Member of banned neo-Nazi terror group National Action jailed for three years

David Musins was convicted of being a member of National Action, which has continued its actions despite being banned in 2016.

A member of the banned neo-Nazi terror organisation National Action has been jailed for three years.

David Musins was sentenced today at the Old Bailey after pleading guilty to membership of a proscribed organisation.

He is the second National Action member to be convicted this month, after a trial heard the group had continued its actions since it was banned in 2016.

Nick Price, head of the CPS Counter Terrorism Division, said: “David Musins continued to associate with members of a banned right-wing group which perpetrated hateful and racist views.

“It is right that faced with the evidence against him he admitted this offence and has been sentenced today.”

National Action was named a terrorist organisation in 2016. Its founder, Alex Davies, was found guilty of terror offences last week at a trial which heard National Action had splintered into regional groups.

The group openly celebrated the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox in 2016 and called for a “race war”. In 2019, National Action member Jack Renshaw was sentenced to life in prison for plotting to kill Labour MP Rosie Cooper and a police officer.

Price added: “There is no place in society for these beliefs. Our team at the CPS has prosecuted a number of National Action cases since it became a proscribed organisation, and we will continue to prosecute all cases involving banned organisations where possible.”
