David Lucas, a farmer from Lakenheath, Suffolk, originally denied all firearms and explosives charges at Ipswich Crown Court in January and continues to plead not guilty to having an explosive substance under suspicious circumstances and possessing a prohibited weapon.
Lucas, who stood for the British National Party in the elections for the European Parliament last year, has previously claimed to have made and provided gallows to African countries with poor human rights records. The execution equipment he sold ranged from single gallows, at about £12,000 each, to 'Multi-hanging Execution Systems' mounted on lorry trailers, costing about £100,000.
Following his arrest, the idiotic Simon Darby, the deputy leader of the BNP, said;
'I think the police have got it in for him. I would imagine that it is to do with his capacity as an agricultural rural chap. It is just one of the many things that ordinary rural people have to deal with when you have got a politically motivated police force.'
