Life in prison is a permanent state of alarm.

You shouldn't show any feelings, you have to push the cross through and you shouldn't look anxiously.

"Every sign of weakness leads to an attack," said Soering.

"The most important thing within the prison hierarchy is that other people don't see you as the victim."

In November 2019, the responsible US body decided to release Soering on parole and deport him.

He was not pardoned.

Soering still maintains his innocence to this day.

He is never allowed to enter the USA again.

“I don't want to forget the past, I don't want to run away from it.

I can't undo it anyway, ”said the 55-year-old.
