Sure all the #FreeTommy people who sent in donations for Tommy's legal fees will be delighted to see him sunning himself in a 5 star hotel in the Canaries.... for two weeks.…
Wanted to knock off a Tommy Robinson holiday diary but I suppose it writes itself. And I'm too flipping busy...
This is Lutz Bachmann the guy Yaxley Lennon aka Tommy Robinson was hanging out with in Tenerife. He's barred entry from the UK because he's a hate preacher.

As promised.

Tommy Robinsonwas jailed for reporting on a criminal trial.

That is almost inconceivable in the United States.

We'll talk about the differences in UK and US law, what avenues Tommy's lawyers might pursue, and why UK law should be changed.

A thread.

First, the statute at issue. Section 4.2 of the 1981 Contempt of Court Act allows judges to place "reporting restrictions" on particular trials.

This allows those courts to ban even *true and accurate* reporting about the trial.
The judge in the Leeds Crown Court had put in place just such a restriction on the underlying grooming trial that Tommy reported on.

I'm as thrilled as anyone that Tommy is out of prison.

That said, he is still in serious legal jeopardy. The contempt finding at Leeds was quashed for procedural reasons, not substantive ones.

Let's talk about what he faces going forward.

A thread.

First, the rationale for his release. The appeals court criticized:

1) the use of the draconian summary procedure,
2) the failure to specify the specific type of contempt and specific behavior at issue, and
3) the failure to fully consider mitigation evidence.
As a result, the case was not dismissed for time served.

The appeals court ordered a rehearing, because it believed that the contempt at issue was "serious."

Tommy will face a different judge, who may well throw him back in jail.

"GRANDES NOTICIAS ¡Tommy Robinson ha ganado su apelación! ¡Hoy estará en casa! Sólo tendrá que asistir a una nueva audiencia."
Gracias a todos los tuiteros que me habéis escrito al respecto!!
#FreeTommyRobinson #freetommy #FreedomOfSpeech #mayoríasilenciosa
El propio Presidente del Tribunal Supremo ha dicho que Tommy fue detenido, juzgado, declarado culpable y condenado indebidamente, lo mismo que su trato en prisión. Todo lo que se le hizo fue ilegal. Un auténtico preso político!
Ya está en casa!!!!

Tommy’s barrister has been going for nearly an hour now, so I’ll thread out some observations

#FreeTommy #FreeTommyRobinson
A big issue for Tommy is going to be whether his appeal(s) will be thrown out for being time-barred (filed too late)

As @ezralevant noted, Tommy’s team is seeking to get both the contempt findings quashed - including the one from 2017
The appeals were “out of time” - too late.

Tommy’s barrister is arguing that the shenanigans the government pulled with Tommy made it very difficult to put a case together, and, as far as I can tell, that the judges should use their discretion to hear the appeal anyway

Reflections on the revelation that Sir Brian Leveson discussed Tommy Robinson’s specific conviction for contempt of court with @JoshuaRozenberg on BBC’s Law in Action as pointed out on Kipper Central…
I’ve listened to the full segment of the BBC show and the entire package is about social media corruption of juries. He speaks at length about how important it is for the DEFENDANT to FEEL he/she’s have a fair trial.
There is a reverse irony to this: Tommy Robinson has had insanely prejudicial public reporting for a decade! There is no way anyone who has been exposed to the reporting ever since the EDL can know who he really is. #FreeTommy

REINO UNIDO: Hilo sobre los juzgados británicos.
Partiendo de la base de que la población musulmana en RU supone el 6.5% de la población total, veamos una muestra de las personas que están siendo juzgadas en distintas cortes británicas hoy, 11 de junio de 2018.
Esta es la página oficial de la que he extraído los datos:…

Buckle up buckeroos, because you know I was at the #FreeTommy / #FreeTommyRobinson rally today.

Yes, I was backstage, gahd don’t make such a big deal out of it...🙄

Let’s look at some videos and photos of how it went, shall we?

TONS of patriots out here today to defend one of their best lads.

Estimates, from what I’ve seen, range from 7,500-12,500. The general consensus seems to be that it was larger than Day For Freedom which happened in the exact same location just a couple of weeks ago.
Also note the different representation of flags and banners from all the different right wing movements in the U.K.

Including a cheeky little entrance by @GID_England towards the end of be video. Great group of lads. Making their first uniformed appearance, no less.

On police tactics and #FreeTommy demos.…
Ever wondered why there were high quality cameras in exactly the right place to get just the right pictures of Tommy "supporters" getting violent?

It's almost funny watching them try to use the same playbook they used on the EDL.
I'll probably do a periscope tomorrow morning on how the security services, police and other forces will try to to shut this down in the coming weeks.

