Tommy Robinson supporters say he is in ‘grave danger’ in Hull Prison

The former EDL leader was taken to the Hedon Road jail after being arrested on Friday

  • 05:00, 27 MAY 2018

Supporters of former EDL leader Tommy Robinson are urging people to write to him in Hull Prison – where they say he is in “grave danger”.

Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Lennon, was taken to the Hedon Road jail after being arrested in Leeds on Friday.

He had been filming men entering Leeds Crown Court, where a grooming trial is taking place.

Robinson was arrested for allegedly breaching the peace after an hour of broadcasting.

As he was being bundled into a police van, Robinson was heard to say: He said: “This is ridiculous. I haven’t said a word. I’ve done nothing. This isn’t contempt of court. You are allowed to do this, aren’t you?”

Contempt of court is a criminal offence that can see people jailed for speeches or publications that create a “substantial risk that the course of justice in the proceedings in question will be seriously impeded or prejudiced.”

Supporters say he was taken into the courtroom and jailed for 13 months.

Posting on Facebook, Helen Lel Gower wrote: “Due to the reporting restrictions set down by the Judge I am unable to report on anything said or done in the Court room other than Tommy was given 13 months for Contempt of Court and immediately taken to Prison.

“Tommy’s Solicitor is meeting Tommy on Tuesday to discuss what next steps can be taken, if any, she was deliberately mislead by the Police who informed her on the phone that he was being released and when she asked for confirmation that he would be released and that there was no need for her to travel to Leeds they informed her that was correct.

“The Police immediately took Tommy to the Court and appointed a Court Solicitor who was useless.”

She urged people to contact Robinson to send “messages of support, money for postage stamps, phone calls and food/toiletries”.

She added: “Tommy is okay so far.”

Another supporter wrote on YouTube: “TOMMY will be well looked after in hull prison he knows all the top boys from Grimsby who know all the top lads in hull it’s our local jail rest assured TOMMY will be treated as a legend.”

Writing on Twitter, Kenny Hawks said: “HEY PEOPLE .. PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND HELP TOMMY ROBINSON … HIS LIFE IS IN GRAVE DANGER IN HULL PRISON … SIGN THIS NOW AND GET ALL YOUR FRIENDS TO SIGN IT …. THIS IS FOR ALL OUR FREEDOMS.”

Mr Robinson was serving a suspended sentence for committing contempt of court during a gang rape case last year when he was arrested on Friday.

He was handed a three-month jail sentence last May, but saw it suspended for 18 months.

He has also spent time as the joint party vice-chairman of the British Freedom Party, and has more recently worked with think tank Quilliam to discuss alternative ways of tackling extremism.
