December 1, 2021
Barnaby Jameson QC and Naomi Parsons have successfully prosecuted the co-founder of neo-Nazi organisation, National Action.
National Action was banned by the Government as a terrorist organisation in December 2016.
32-year-old Ben Raymond from Swindon remained involved in the group between December 2016 and September 2017, participating in group chats, designing propaganda and continuing to communicate with other leading figures. The Defendant was arrested on the same day as Jack Renshaw, a follower of the group who went on to admit plotting to kill a Labour MP with a sword.
He was found guilty of being a member of a banned terrorist organisation and convicted of possessing terrorist information.
This included the ‘Breivik Manifesto’ written by the Norwegian Neo-Nazi terrorist, Anders Breivik, who murdered 77 people in 2011 and contained detailed instructions on bombmaking. The other manual gave instructions on making home-made detonators.
He is the 17th person to be convicted of membership of National Action.
Ben Raymond was sentenced to 10 years on Friday 3 Dec, 2021 at Bristol Crown Court.
