Share this:

A man accused of planning to attack a mosque hated Muslims and believed there was a need to take action against them, a court was told yesterday.

Advocate depute Lisa Gillespie QC said that Sam Imrie had become “steeped” in right-wing ideology and revered mass murderers.

She told the High Court in Edinburgh that Imrie’s own statements “revealed his extreme hatred of ethnic groups and Muslims in particular”.
