Neo-Nazi arrests: United Kingdom soldiers charged with terror offences”

Three British Army soldiers have been charged with terror offences including being members of a banned neo-Nazi organisation.

Mikko Vehvilainen, 32 from Brecon, Powys, and Mark Barrett, 24, based at a garrison in Cyprus, are serving members of the armed forces and have been charged for their alleged membership of the group.

The suspects are due in court Tuesday.

National Action, described by the Home Office as "virulently racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic", became the first extreme right-wing group to be banned under terrorism laws in December 2016.

They are among five men arrested on 5 September.

Vehvilainen was also charged with possessing documents useful in committing or preparing an act of terrorism, as well as publishing threatening or abusive material and possessing a weapon.

Alexander Deakin, 22, from Birmingham, is the third man charged for the connection to National Action.

The arrests were pre-planned and intelligence-led and there was no risk to the public's safety. Two others have since been released without charge.
