Two podcasters in the UK who were Nazi sympathizers and called on listeners to commit violent acts against ethnic minorities were sentenced yesterday to a total of 15 years in prison. The two podcasters had also called for the murder of Prince Harry and his family.
Two Nazi-sympathizing podcasters, Londoners Christopher Gibbons (40) and Tyrone Patten-Walsh (36), have been sentenced to a total of 15 years in prison for promoting racist, antisemitic, Islamophobic, homophobic and misogynistic views to listeners, the Metropolitan Police (MET) announced yesterday. Gibbons was sentenced to 8 years and Patten-Walsh to 7 years.
The duo, who were detained in May 2021, were convicted of all charges in a court hearing on July 7, 2023, and their sentences were announced yesterday for 'disseminating terrorist publications and violating terrorism law', the MET said.
THEY CALLED FOR THE 'DEATH' OF PRINCE HARRY AND HIS FAMILY
The two podcasters were said to have called for the death of Prince Harry and his family and praised eight separate acts of terrorism in the UK. The MET noted that Gibbons' neo-Nazi online library contained more than 500 videos of far-right speeches and propaganda documents and had been viewed more than 152,000 times.
