Adam Thomas who previously worked as an Amazon security guard and girlfriend Claudia Patatas are self-confessed racists who outwardly admitted to admiring Hitler. The couple was charged and convicted of being part of a banned group in Europe known as the National Action. A search of their residence in Oxfordshire unveiled Nazi memorabilia and KKK costumes.

A picture was also discovered of Thomas who is originally from West Midlands, clothed in a white hooded mask associated with the white supremacist group as he cradled his young child.

The Birmingham Crown Court jury was informed that the couple had named their child after the German dictator, Adolf Hitler. Adam Thomas later confessed to being a big admirer of Hitler.

Thomas met Patatas through the encrypted messaging app Telegram after traveling back to the UK in 2016 after his move to Israel earlier on.

Police stated the baby boy was under the care of the mother throughout the trial and after the ruling will be subject to normal safeguarding procedures. A third defendant was also convicted of being a member of the National Action.

The jury found Thomas guilty of an additional offense of having a terrorist manual, the Anarchist's Cookbook.

When asked about their son’s name the couple responded by claiming the name is ‘not controversial’ in Portugal where Patatas was originally from. The couple claimed to be planning to move to Portugal.

The hearing was carried out over a period of seven weeks. The jurors heard the proceedings of how the racist met and how they moved in together the following April. The couple joined the National Action after being ‘fueled by hatred and division.’
