This is obviously temporary. But it pokes a big hole in the media meme that there was absolutely nothing wrong with the process and the miscarriage of justice involved. A very big hole.
“On Wednesday, the Court of Appeal ordered his release, pending a new hearing in his case. The court questioned the speed with which he had been tried and convicted, noting that it took five hours from the time of his arrest to a conviction.”
Mr. Robinson was arrested in May after he live-streamed a video from outside a criminal trial in Leeds, England, which had a news media blackout, revealing the defendants’ identities. He was sentenced to 13 months in prison for contempt of court, provoking an international outcry in far-right circles.
Provoking an outcry among anyone who cares about justice. Even as Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett conceded that there are problems with the case, the media is doubling down.
At the Court of Appeal, Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett ruled the case be reheard as there had been technical flaws by the judge who jailed him.
In his written judgement, Lord Burnett said: “We are satisfied that the finding of contempt made in Leeds following a fundamentally flawed process, in what we recognise were difficult and unusual circumstances, cannot stand.
“We will direct that the matter be reheard before a different judge.”
In short, all the protesters had been right. And the media was wrong.
Speaking to reporters, Robinson said: “All the British media do is lie. I have a lot to say but nothing to you.
“I want to thank the British public for all their support.”
All the media does is lie. Period.
