  10. Neo-Nazi accused teen chooses not to testify

    Press Association

    A teenager who denies being a member of a banned neo-Nazi terror group has opted not to give evidence in his own defence.

    Connor Scothern, 18, is standing trial at Birmingham Crown Court alongside three other defendants who also deny being part of National Action after it was outlawed in December 2016.

    Connor Scothern

    Jurors have previously been told that Mr Scothern, of Bagnall Avenue, Arnold, claims to have quit the group a day before it was made illegal.

    The prosecution claims Scothern was pictured giving a Nazi salute in a Nottingham cemetery in November 2016, and was "effectively an activist's activist" following the ban on National Action.

    Closing addresses by prosecution and defence barristers will take place later this week after agreed facts are presented to the court on behalf of Mr Scothern.
