Prison sentence was ‘mental torture’, says Tommy Robinson after release
Former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson has described his prison sentence as an attempt to “mentally destroy” him.
Robinson, who was released from HMP Onley in Rugby on Wednesday, said he was subject to “solitary confinement” and treatment that amounted to “mental torture”.
He was released from the Category C prison after three leading judges in London quashed a contempt finding made at Leeds Crown Court in May.
They granted Robinson conditional bail from a 13-month jail sentence pending proceedings in another case at the Old Bailey.
