White supremacists face charges

AAP Australia/June 21, 2005

White supremacist leader Jack Van Tongeren and two of his deputies in the neo-nazi Australian Nationalist Movement have made a brief appearance in a Perth court.

The trio are facing charges over an alleged plot to restart the Movement's racist firebombing campaign against Perth's Asian community in the late 1980s.

They are accused of conspiring to firebomb Chinese restaurants in the Perth suburbs of Willeton, Karawara and Ferndale between June and July last year.

57-year-old Tongeren, John Anthony Van Blitterswyk, 53, and Matthew Peter Billing, 33, have already pleaded not guilty to a charge of conspiring to commit arson.

All three men will appear again in court on October the 18th.
