Neo-Nazi who carved swastika on woman’s rear guilty of terror and hate crimes

Andrew Dymock, 24, who promoted an extreme right-wing website preaching against non-white, Jewish, and Muslim people, told jurors ‘thank you for kiling me’ after he was found guilty of the offences. A neo-Nazi student who carved a swastika into a woman’s buttock has been found guilty of terror and hate offences. Andrew Dymock, 24, the middle-class son of academics, told jurors “thank you for killing me” as he was led into custody on Friday. The jury at the Old Bailey found him guilty of 15 charges including 12 terrorism-related offences in relation to offending spanning 2017 and 2018. The court heard how he promoted the extreme right-wing System Resistance Network (SRN) group, which aimed to “stir up a race war”, through a Twitter account and a website. He used online platforms to raise money for the now-banned organisation, which “preached zero-tolerance” to non-whites, Jewish and Muslim communities and described homosexuality as a “disease”.
Police found a picture on one of Dymock’s devices showing a swastika cut into a woman’s buttock and he told detectives in a January 2019 interview he had used his nail to scratch the symbol. Dymock, who was at the time studying politics at Aberystwyth University in Wales, denied being behind the account. He claimed he was set up by someone who had allegedly failed to recruit him to join banned terrorist group National Action (NA). He told a jury the malicious activity included “people in the police or other agencies” who were sympathetic to NA and seeking to protect the unnamed person. But he was found guilty of five charges of encouraging terrorism, two of fundraising for terrorism, four counts of disseminating terrorist publications, possessing a terrorist document, stirring up racial hatred and hatred based on sexual orientation, and possessing racially inflammatory material. (…) Dymock was arrested at Gatwick Airport in connection with other matters, where he had intended to board a flight to America in June 2018. Police found in his luggage extreme right-wing literature including Siege, an anthology of pro-Nazi essays written by James Mason, and Mein Kampf, along with clothing bearing neo-Nazi logos.
