TOMMY Robinson’s case for contempt of court will not be heard today, the judge has said.
It has been referred to the attorney general, citing Mr Robinson’s prepared statement which has been described as ‘controversial’
Tommy’s lawyers asked the Attorney General to prosecute the case.
Ezra Levant of Rebel Media said: “The proposed witness statement is quite controversial, and therefore the matter is properly put to the AG, and that he will not conduct the re-hearing himself! So this is being rescheduled.”
He added: “The judge is being very careful in his reasoning; I think he was ready to do a proper job; but Tommy’s issues, prospectively raised in his witness statement, has convinced him it ought to be a proper hearing, in an adversarial setting, with cross-examination, etc.”
“All the evidence must be rigorously tested”. Therefore, he is referring it to the AG. So, no hearing today. The judge apologizes to the lawyers, noting “all the preparation that has been done.”
“So now there will be a 6th court hearing And likely a 7th” said Levant and where the decision is issued. “And an 8th, where Tommy surely appeals.”
“I doubt there has been a contempt of court case in UK history that has been such an odyssey. The man is truly being punished as a political prisoner.”
Andrew Lawton said: “This is the outcome that Tommy Robinson and his lawyers wanted. ”
This is a developing story.
