«I am a prisoner of conscience, suffering for my beliefs.
I consider the charges against me and my detention to be illegal,»
«You are the aggressors who attacked and killed civilians.
You will not be in any kind of heaven, you will be in hell,»
He says, that he would rather serve a longer sentence than admit any wrong-doing and if that happens he will preach to fellow inmates.
In it he said those responsible for the aggression will not be allowed in heaven.
