Еще English Defence League (EDL) founder Tommy Robinson had committed contempt of court was referred to the UK's attorney general during a re-trial in the Old Bailey in London on Tuesday. Robinson addressed his supporters outside the court building after the hearing and re-read his court statement to the crowd. «It is clear to me that my continued persecution and heavy-handed tactics from the state is because of who I am, rather than what I did,» Robinson said before being escorted off the premises. One of his supporter's claimed that the prosecution's referral is «a naughty game.» «They are playing with him to maybe mess with his head a bit more, and maybe not secure a nice Christmas for him and his family,» she added. Robinson, who has a string of convictions to his name, was arrested in May 2017 and sentenced to 10 months for contempt of court and three more months for breaching a previous suspended sentence. He was freed on bail after winning an appeal against the contempt of court conviction. Robinson is currently facing a re-trial over the allegations, which prosecutors say jeopardised another case.
