Journalist and free speech activist Tommy Robinson was freed from prison on bail on Wednesday morning after three judges quashed his conviction for contempt of court, RT reported.
The Judges came to the conclusion that there was no justification for the immediate imprisonment of Mr Robinson for contempt of court after he took down the Facebook post of a video of a group of alleged child groomers entering Leeds Crown Court in May 2017.
Robinson now faces a retrial for contempt of court after Lord Burnett of Maldon upheld a ruling that his initial conviction was “flawed”, and he is entitled to a retrial the, UK Guardian reported.
Supporters of Robinson as well as anti-racism activists both gathered outside Royal Courts of Justice and were separated by a line of police The Daily Mail reported. They have since announced on social media that Tommy’s release is a victory for free speech.
Since his imprisonment thousands have rallied regularly in London to protest his incarceration, including during the visit of U.S President Donald Trump.
