Tommy Robinson will face NEW contempt proceedings over claim he filmed people in criminal trial and put the footage on social media, High Court judges rule
Hundreds gathered outside the Old Bailey in London today as it was revealed Tommy Robinson (left and right today) would face fresh contempt of court proceedings for filming outside Leeds Crown Court in 2018. The former English Defence League leader, 36, was jailed for 13 months in May last year over the allegation.
But a contempt finding made against Robinson was quashed by the Court of Appeal in August and he was freed from prison after serving two months of his sentence. But earlier this month Attorney General Geoffrey Cox QC said it was in the public interest to bring fresh proceedings. And after a first hearing today it was decided that Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, will definitely face fresh proceedings.
Robinson’s footage, lasting around an hour and a half, was watched 250,000 times within hours of being posted on Facebook. It was filmed during one of a series of trials of a Huddersfield grooming gang, which was covered by strict reporting restrictions banning publication of any details until the end of the final one in September last year.
