'Tommy Robinson' is the sobriquet for the self-styled 'independent journalist', Stephen Yaxley-Lennon. This individual knowingly and pre-meditatively revealed and broadcast information concerning an ongoing criminal prosecution being tried in Leeds Crown Court in which a number of defendants stood accused of offences deemed serious and sensitive enough that the Judge decided not to lift reporting restrictions as it might lead to the case being compromised.
Yaxley-Lennon admitted doing this.
He was brought up before a Judge on a previous occasion for a similar cause outside Canterbury Courts.
Yaxley-Lennon admitted doing this.
He was given a suspended prison sentence for contempt of court and clearly warned he would go to prison if he breached the order.
Yaxley-Lennon admitted being in breach.
In Britain, any filming and recording of courts and court precincts is illegal under section 41 of the Criminal Justice Act 1925 and the Contempt of Court Act.
Yaxley-Lennon admitted doing this.
By committing these offences, Yaxley-Lennon jeopardized an ongoing prosecution thus risking the victims receiving the justice to which they were entitled. By doing this, Yaxley-Lennon risked these (now convicted) offenders being freed and being free to continue with these heinous crimes.
By admitting the above offences, Yaxley-Lennon admitted doing this.
Yet we have over 600,000 miss-guided people who seem to think that this individual can be allowed to behave in this way without control, conscience or sanction.
Political alliance and affiliation is irrelevant – Mr Yaxley-Lennon's or ours at this point.
We, the undersigned and law abiding citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, give notice to the Home Secretary, the Justice Minister, the Prime Minister and the Government of our deep concerns that this individual might be released from custody thereby making a mockery of those laws we all fight to uphold and the independence of the legal system. We urge the Home Secretary to stand firm on this issue and ensure Yaxley-Lennon serves out the time to which he has been sentenced.
