30 Apr Ben Hannam: British police officer jailed for four years for belonging to neo-Nazi terror group | UK News
A British police officer convicted of belonging to a neo-Nazi terrorist group has been jailed for four years and four months.
Benjamin Hannam, 22, was found guilty of membership of right-wing extremist group National Action (NA) between 2016 and September 2017 following a trial at the Old Bailey.
He has been sacked by the Met for gross misconduct.
He had been working as a probationary officer for the Metropolitan Police for nearly two years before his name was discovered on a leaked database of users on extreme right-wing forum Iron March and he was arrested last year.
After the police constable’s arrest in March last year, detectives found an image on his iPhone showing him in police uniform, with a Hitler-style moustache superimposed on his face and a Nazi badge on his lapel.