REINO UNIDO: Hilo sobre las bandas de PEDERASTAS paquistaníes en RU.
Aviso de que el contenido es duro y puede herir sensibilidades.
@nickmon1112 ha hecho un hilo sobre las bandas de violadores de niños, en RU, q se nombran en el documental de la BBC “Tres niñas”. Si bien, su hilo es muy bueno, se necesita saber inglés para acceder a toda la info que presenta; así q lo voy a completar un poco en español.
“OK. Acabo de ver el documental de la BBC ¨3 niñas¨ - va sobre lo ocurrido con las bandas de abusadores sexuales infantiles de Rochdale.”

To those who support #FreeTommy / #TommyRobinson, from someone with the actual qualifications to know what they’re talking about. A THREAD.
I’m a reporter who witnessed Tommy both live streaming in front of jurors outside #LeedsCrownCourt and him being sentenced inside the court.
For justified legal reasons, the press have been *temporarily* banned from reporting on a trial that is being heard in the court, but *will* report on it later this year. At the moment, we cannot even say which trial this is.

Dear Judge,

How well did arresting Tommy Robinson during a livestream help you keep your trial quiet? #FreeTommy
Dear Judge,

Bit late now but here’s what you should have done.

Walk up to Tommy Robinson and on his livestream explain why you had a problem with his actions.

Explain your court’s rules for coverage.

Inform people.

Talk before using power of the State. #FreeTommy
Dear Judge

Instead of taking a brilliant chance to inform over 10,000 live viewers and millions more later how reporting restrictions work in the UK, you picked up the MASSIVE power, backed by guns and armies and courts and prisons and threw it at Tommy Robinson.

Thread on Tommy Robinson and UK Law:

1) Tommy Robinson was arrested last Friday for "Breaching The Peace" outside of a courtroom. Inside the court, jurors were considering verdicts for the defendants that Tommy was recording. #FreeTommy #FreeTommyRobinson #FreeSpeech
2) Here are the cases and the schedule. Because the grooming gang was so large, there are three total cases. Two of them are shown here with the current schedule.
3) The Jury had retired to consider the verdict. Knowing this, Tommy pointed out the overnight bags of the defendants when they were entering the courthouse. Tommy suspected the verdicts were in and would be delivered on that day.

This thread from @lizziedearden does a much better job than I did at explaining contempt law and reporting restrictions in the UK. (hat tip, again, to the tireless @nickmon1112)

Let's talk reporting restrictions.

#FreeTommy #FreeTommyRobinson

Yesterday I found reporting restrictions nearly incomprehensible. They seem like an obvious affront to freedom of the press.

From the British perspective - our system is equally incomprehensible, because allowing the media to sensationalize cases makes trials unfair.
And, really, the British have a point.

Think about the Harvey Weinstein case. He's been effectively convicted in the eyes of the entire public before his trial has even started. Can you imagine any jurors really coming in as a blank slate?

Hoy continuaba uno de los juicios a las bandas de pederastias paquistaníes que han asolado RU durante décadas.
Tommy Robinson ha sido detenido en la puerta de los juzgados de Leeds, por estar retransmitiendo en directo la llegada de los acusados.
"Tommy nos advirtió sobre estas bandas de violadores.
Os reísteis de él y le llamasteis racista.
Tommy morirá en prisión a manos de estas bandas.
Os reiréis y diréis que le está bien empleado.
Entonces recordaréis que tenéis UNA HIJA"
El enlace anterior, de Katie, podemos escuchar a una víctima de estas bandas, que llamó al programa de radio de Katie, para contar como las autoridades la habían amenazado con acusarla de racismo cuando intentó denunciar los abusos de los que era víctima. Llegó a tener un bebé...

The judge in Tommy Robinson's case, Denise Marson, pulled a neat trick today.

She threw him in jail for 13 months, and banned anyone in the UK from talking about it.

A thread on how she did it. (h/t @nickmon1112)

#FreeTommy #FreeTommyRobinson
A year ago, Tommy was convicted of Contempt of Court for filming 4 defendants who were alleged to have gang-raped a young woman. His sentence was suspended.…
Tommy argued that he didn't intend to derail the trial.

Under UK law, that doesn't matter - there is *strict liability* for *criminal* contempt charges.

Just going to add this news story to this thread for easy reference when all of the social media platform are taken down for contributing to the largest data bases of child pornography that'll make these pedophiles jealous
This looks like a good place to add another tweet exposing the Child Trafficking Pedophiles being brought to justice as spoken on 12/24

You think these rare occurrences are a coincidence?
2018 will be the year that pedophiles are exposed!
The unrepentant knee will bend!
Eyes will be open!
If the knee doesn't bend then this will likely be the result for more exposed pedophiles to come.
