A man who performed a Nazi salute outside a Jewish primary school has been fined by police.
Stephen Panagi made the offensive gesture from his car window outside Wolfson Hillel Primary School in Southgate.
The incident occured on 20 April 2018, a significant date in neo-Nazi circles as it was Hitler’s birthday.
Mr Panagi was sentenced to 100 hours’ unpaid community service after he pleaded guilty to a racially aggravated breach of the Public Order Act. He was also ordered to pay £50 in compensation, an £85 surcharge, £85 in costs and to attend a session on Holocaust education.
A further incident saw a man shout abuse at Jewish patrons of a kosher supermarket in Hendon. He was apprehended by Shomrim North West London, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol, before being investigated at a nearby police station and let off without sanction.
