Tommy Robinson was found in contempt of court Friday for live-streaming defendants in a 2018 criminal trial. Dame Victoria Sharp, sitting at the Old Bailey with Mr Justice Warby, found him in contempt when he filmed defendants in child rape/trafficking gang trial and live-streaming the footage outside Leeds Crown Court in May 2018. Tommy Robinson successfully appealed against a 13 month jail sentence for contempt of court – but the case was referred back to the Attorney General, who announced in March that it was in the public interest to bring fresh proceedings against Robinson.
For decades the British government and law enforcement the rape and trafficking of close to a million non-Muslim tween and teen girls – for fear of appearing “Islamophobic” and “racist”.
British far-right activist Tommy Robinson was found in contempt of court Friday for live-streaming defendants in a 2018 criminal trial, Reuters reports.
Two judges found Robinson, 36, in violation of a reporting ban. The court will consider what penalty to impose at a later date. The maximum sentence is two years in prison.
Robinson was initially jailed for 13 months after filming the livestreams outside a courthouse in Leeds, England, Reuters reports. The videos revealed the identities of the defendants, who were accused of sexually exploiting young girls, while the jury was still deliberating.
“Posting material online that breaches reporting restrictions or risks prejudicing legal proceedings is a very serious matter and this is reflected in the Court’s decision today,” Attorney General Geoffrey Cox Cox said in a statement.
He was later released after an appeal, but an appeals court ordered a rehearing, Reuters reports. Cox then decided to start contempt proceedings against him.
Robinson, whose real name is Stephan Yaxley-Lennon, is the co-founder of the English Defense League (EDL), which has organized violent protests against Muslims in the United Kingdom for years.
Robinson was banned in February by Facebook and Instagram for violating the platforms’ community standards with his anti-Muslim content.
He was banned from Twitter and PayPal last year, and YouTube previously demonetized his videos.
