderer Anders Behring Breivik, is due to appear in court in Oslo this week.

Breivik referred to “Richard the Lionheart”—better known as Paul Ray—as his mentor in his hate-filled manifesto.

Ray, who idolises the Knights Templar crusaders, moved to Malta after police in Britain began to investigate his blog for race hate.

He will now fly to Oslo in an attempt to distance himself from Breivik, who murdered 77 people in July. In Breivik’s manifesto he boasted about his links to the EDL in Britain.
