Man admits to defacing war memorial with antisemitic graffiti in Wales
A man has admitted to defacing a war memorial with antisemitic graffiti in Wales.
The graffiti on the memorial in Rhyl, Wales was discovered in February and included swastikas and vile messages which refer to the murder of Jews and gassing of soldiers.
The graffiti also contained the line, in German, that “the time has come for a Reich [empire]: we must exterminate the Jews.”
Gareth Bradley, 31, confessed earlier this week to committing the act of hateful vandalism. He also pleaded guilty to defacing his prison cell with graffiti of a swastika in April.
Mr Bradley was granted bail and is due to be sentenced by a crown court judge next month.
District Judge Paul Conlon said at Llandudno court: “The offences are too serious for this court to deal with.”
