The Age is running hard with the tale of Canberra’s Nicole Hanley in some strife having been connected to neo-Nazi groups online and in real life:
- According to the Wikileaks private message trail it is claimed that Hanley has published a detailed online diary of her travels to Europe last year, which included attending several neo-Nazi skinhead gatherings, visiting Adolf Hitler’s birthplace, placing flowers on his parents’ grave and collecting Nazi memorabilia.
“Hearing/joining in with so many hundreds of people chanting Sieg Heil together is something that will stay with me forever,” she allegedly wrote.
The online messages allegedly reveal that Hanley has also hosted international Blood & Honour activists at her house in Canberra and dated several neo-Nazi skinheads.
Hanley, a contractor through Thales to the Department of Defence, has been suspended.
For the curious, the Wikileaks page on this is available online.
