Would-be killer Zack Davies was a member of a sinister Russian ‘race war’ organisation and may have been on a government anti-terror programme’s watchlist before committing his crimes, a Daily Post investigation has learned.
Davies, who was jailed for the attempted murder of Asian dentist Dr Sarandev Bhambra Sandip at Tesco in Mold last year, was described as a self-radicalised loner during his trial at Mold Crown Court.
But 12 months on from Davies being sentenced to life behind bars for the crazed attack, the Daily Post has seen evidence that the 26-year-old was involved with Ironmarch, a Moscow-based international network that promotes race war.
And the Daily Post has also heard claims from well-placed sources within National Action, UK-based group of which Davies had been linked to and whose literature was found in his house, that he had been contacted by the government’s Prevent team.
… Dr Kumar Ramakrishna, coordinator of the National Security Studies Programme at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University and an honorary visiting Senior Research Fellow at an Oxford University college, said: “Basically … I am coming to the conclusion that involvement in extremist movements … like Ironmarch could be a risk factor for downstream involvement in actual physical violence.
