The outrageous incarceration of Tommy for what the police said was “breach of the peace” now twisted into violating his contempt of court suspended sentence has to be overturned and the judge sacked.
‘Free Tommy Robinson’: Trump Jr., European populists slam UK over jailing of right-wing activist
The arrest and jailing of British right-wing activist Tommy Robinson for covering a child grooming trial has led to an outpouring of anger from conservative political figures in the U.S. and Europe — with Donald Trump Jr. citing it as a reason “for the original Brexit.”
Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Lennon, was arrested Friday outside a court in Leeds for filming men accused of being part of a gang that groomed children. Britain has been rocked by an epidemic of child sex scandals perpetuated by gangs of predominantly Muslim men.
Fox News reported Friday that he had been jailed for 13 months for contempt of court, but British media initially were unable to report on the sentence due to a reporting ban slapped on the case by the judge. That ban was lifted Tuesday after appeals by media outlets.
Robinson, the former leader of the English Defense League known for his acerbic criticism of Islam, reportedly pleaded guilty to breaching the terms of a previously suspended sentence from 2017 when he reported on a similar case.
NOTE: Very likely he pleaded ‘guilty’ in order to stave off a much longer sentence.
