This morning, 10 am, I received notification from my solicitor that I am no longer required to attend tomorrow’s hearing at Westminster Magistrates Court.
Apologies for any inconvenience to those of you who may be travelling to London specially for the occasion.
A brief explanation is in order.
During the last hearing in July, District Judge Zani set two dates, October 4th and 25th. The latter was originally intended for legal argument. Tomorrow’s hearing was intended to clarify counsels’ position regards the prosecution expert witness statement relating to whether or not sharing a hyperlink constitutes sending an offensive message under the 2003 Communications Act.
In court, I was told by the judge that although I was not obliged to attend on the 4th, I was welcome to do so if I so wished.
However, shortly after July’s hearing, I received a hard copy summons by post to my address for the hearing of October 4th. As I have not yet been asked to enter a plea concerning the new charges brought against me by the Crown, my assumption was that I had been summonsed for this purpose. Last week, my solicitor confirmed that I would be required to attend.
Now, a day before the scheduled hearing, the judge has declared that I am no longer required to attend.
As I am already in London, I shall nevertheless be at the rendez-vous point tomorrow morning to meet anyone who made the effort to come and support me.
The coffee is on me!
Next hearing will be October 25th (possible trial that day or to be scheduled at a later date depending on the outcome of legal arguments).
Thank you for your ongoing support which is truly appreciated.
Kind regards to all,
As stated I am “double booked” regarding the 4th, Coffee? Long way to fly for coffee, whisky at minimum. Legally it appears a weak argument, do the Tories want a free speech martyr?
Come for the hearing on the 25th.
Will try to do so.
Good news Alison, I think they realise by pursuing this case they will be exposing themselves too much and it may cause a backlash.
They’ve been busy getting legislation passed to silence not just you, but anyone with a brain.
People will not stand for it, PC has had its day and we’re all tired of it.
I’m glad you don’t have to attend, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t, listen in from the gallery, you may miss something important.
Updating this in light of Alison’s arrest. Own goal for CAA? Many in the Jewish community feel that the prosecution is counterproductive.
No we don’t. We are thrilled and relieved that finally someone is listening to us.
You are right. She would have missed something important – being arrested for bail breaches! Currently in a cell in Derbyshire where she belongs. Who are ‘they’ Robert? Are you talking about Jewish people? That makes you as bad as her and shunned by decent people.
If you are conflating ‘Jewish people’ with pro-Zionist, pro-Israeli activists, who try to close down free speech, freedom of thought and above all any form of criticism of Israel or its policies, then I think you are wrong. Decent people know the difference between the two.
By ‘They’ I mean the small minded contingent who drag everybody including Jews down.
By screaming anti semite’ at all and sundry doesn’t mean anything, I can assure you I don’t hate my self.
What you Sarah and what you stand for is an illusion, there has never in history been an Israeli who is a Jew!
Just let that sink in.
Never ever ever got it!
Now then! Alison has made some songs you don’t like, there are plenty of artists and songs who’s content is way more offensive, but we don’t hear you bleating on about them do we?
So do us all a favour keep your thoughts to yourself.
So what’s news? Alison banged up now until her trial?

Surely the Criminal Justice system must have better things to do than pursue Censorship of such a trivial type. http://letthemconfectsweeterlies.blogspot.com/2017/10/anti-semitic-blogger-who-called.html
