Intelligence chiefs are concerned about the threat from far-Right terrorism. Undercover agents were ordered to infiltrate Order of Nine Angles movement. The British neo-Nazi network has been linked to murders and extremist plots. A government propaganda unit has been secretly working to dismantle a British neo-Nazi network linked to murders and extremist plots around the world, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. Undercover agents from the security service’s Research, Information and Communications Unit (RICU) have been ordered to infiltrate the far-Right Order of Nine Angles (ONA) movement. Intelligence chiefs are increasingly concerned about the threat from far-Right terrorism. Jonathan Hall QC, the UK’s Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, warned last week that the terrorist threat was increasingly coming from such ideologies that were spreading among young men through the internet. New MI5 chief Ken McCallum recently said that 30 per cent of major late-stage terror plots that had been thwarted by the security services since 2017 were linked to far-Right extremism, while Scotland Yard Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said ten of the 12 under-18s arrested for terrorism in 2019 were inspired by far-Right ideology. Whitehall sources said the RICU operation was set up to build a case for banning ONA, which is considered by some to be the most extreme far-Right network in the world. (…) ‘What they’ve done is successfully utilise social media and growth of extremist online forums to propagate ideas of terrorism, Nazism and sexual violence.’A source said RICU agents were infiltrating secret chatrooms, adding: ‘The Dark Web is no longer as dark as some terrorists and paedophiles believe. ‘Far-Right terrorism is a real threat, and this is an effort to dismantle it at its roots.’
