THE GATEWAY PUNDIT: A 13 month sentence was imposed on the same day as Robinson’s arrest in May for filming outside a grooming gang trial in Leeds. On Wednesday it was struck down by Lord Chief Justice Burnett and two other judges.
Robinson’s lawyers said in a statement that the Attorney General will now decide if a Crown Court should hold a rehearing in the contempt proceedings.
Immediately following the independent journalist’s arrest and rapid imprisonment, articles about the incident were quickly scrubbed from the internet due to the British government putting a gag order in place banning any reporting on the matter. The gag was ultimately lifted after being challenged by media in the U.K.
Robinson’s reporting is heavily focused on Islamic extremism and he has had several run-ins with law enforcement over his live streaming. His imprisonment stemmed from an arrest last year, also for contempt of court, after trying to film Muslims who had been accused of pedophilia outside a court in Canterbury.
