Ged Doran Secures Acquittal in First Prosecution of a Far-Right Organisation Since World War II

Ged Doran, instructed by Eleanor Beckingham of DDE Law, represented a defendant charged with being a member of a proscribed organisation, National Action. During its peak, National Action bore membership of up to 100 young, white men from academic backgrounds who would regularly meet for demonstrations, dressed in skull masks, waving banners and imitating Nazi salutes.

Ged’s client was one of six defendants under investigation for allegedly belonging to the group and for involvement in the conspiracy to murder Labour MP Rosie Cooper and a female police officer. Following a six-week trial held at the Central Criminal Court before Justice Jay, Ged’s client was acquitted of all charges.
