Britain First’s Jayda Fransen and Paul Golding (a candidate to be elected mayor of London) were recently arrested (and released) by the Luton police on suspicion of wearing political uniforms while “leafleting.” Neither has yet been formally charged. However, the police imposed conditions of bail which make the pair de facto prisoners within their own homes. They can’t leave their places of residence for any reason and walk about. To reiterate, they have not been charged with the crime yet. Jayda explains what happened during the initial appeal in court and what the next step is.
Having lost their bail conditions appeal in a three-person lay Magistrate’s Court Jayda and Paul now must somehow come up with over 10,000 British Pounds Sterling in order to appeal their case to a higher court.
In American dollars that amounts to $14,068.50. And if they lose their appeal, they’ll be stuck with reimbursing Her Majesty’s Prosecutors for their time and expense. You can do the math.
I don’t know what the British Common Law is regarding violation of bail bond conditions. In Colorado, violating any condition of bail bond is a felony.
