Neo-Nazi Couple Who Named Baby in Honour of Hitler Due to Be Sentenced

A neo-Nazi couple who named their baby in honour of Hitler are due to be sentenced.

Adam Thomas, 22, and Claudia Patatas, 38, were found guilty after a trial of being members of the extreme right-wing organisation National Action, which was banned in 2016. The pair will be sentenced on Tuesday with three other men convicted of the same offence.Thomas and Patatas gave their child the middle name “Adolf” and had Swastika scatter cushions in their home. Photographs recovered from a search at their home showed Thomas cradling his new-born son while wearing the hooded white robes of a Ku Klux Klansman.

The couple of Banbury, Oxfordshire, will be sentenced on Tuesday, concluding a three-day hearing which started on Friday.

Patatas, a wedding photographer who was born in Portugal, also wanted to “bring back concentration camps” and after a 7-week trial were found guilty. Former Army applicant, Thomas was also convicted of having a terrorist manual, named the Anarchist’s Cookbook. This contained instructions on how to make a viable bomb.
