A harassment prosecution involving Tommy Robinson has been abandoned after it emerged the far-right activist had “lied” to the police.
Prosecutor Peter Clement said Robinson – real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon - told police his fears of being attacked had led him to take his children out of school for 48 hours.
However, investigations revealed this was not true, and the activist did not explain to detectives why he had given a statement that was “not entirely accurate”.
“He explained that the videos that the defendant had uploaded came at a time when he, the complainant, received numerous warnings from the authorities as to threats to life and/or threats of serious violence to himself”, said the prosecutor.
“The police understandably and rightly inquired as to that and again that was found not to be accurate in that there had been no such warnings over the relevant period.”
Once again we see this petty drug dealer, and wife beater, break the law. It bothers me that there doesnt seem to be a consequence of this. He lied to the police and he lied to the court. He should be charged with perjury,wasting police time and slapped with costs for all of this.
