A teenage member of a banned neo-Nazi group has pleaded guilty to terrorism offences at Winchester Crown Court.
Luca Benincasa, 19, has become the first person to be convicted of belonging to the Feuerkrieg Division since it was banned in July 2020.
When the police raided Mr Benincasa’s residence, they found a flag depicting the logo of the SS, the Nazi paramilitary organisation, hanging from his bedroom wall, and a Nazi dagger and parts of an SS officer’s uniform, including a hat and a swastika armband, among his possessions.
His laptop, meanwhile, was found to contain Nazi and neo-Nazi literature and documents.
Mr Benincasa was remanded in custody by Judge Jane Miller QC, and sentencing has been adjourned until 20th September.
Campaign Against Antisemitism closely monitors the far-right, which remains a dangerous threat to the Jewish community and other minority groups.
