UK: Britain First leaders arrested after Belfast court appearance

Deputy leader of far-right group Britain First Jayda Fransen appeared in a Belfast court on Thursday morning as she stands accused of inciting hatred during a speech she gave in the Northern Irish city last summer. Fransen spoke only to confirm that she understood the charges. The judge adjourned the case until later in the day in order to hear more information before imposing any bail conditions... Еще. After that, both she and leader of the group Paul Golding were arrested by the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI). Fransen faces two charges for a «threatening» speech she made on August 6 during a demonstration alongside the Northern Ireland Against Terrorism organisation, in which she called Northern Ireland «Britain's last line of defence» telling demonstrators that «Islam posed the biggest threat to civilisation.» Fransen was retweeted by US President Donald Trump earlier in the month.
