This short video explains UK law as it applies to the Tommy Robinson sentence. Tommy Robinson was attempting to out a Muslim gang of child rapists during an ongoing trial by filming the accused and threatening he would visit their homes.
For those searching Court records, Tommy Robinson’s real name is Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon.
An immediate powerful gagging order was imposed on the case, called a D-Notice. This made illegal any reporting on Robinson’s arrest, sentence, and place of imprisonment.
Without his personal lawyer present, Robinson was accused, charged, prosecuted, tried and sentenced within a few hours of his arrest.
QUESTION: Could Robinson’s case have been handled more sensibly with less of a draconian feel about it?
