(LONDON) Old Bailey Court Report: A former probationary police officer has been sentenced at the to a total of four years and four months in prison after he was exposed as a secret member of a neo-Nazi group #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.10: Benjamin Hannam, 22, was found guilty of being a former member of National Action after a trial earlier this month. He was also convicted of possession of documents containing information useful for a terrorist purpose, and fraud. He had lied in a Metropolitan Police Service application form and vetting form about his prior membership of the terror group.

Former police officer jailed for National Action membership: ‘Hannam had previously admitted possession of a prohibited image of a child found on his computer. The CPS showed he deliberately selected and downloaded it’

30 April 2021

Hannam claimed he had never been a member of National Action. However the CPS was able to show that before it was banned by the Government in December 2016, he regularly posted comments on an online message board and sought to recruit others. After the ban his membership of the group continued and he attended a meeting of National Action members in a pub in Swindon in January 2017.

The prosecution used CCTV images, travel and financial transactions to confirm he was there. Others attending included some who would later be convicted of membership of National Action and terrorism-related offences. A few months later, Hannam attended an outdoor boxing session held in a woodland. He was seen in video footage of the event.

On a USB stick found in Hannam’s belongings, there was a manual on how to use a knife to kill someone and a document written by Anders Breivik, a right-wing extremist who killed 77 people in terrorist attacks in Norway in 2011.

Jenny Hopkins, Head of the CPS Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division, said: “Benjamin Hannam lied on his police application and vetting forms in an attempt to hide his dangerous and racist’s beliefs. During the trial we were able to prove that Hannam had been a member of National Action, a banned far-right terror group, which led to his conviction.” The CPS also applied for a Serious Crime Prevention Order for a period of two years after Hannam’s release. This includes restrictions to ensure effective management of Hannam’s use of the internet to protect the public after his release.

  • Today, Benjamin Hannam (DOB 22/07/1998) was sentenced to four years and four months in total
    • Count 1: Membership of a proscribed organisation (National Action) – three years and four months to run currently with counts 4 and 5 but consecutively to counts 2 and 3

(LONDON) CPS REPORT: Two police officers have been charged with misconduct in public office in connection with photographs taken and circulated in relation to a murder crime scene #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.29: The misconduct alleged relates to the investigation into the deaths of 46-year-old Bibaa Henry and 27-year-old Nicole Smallman in Fryent Country Park in Wembley in June 2020.

Two police officers charged with misconduct in connection with investigation into death of sisters in Wembley: ‘PC Deniz Jaffer, 47, and PC Jamie Lewis, 32, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, 27 May 2021 for their first hearing. Both officers have each been charged with one count of misconduct in public office’

28 April 2021:

The CPS London Complex Casework unit authorised the charges following a review of a file of evidence from the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against both defendants are active and that they have a right to a fair trial. It is extremely important there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.

Addtional Notes:

  • PC Deniz Jaffer (DOB: 28/12/1973) is from Forest Gate Police Station in the Newham Borough
  • PC Jamie Lewis (DOB: 09/08/1988) is from Forest Gate Police Station in the Newham Borough

The function of the CPS is not to decide whether a person is guilty of a criminal offence, but to make fair, independent and objective assessments about whether it is appropriate to present charges for a criminal court to consider.

The CPS assessment of any case is not in any sense a finding of, or implication of, any guilt or criminal conduct. It is not a finding of fact, which can only be made by a court, but rather an assessment of what it might be possible to prove to a court, in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors.

  • Danyal Hussein, 18, (DOB: 10/05/2002) from Blackheath, has been charged with two counts of murder and possession of an offensive weapon, and faces trial later this year.
