ROBINSON FREED: Tommy Robinson thanks supporters as he walks free from prison after quashing conviction for filming at Asian sex gang trial
https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/691222...prison-latest/

Quote:
Giving only a brief statement, Robinson said: "I want to thank the British public for all their support." He then sped away from the scene in a waiting car.

On the Free Tommy Robinson Facebook page a post said he was "over the moon" about the ruling and will be going on holiday with his family.

The Facebook post said: "Tommy just called his family from prison to ask what the outcome was - he said prisoners were shouting that he was going home but he did not want to believe them. He is over the moon."

Robinson was sentenced to 13 months in prison earlier this year after broadcasting footage of trial defendants on social media.

He claimed he was “reporting” on a grooming trial involving 28 Asian men.

However, during his Facebook Live stream he referred to the defendants’ religion, the ethnicity of the alleged victims, the costs of the prosecutions and questioned why publication was prohibited.

The judge also said that he considered it a “seriously aggravating factor” that Robinson was asking people to share his video, legal documents explain.

But the 35-year-old is now a free man again after the Court of Appeal ruled there were technical flaws in the ruling of the judge who jailed him.

The original judge was found to have "rushed" Robinson’s trial and as a result the court did not hear which parts of his offending footage was problematic.

This meant that he could not defend himself properly, the Court of Appeal heard.
Forgive the source, but at this early date they are the first to report on it. This was quite the firestorm of a story when it broke. As he was released on a technicality the whole matter still remains to be settled. One thing about this case that strikes me is that you have the Brit justice system coming up against the modern era and the internet/social media. Plenty of fireworks ahead.

I was so glad to learn of this today! He basically had no trial and apparently went before an activist judge who sentenced him to prison even though he didn't commit a crime (except perhaps under Sharia law, which is NOT UK law).

Here are some details from an email I received from Rebel Media this morning:

Quote:
The court of appeal, led by the Lord Chief Justice himself, ruled that Tommy’s conviction of contempt of court, back in May in Leeds, was legally improper.

I have now had a chance to go through the court’s detailed reasons. They are stunning. It is an absolute vindication of Tommy — and a devastating rebuke to the injustices he has suffered!

The court found that:

* Tommy should not have been put on trial that same day
* Tommy’s lawyer did not have proper time to prepare his case
* the judge in Leeds never clearly presented what Tommy had allegedly done wrong
* the judge did not watch the entire video of Tommy, that supposedly was proof of his contempt
* the judge did not follow the criminal procedure rules
* the sentence was disproportionate; and
* Tommy’s treatment in prison was inappropriate

It was staggering. Everything Tommy has ever said about the system being unfairly rigged against him was proved true — by no-one less than the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales!

The court said the entire Leeds contempt hearing has to be done again — but it’s not certain that the Attorney General will even choose to do that, given how badly they’ve been trounced today.

I will continue to file reports about this at www.TommyTrial.com, and I expect to interview Tommy himself later today or tomorrow — obviously I want to let him reconnect with his family, first.
It's so nice to see that justice was finally done in this case.

Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon (born 27 November 1982), known by the pseudonym Tommy Robinson, and previously as Andrew McMaster and Paul Harris, is an English far-right activist] who co-founded and served as spokesman and leader of the English Defence League (EDL), from which he resigned in 2013. For a short time in 2012, he was joint party vice-chairman of the British Freedom Party.

He led the EDL from 2009 until 8 October 2013. He continued as an activist, and in 2015 became involved with the development of Pegida UK, a British chapter of the German-based Pegida organisation (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West).

In May 2018, Robinson was sentenced to 13 months imprisonment for contempt of court after publishing a Facebook Live video of defendants entering a law court, contrary to a court order to prevent reporting those specific trials while proceedings are ongoing. That sentence included activation of an earlier three month suspended sentence for a similar earlier contempt of court. However, on 1 August 2018 this sentence was quashed in the court of appeals, and a new hearing ordered.

He wrote for The Rebel Media and wrote an autobiography, Enemy of the State, and Mohammed's Koran: Why Muslims Kill for Islam, together with Peter McLoughlin.

I think these types of young men need a second job, or perhaps should take up music or panting?

With all the flotsam in the political ocean, I had forgotten about this injustice of British jurisprudence.


There was once a group of "activist judges" we now affectionately refer to as "the Spanish Inquisition." If we are not vigilant and careful, it will happen again in modern times!


thanks guys.

Here are some more details about Tommy Robinson's unlawful arrest.

Quote:
In one of the most stunning attacks on the freedom of speech in recent years, Tommy Robinson, the independent journalist and political activist, was arrested on Friday after broadcasting an hour long video over Facebook from outside Leeds crown court.

As seen in the video below, the officers claim their charge against Tommy is 'suspicion of the breach of peace.'

Not even an actual breach of the peace, but the suspicion of.

When Tommy asks, "What does that mean?" he's not given an answer, but then told that he's also 'inciting people."

Here are the 5 Facts about this arrest that you need to know.

1 Contempt of Court Definition

Despite the claims of Tommy 'breaching the peace', he was actually charged with 'Contempt of Court' for his actions. The contempt of court charge essentially meant that the police were accusing Tommy of publishing material that could prejudice an ongoing trial. Though to look at the definition of the charge it's apparent Tommy is not guilty in any sense of the word.

According to the Crown Prosecution Service, the main types of the offence can be physically interfering in a trial, threatening witnesses or obstructing justice.

Throughout the livestream it is clear that Tommy never set foot on the court precinct.

2 The Speed of the Conviction


What's important to notice is that during the livestream Tommy requests that he be given his 'solicitor' or what we would call a lawyer.

Despite this, within hours Tommy was summoned before the judge while his personal lawyer was not informed of what was happening.

Instead, the court appointed a lawyer who didn’t know Tommy and wasn’t an expert in the specialized law of contempt of court.

In a matter of minutes, Tommy was convicted and sent to prison with a 13 month sentence.

3 History with Police

Tommy has a long history of being harassed by the police, with a couple officers actually filmed admitting that they've received orders from their superiors to stalk him.

4 The Gag Order

A court order was issued regarding Tommys arrest, which prevented the reporting of his arrest and the reporting of the court proceedings.

“What kind of police state have we become?” tweeted UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader and MEP Gerard Batten.

The story went viral after thousands of protesters descended upon Downing Street and were filmed demanding the release of Tommy.

5 Death sentence

Not only has Tommy been attacked multiple times during his filming in various cities across the UK, but he was also beaten nearly to death by muslim immigrants who left him disfigured and with brain swelling.

Because he is well known within the muslim community as being in staunch opposition to Islamic ideals, Tommy has been a target for violent muslim gangs throughout Britain.

A 13-month prison sentence for Tommy is tantamount to a death sentence as the HM Prison Hull houses a large number of muslim gangs, the likes of which have already threatened his life.

From the OP...

"Asian" is what the media calls "MUSLIMS" when they don't want to say the word "MUSLIMS"...

How many articles have you read that said cops shot a North American?...
