    Mark Barrett

    Mark Barrett (pictured), 24, and Mikko Vevhilainen, 33, entered their pleas during a preliminary hearing at Birmingham Crown Court.

    The three men, who are all in custody, will stand trial on 5 March.

    Private Barrett, from Cottesmore in Rutland, appeared in court in person, while Lance Corporal Vehvilainen, from Sennybridge Camp in Powys, appeared by video link from HMP Belmarsh.

    At an earlier preliminary hearing L/Cpl Vehvilainen pleaded not guilty to two counts of posting material online that was threatening, abusive or insulting, thereby stirring up racial hatred, and one count of possession of a document likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

    The document is alleged to have been 2083: A European Declaration of Independence, written by Anders Breivik (pictured below), who killed 77 people in two terror attacks in Norway in 2011.

    He is also accused of possession of a pepper spray.

    The third defendant has previously pleaded not guilty to two counts of possession of a document likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism, and one count of distributing a terrorist publication.

    National Action became the first far-right group to be banned in the UK when it was proscribed under anti-terror laws in December 2016.
