A Poland-born Britain First supporter gave a Nazi salute and shouted ‘white power’ before ramming his house at a restaurant owned by a Muslim in drunken rage.
A UK court is now hearing the case which took place earlier this year. According to the details, Marek Zakrocki, 48, threatened to ‘kill a Muslim’ before his attack outside Spicy Night in Alexandra Parade in Harrow, which is located in the north-west of London.
Apparently Zakrocki was heavily intoxicated and he had already indulged in improper behavior before ramming his van. It has been learnt that Zakrocki has pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and beating his wife.
Prosecutor Denis Barry reported at the Old Bailey: “Mr Zakrocki had plainly, during the course of that afternoon, had far too much to drink.
“He assaulted his wife, drove off in his work vehicle, insulted a series of passers-by and then drove his vehicle at the owner of a curry house, breaking the window of the restaurant.”
He further added,”It’s plain that his conduct is very likely to have been motivated by his views about our diverse society.”
Before the attack, Zakrocki was also heard saying: “I’m going to kill a Muslim. I’m doing it for Britain. This is how I’m going to help the country. You people cannot do anything.”
After the attack, the police had to use force to contain him. Upon being searched, a kitchen knife and baton-torch were found in his possession. Police also found a Nazi coin in Zakrocki’s pocket, and a stash of Britain First flyers and newspapers at his home in Harrow.
Zakrocki told police officers he had no recollection of what happened after he had drunk the wine, and denied he was racist.
Judge Anthony Leonard QC remanded the offender into custody to be sentenced on January 12. He called for a report but cautioned he was considering a jail sentence.
