A BRITISH Man who organised a rally against Muslim rape gangs in Sunderland is facing seven years in jail.
William ‘Billy’ Charlton, 53, was accused of ‘stirring up racial hatred’ by Police.
He spoke at rallies along with Tommy Robinson and described “immigrants” as “rapists”, “animals” and “monsters”, a court heard.
The Sunderland resident was angry about rapes being committed by migrants in the city.
A source told Politicalite: “They’re trying to do him for “hate speech” he’s facing up to 7years, but it’s transpired this week while he was on trial, another trial has run concurrently in the same building.”
Charlton allegedly tweeted about the trial of Migrants on Thursday night, and now Police have remanded him in custody for the duration of his trial.
Mr Charlton, 53, of Seaham, County Durham, told one gathering it was “up to us to fight” to “defend the people of Sunderland”.
A local grandmother was also arrested alongside him for “nothing more than filming his speeches” according to a source close to the case.
Catherine Haley, who is battling Bowel cancer and runs a YouTube channel exclusively spoke to Politicalite.
She said: “The Police came to my door, and said, “Catherine, we’re arresting you for distributing racial hatred.”
Catherine, 60 was questioned by Police, she said they asked her if she was a ‘racist’ and questioned her about connections to activist Tommy Robinson.
Billy denies inciting racial hatred.
The trial continues.
