THREE people appeared in court yesterday accused of belonging to a rebranded version of banned neonazi organisation National Action.
Garry Jack, 22, of Heathland Avenue, Birmingham, Daniel Ward, 28, of Highmore Drive, Birmingham, and a 17-year-old boy appeared before Westminster magistrates charged with membership of the group contrary to section 11 of the Terrorism Act 2000.
Prosecutors say the three “continued with the membership [of National Action], albeit under a different name,” between December 2016 and September 2017 after the far-right organisation was banned.
All three declined to indicate a plea to the single charge.
Mr Jack and Mr Ward were remanded in custody before a preliminary hearing at the Old Bailey on October 12. The teenager was released on bail.
The three were arrested at the same time as two others, Mark Jones, 24, and Alice Cutter, 22, both of Wharf Street in Halifax, who appeared at the same court charged with the same offence on September 7.
All five are due to appear at the Old Bailey next month.
