Lawyers want bombing suspects moved

Lawyers for two alleged White supremacists charged in a 2004 bombing that injured a Black city official in Scottsdale want their clients moved from a county jail to a federal prison because they say the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office violated their rights. Twin brothers Dennis and Daniel Mahon are being held at the county’s Fourth Avenue jail. The brothers are charged in a bombing on Feb. 26, 2004, when a package detonated in the hands of Don Logan, Scottsdale’s diversity director at the time, injuring his hand and arm and hurting a secretary. Dennis Mahon’s lawyer, Deborah Williams, said in a court filing Dec. 11 that sheriff’s deputies have repeatedly denied her client access to pertinent documents in his case and violated attorney-client privilege by reading them. (…) Authorities found assault weapons, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and White supremacist material in the home

Prvnízprávy.cz: Czech neo-Nazis training assassins

The analytical section of the League against Anti-semitism (Liga proti antisemismu – LPA) says it has discovered an instruction portal on the web called Zone18 that is accessible to members of neo-Nazi organizations. The professional site was launched at the start of December 2009. “The LPA analytical section is a group of our co-workers who perform their activity in total anonymity. They never participate in our public actions, they don’t speak to the media,” LPA chair Věra Tydlitátová said in an interview for Prvnizpravy.cz. The LPA has delivered information on the website to Deputy Interior Minister Col. Jiří Komorous. Prvnizpravy.cz reports that he has submitted the information to the Organized Crime Detection Unit. The Zone18 portal contains a number of instruction manuals for terrorist groups and individuals. Materials entitled “Preparing Assassins” describe how to dispose of people: “… once the gunman is a few meters away from the victim, he then shoots him dead. On a busy street, no one will notice anything suspicious. The victim, collapsed on the ground, may just look like someone in temporary discomfort to passers-by,” says the manual. The instructions list many other approaches to murder. “Poison can get into the victim’s body orally, with his food, or can be absorbed through the skin when mixed into cosmetics. The recommended method is to use poison as an auxiliary to causing the victim’s death by other means. Stabbing the victim with a poisoned knife basically increases the possibility of his potential death even if the wound itself is not fatal,” the instruction manual says. The instructions for producing Molotov cocktails are very detailed and are almost identical to manuals which have appeared on other neo-Nazi portals in the past. It is more than likely that the perpetrators of the arson attack in Vítkov last spring drew on information from these sources. Prvnizpravy.cz reports that the text entitled “Partisan Experience” was allegedly developed by a former member of a WWII-era rebel group and describes armed warfare in natural settings. The neo-Nazis express their thanks to the author for providing the information.

Neo-Nazis launch web plot to attack Republican march in Glasgow – The Daily Record

A MOB of English neo-Nazi thugs plan to battle Irish republicans on the streets of Glasgow. The football hooligans, right wingers and loyalists, under the Scottish Defence League banner, have secret plans to cause chaos at a march next week to mark the 38th anniversary of the Derry Bloody Sunday massacre. A Sunday Mail investigation has revealed that SDL yobs aim to attack marchers from Irish republican groups on Sunday. SDL fanatics were forced out of Glasgow in November after failing to stoke racial hatred. Hundreds of police hemmed in around 70 racists and BNP thugs as they met at a city centre pub after failing to march on the central mosque.

Swedish suspect in Auschwitz theft speaks out

“I was asked if I wanted to take the sign from one location to another,” Anders Hoegstroem, 34, a former Swedish neo-Nazi, told tabloid Aftonbladet. “We had a person who was willing to pay several millions (of kronor, or hundreds of thousands of dollars/euros) for the sign,” he said. A Swede who admitted taking part in planning the theft of the infamous Nazi German “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign from Auschwitz spoke out in the Swedish media Friday, appearing with his name and photograph. Anders Hoegstroem, 34, a former Swedish neo-Nazi, said he was supposed to act as an intermediary to pick up the sign and sell it to a buyer, but in the end he wound up informing Polish police about the people behind the plot.

Officials Obscured Truth of Migrant Deaths in Jail

Silence has long shrouded the men and women who die in the nation’s immigration jails. For years, they went uncounted and unnamed in the public record. Even in 2008, when The New York Times obtained and published a federal government list of such deaths, few facts were available about who these people were and how they died. (…) The documents, obtained over recent months by The Times and the American Civil Liberties Union under the Freedom of Information Act, concern most of the 107 deaths in detention counted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement since October 2003, after the agency was created within the Department of Homeland Security.

Mitgliederexplosion: NPD legt laut Innenminister in MV deutlich zu

Dass Innenminister von Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Lorenz Caffier, „lieber heute als morgen“ ein NPD-Verbot anstrengen wollen würde, war wenig überraschend. Allerdings ließ er in einem Interview auch durchblicken, dass die NPD einen enormen Mitgliederzuwachs im vergangenen Jahr verzeichnet haben soll. Von 400 Mitgliedern im Jahr 2007 konnte sich die NPD im vergangenen Jahr angeblich auf bis zu 700 Mitglieder steigern.
