R v Alan Madden
Simon Parry prosecuted Alan Madden, an extreme right-wing “conspiracy theorist” charged with disseminating a terrorist publication, stirring up racial hatred as well as possession of a prohibited firearm following a raid at his house in Port Sunlight last year.
During the raid police found a semi-automatic pistol smuggled in from South Africa along with 384 rounds of ammunition, and electronic devices showing “extreme right-wing views” and an “unhealthy interest in firearms, weapons and proscribed organisations”.
Madden was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years in prison.
Simon was instructed by the CPS Counter Terrorism Division.
