A couple who were members of banned neo-Nazi terrorist group National Action have received jail sentences totalling over 10 years at Birmingham Crown Court.
Judge Melbourne Inman QC sentenced Adam Thomas, 22, to six years and six months. Claudia Patatas, 38, from Banbury, received a five-year terminstead of six as “an act of mercy”.
Thomas was also convicted of having a terrorist manual containing “viable” bomb making instructions.
Jurors heard that Patatas told a group member that “all Jews must be put to death” and wanted to “bring back concentration camps.”
The neo-Nazis gave their baby the middle name Adolf to honour the Nazi leader.
Judge Inman QC told the Nazi pair, who wept during sentencing, “You acted together in all you thought, said and did, in the naming of your son and the disturbing photographs of your child, surrounded by symbols of Nazism and the Ku Klux Klan.”
Four other group members received jail sentences.
Daniel Bogunovic, 27, from Leicester, described as a “committed National Action leader, propagandist and strategist” within the Midlands cell, will serve a six year and four-month term, “banker” Joel Wilmore, 24, and “security enforcer,” Nathan Pryke, 26, received terms of five years and 10 months five years and five months respectively.
Darren Fletcher, 28, from Wolverhampton received a five-year term.
Regarding National Action, Judge Inman QC said, “Its aims and objectives are the overthrow of democracy in this country by serious violence and murder, and the imposition of a Nazi-style state which would eradicate whole sections of society by such violence and mass murder.
“The eradication of those who you consider to be inferior because of no more than the colour of their skin or their religion.”
The judge added: “If there was any room for misunderstanding then any member of the public need only watch the video shown in court”.
“Promotional footage for National Action would give a stark and rightly terrifying image of what life in this country would be like if your organization achieved its aims.
“The public have a right to know what you would wish to subject them to.”
Jurors heard during the seven-week trial that right-wing Nazi pendants, flags and clothing and National Action items were discovered.
National Action was founded in 2013 and banned under anti-terror legislation in 2016 after celebrating the murder of Jo Cox MP.
Then home secretary, Amber Rudd, described the neo-Nazi organisation as “racist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic.”
