LONDON (AP) — A British couple with neo-Nazi views who named their son after Adolf Hitler have been convicted of membership of an outlawed far-right group.
A jury at Birmingham Crown Court in central England on Monday found 22-year-old Adam Thomas and 38-year-old Claudia Patatas guilty of being members of National Action. A third defendant, Daniel Bogunovic, was also convicted.
During the trial, jurors were shown photos of Thomas holding his baby son — who was given the middle name Adolf — while wearing the white robes of the racist Ku Klux Klan.
The government banned National Action in 2016 after lawmaker Jo Cox was murdered by a far-right extremist.
British police say the threat from violent far-right groups is growing, with four plots foiled in the year to March.
