If a reporter reports on a case that has a gag order in America, they're charged as well.


Kinda. The UK apparently takes tainting jury pools very seriously. The arrest isn't what is so strange. It is the 13 months that they gave him and the fact that they are not allowing people to report on it. I listened tp some lawyers talk about the subject last night i can try and dig it up you are interested.

That sounds like an excuse to undermine the public's right to be informed. I don't mean "right" as in some law granting it, I mean in a broader & more general sense than that. Did he actually release some sort of footage that he wasn't supposed to have?

Anyways, it would be somewhat reasonable if the reason for the censorship is to prevent the witnesses in a trial from being prejudiced, but only if the censorship is strictly temporary & the media is absolutely free to report every detail they want to report as soon as a verdict is rendered. Are the reporters there free to report whatever they please about the case as soon as a verdict is rendered, or not?

If this Tommy Robinson guy was kidnapped and is being held hostage for 13 months by that authoritarian kingdom government just for reporting that a trial is taking place, can witnesses in the trial be prejudiced from a reporter merely pointing out that a trial is taking place?
Thanks from Sabcat

Serves the little bastard right. Who wants to be reminded that councilors and members of the police force had sex with or colluded against the Rotherham victims.

Councillors and police 'had sex' with Rotherham abuse victims | The Week UK

Quote:
Two local councillors, one of whom is still serving, and a police officer have been accused of having sex with victims involved in the Rotherham child abuse scandal.

The South Yorkshire Police constable at the centre of the allegations is also alleged to have passed on information to gangs grooming young girls in the town. A second police officer has been accused of neglecting his duties after failing to report his colleague. Both claims are being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
Yes the article is three years old. But at least that little nervy bastard is sitting in jail now. Naughty Policemen and council members can rest easier for now.
Thanks from Sabcat
