Derbyshire man jailed for extreme right terrorism offences

A 33-year-old man from Derbyshire has been jailed for over five years for extreme right wing terrorism offences after admitting he possessed several terrorist documents.

Adrian Monk, from Little Eaton, was charged in August last year by detectives from Counter Terrorism Policing West Midlands CTU after a warrant was executed at his former home in Rugeley, Staffordshire where the documents were seized.

Monk was charged with 10 offences of possession of a document containing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism – Contrary to Section 58 Terrorism Act 2000.

Monk pleaded guilty at a hearing at Birmingham Crown Court in March and was sentenced to five years and two months on Wednesday (08/05/24).

Lead of CTP West Midlands CTU, Detective Chief Superintendent Alison Hurst said:

“Terrorism documents can contain very disturbing and dangerous content making it illegal to have them.

“We will work to remove these documents to stop the propaganda and onward sharing of such material.

“We will continue to protect local communities by working with partners and the CPS to pursue and prosecute all those who show support for terrorism.

“We work tirelessly to counter terrorism. Our absolute priority is to ensure the safety and security of the people who live, work and visit the West Midlands area.”

Every year thousands of reports from the public help police tackle the terrorist threat.
