A neo-Nazi student convicted of raising money for an extreme right-wing group and promoting his “distorted and evil case” online has been jailed for seven years.
Andrew Dymock, 24, the middle-class son of academics, was found guilty in June of 15 charges, including 12 terror-related offenses, and told jurors “Thank you for killing me” after learning his fate.
Judge Mark Dennis QC found Dymock a dangerous perpetrator and highlighted his continued “state of denial”. He sentenced Dymock to seven years in prison with another three years on extended license, Wales Online reports.
The judge said Dymock was an “active and committed supporter of right-wing neo-Nazi extremism”. He had a “prominent role” in the now banned System Resistance Network (SRN) group in 2017 and promoted it on a website and Twitter.
Dymock was “deposed” as leader in 2018 and he continued to form a new group, the judge said.
Former Aberystwyth University policy student Dymock was “driven by an extremist mindset that had been entrenched at the time of the arrest” and his actions were “calculated and sophisticated”.
His behavior was designed to encourage others to commit “unjustified violence against people because of their race, religion, or sexuality,” the judge said.
In conclusion, the judge said that Dymock was intelligent and read, but “completely misled” in his spokesman for his “distorted and evil case”.
