BREAKING: Gerard Batten BLASTS “Police State” As Tommy Robinson Allegedly Given 13 Month Prison Sentence
UKIP Leader Gerard Batten has hit out at the “police state” following the arrest of political activist Tommy Robinson.
It is understood that the former EDL leader has been given a 13-month prison sentence following a live report he was filming of a rape/grooming trial at Leeds Crown Court.
The prominent free speech & anti-grooming gang activist’s sentence follows his arrest earlier today on suspicion of “breaching the peace” – a different offence to the contempt of the court which he has now been imprisoned for. Mr Robinson was given a three-month sentence suspended for 18 months in May last year for contempt of court.
Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, Batten said:
“I don’t have the full story yet but it’s reported Tommy Robinson has been arrested for a ‘breach of the peace’ for live streaming a report outside the trial of a grooming gang trial at Leeds Crown Court.
“Unconfirmed reports say he has received a custodial sentence. We await further information.
“What kind of Police state have we become? Someone who campaigns against the mass rape of children by perverted cult members is arrested for reporting on it.
“His book is entitled ‘Enemy of the State’ and he wasn’t kidding.”
