Judge Renee Pomerance listens to prosecutor Sarah Shaikh during the trial of Nathaniel Veltman in Windsor.


The prosecution on Wednesday read passages from a manifesto promoting white supremacism written by the man accused of murdering four members of a London Muslim family, gestures which the Crown describes as terrorist acts.

Sergeant Liyu Guan said that in a laptop found at defendant Nathaniel Veltman's apartment, there was a manifesto titled A White Awakening.

The prosecution read passages from the manifesto, whose title translates as A White Awakening, to members of the jury.
