County Durham teenager accused of terror act plot
A TEENAGE white supremacist was behind a neo-Nazi group aiming to topple the British Government using the 9/11 atrocity as inspiration, a court heard.
Nicky Davison, 19, a former milkman’s assistant, is accused of being one of the founders of the Aryan Strike Force, an online far right group set up by his father.
The aim of the group was to carry out “ops” and to topple the corridors of power in Westminster, Newcastle Crown Court was told yesterday.
“Nicky Davison was involved with other people, including his father, Ian Davison, who called themselves the Aryan Strike Force,” prosecutor Andrew Edis said.
“He was associated with a group who were prepared to do what they called ‘ops’, in other words, paramilitary activity, and were in the early stages of preparation.”
The teenager’s 41-year-old father has already admitted six charges, including producing ricin, one of the world’s deadliest substances.
Ricin is a toxin which is extracted from the castor bean and exposure to even small quantities can be fatal.
The US Center for Disease Control suggests that as little as 500 micrograms – about half a grain of sand – of the substance can be lethal if injected or inhaled.
“The Aryan Strike Force was in essence a website to which people interested in its aims subscribed,” Mr Edis added.
“But its purpose was to form a group which would be ready to act. It was set up to advance the aims of white supremacy in these islands and fight what they call ‘Zog’, which means Zionist Occupied Government. They are strongly against the Government because their theory is that it has been taken over by the Jews and therefore must be resisted by white supremacists.”
