Tommy Robinson Sent to Prison
Hey everyone, ok so when I livestreamed this it was immediately after the incident which made it pretty difficult to get everything 100% accurate – especially when I’m not very educated in legal jargon.
So just some quick corrections!
Tommy had a suspended sentence from a while ago for reporting on grooming gangs. He was essentially being watched to see if he “messed up” again by reporting on these cases. When he got arrested it was because he was livestreaming about another grooming gang case – however my statement about him seemingly being within his rights, just reading things that were already reported – still stands for now.
As for the media ban, that existed on the original sentence and is just being enforced again. What this means, is yes you can talk about it as an average every day citizen, but if you were to go to the court room, and try to get more facts it etc. like journalists who were in the court today – you would not be able to publish that without facing legal troubles.
So…. that leaves us to a lot of speculation – and it’s also why I have to make these corrections because I’m getting all my information second hand and not from the courts etc.
Hopefully this helps a bit!
