THE JUDGE who jailed Tommy Robinson for 13 months admitted he watched little of Robinson’s Facebook live stream that was used as evidence that Robinson was in “contempt of court.”
According to Robinson’s producer Caolan Robertson, who was in court during Robinson’s sentencing, Judge Geoffrey Marson QC admitted that he barely watched Robinson’s livestream, despite it being the reason he was arrested.
“The number one most significant thing that actually caused a little bit of a gasp in the courtroom from a couple members of the press was when the judge actually admitted that he hadn’t watched the full livestream of Tommy talking,” Robertson said on the Alex Jones Show on Tuesday. “He only watched a very, very brief moment of it before he made up his mind [to imprison Tommy.]”
In contrast, during the arrest, the police told Robinson he was “creating a breach of peace” based on “the content of what you’re streaming:”
In other words, the content the judge never bothered to watch.
It seems that Judge Marson didn’t base his decision to imprison Robinson exclusively on the evidence presented.
Additionally, Robinson and his film crew were reporting outside the courthouse where the Muslim grooming trial was almost over, and, according to Robertson, they were careful to only report on facts of the case which were already public given that Robinson was previously accused of committing contempt last year.
