Jail for Nazi Terror Operator

08/05/2021

A former Metropolitan Police constable, Benjamin Hannam has been jailed for four years and four months for membership and active service with a Neo-Nazi organisation called National Action, who are so far on the political right wing that they were formally banned in 2016 by the then Home Secretary. It is rare for the British government to ban organisations on the far right or the far left. Any extremist groups is usually monitored and kept under surveillance in preference for banning. Hannam was active and engaging with National Action operatives whilst a serving police officer, the courts found. Despite National Action's far right wing agenda, which includes homophobic policies, it is of interest that Hannam was one of several of its arrested members to possess illegal images of children and to have an interest in abuse. He was also prosecuted for this in an unrelated court case. It seems that many of these heterosexual supremacists in actual fact have highly dubious sexual tastes. Hannam was monitored along with other neo-Nazis who used a far right wing forum called Iron March, according to the Met Police's Counter Terror unit.
