UKIP Peer Malcolm Lord Pearson has written to Home Secretary Sajid Javid after the arrest of Tommy Robinson.
In his letter Lord Pearson said: “if Tommy is murdered or injured in prison he and others will mount a private prosecution against Mr Javid as an accessory, or for misconduct in public office.”
Robinson has been jailed for 13 months for reporting outside the trial of Muslim child groomers.
The former EDL leader was arrested after allegedly ‘breaching the peace’ by reporting live outside the trial at Leeds Crown Court.
The Judge Geoffrey Marson threw Tommy in jail for 13 months, and tried to ban anyone in the UK from talking about it by issuing a ‘media-ban’.
Tommy is being held at HMP Hull according to sources.
HM Prison Hull is a 1,056 bed Category B men’s prison located in Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire.
