Two men received prison sentences on June 18 following an extreme right wing operation by Counter Terrorism Policing North East (CTP NE) in the U.K. Michal Szewczuk and Oskar Dunn-Koczorowski were members of a group calling itself Sonnenkrieg Division, described as the “third generation” of banned terrorist group National Action.
After setting up online accounts for the faction last year, the pair shared a series of propaganda posters featuring swastikas and the Nazi “black sun” symbol alongside their own logo. One of the posters depicted Prince Harry with a gun pointing towards his head and was captioned “See ya later, race traitor”.
Szewczuk (14/04/2000) from Leeds was sentenced to 4 years and 3 months in prison and Dunn-Koczorowski (15/03/2001) from London was sentenced to 18 months.
At an earlier hearing, Szewczuk pleaded guilty to two counts under Section 1 (Encouraging Terrorism) and five counts under Section 58 (possession of material likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of Terrorism) of the Terrorism Act 2006. Dunn-Koczorowski pleaded guilty to two counts under Section 1 of the Terrorism Act 2006.
Detective Chief Superintendent Martin Snowden is the Head of CTP NE and said: “Dunn-Koczorowski and Szewczuk clearly see themselves as superior to the majority of society and they feel their duty is to express their beliefs, in turn teaching others.
“The considerable amount of material they have posted on social media channels not only reflects their extremist beliefs but was intended to encourage others to carry out despicable acts. Both men have developed and evolved their interest in the extreme right wing ideology over time through research and connecting with like-minded individuals.”
