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”.
Thousands of supporters booed and chanted “shame on you” after the decision High Court ruling was announced.
They want him dead. They’ll put him with the Muslims in prison.
Why aren’t the parents of the rape victims in the streets with pitch forks and torches?
Tommt Robinson said decision will have a negative impact on press freedom, and told fans: “I’ve been convicted ‘cos of who I am, not what I’ve done.”
Issuing a message to followers on his Telegram social media account, he also wrote: “This is the biggest political stitch up we have ever seen.
“So every single journalist that photographed Tommy going into this court – are they going to be in the Old Bailey and getting guilty of contempt of court?
The crowd began chanting “shame on you” as they pointed at the court.
The Sun: The 36-year-old was jailed for 13 months in May 2018 after he filmed people involved in a criminal trial at Leeds Crown Court and broadcast the footage on social media.
His previous jail time included a three-month suspended sentence for contempt at Canterbury Crown Court in May 2017.
But he was freed following the Court of Appeal’s decision to quash the finding of contempt made in Leeds.
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.
Dame Victoria Sharp and Mr Justice Warby gave permission for a hearing in May.
Yesterday and today, High Court judges heard the new application by the Attorney General Geoffrey Cox QC to send Robinson to prison.
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.
