Appeal Against ‘Prejudiced’ Tommy Robinson Jailing Delayed

Senior British Judges have delayed a decision on an appeal by activist Tommy Robinson against a conviction for contempt of court, with his lawyers arguing there have been procedural “deficiencies” giving rise to “prejudice”.

The Court of Appeal is now expected to reveal a judgement on the independent journalist and street organiser’s imprisonment by the end of July. The case sparked huge public interest earlier this year after information about the case was wiped from the British media and reporting banned on the orders of a judge.

Robinson was jailed in May after admitting contempt of court by filming outside Leeds Crown Court during a trial. Reporting on the case of an alleged rape gang had also been restricted.
