UK: ‘Miss Hitler’ and 3 other neo-Nazis jailed for membership of banned terror group
Four neo-Nazi terrorists, including a ‘Miss Hitler’ beauty pageant contestant, have been jailed in Britain, after being convicted of membership of the banned National Action (NA) terror group in March.
The Birmingham Crown Court sentenced Alice Cutter (24), to three years in prison and her ex-boyfriend Mark Jones (25), to five-and-a-half years, alongside co-accused Nazi terrorists Garry Jack (24), and Connor Scothern, (19).
A fifth neo-Nazi terrorist was sentenced to three years in prison last year.
Jurors were shown messages in which Cutter, who entered a beauty contest as ‘The Buchenwald Princess’ in reference to the Second World War death camp, had joked about gassing synagogues, using a Jewish person’s head as a football, and saying “Rot in hell, bitch” after hearing about the 2016 killing of MP Jo Cox in the run-up to the Brexit referendum.
Cutter and Jones, who lived in Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire, were involved in trying to recruit schoolgirls aged 15 and 16 as part of a plan for teenage recruitment.
Prosecutors said a search of the home that Cutter and Jones shared revealed Nazi paraphernalia and images, as well as weapons including knives, brass knuckles, catapults, a longbow and ball bearings.
The National Action terror group, labeled ‘racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic organization that stirs up hatred and glorifies violence’, was banned in December 2016.
They represented a ‘tiny, self-selecting group of young people in this country, for whom Hitler’s work will always be unfinished,’ prosecutor Barnaby Jameson said.
After National Action was banned, they used encrypted chat groups on the Telegram app called Triple K Mafia – a reference to the Ku Klux Klan – and Inner Circle to continue their activities.
The latest convictions bring to 21 the number of neo-Nazis linked to National Action who have been convicted of terrorism or hate crimes.
