According to the BBC a number of people who named the “Rugby rape trial” victim online are facing imminent arrest and contempt of court charges.
To give those unawares a summary the BBC dubbed “Rugby Rape” trial was where two Irish Rugby players were accused of raping a woman on a night out in Belfast. The two were acquitted but it emerged there had been some ungentleman like behavior etc. The Feminists jumped on it and made it into a social media circus from the first day of the trial to the present day.
There were huge protests with educational establishments and MPs taking sides in the case according to their political beliefs. The Police and the Judicial system are under a huge amount of very radical pressure from leftists in position.
There has been no enforcement of contempt charges on leftists or feminists in the case despite glaring examples by people who should know better. This is the danger of allowing Common Purpose to thread through our system like a cancer.
OK it was wrong to name the victim online and that was a total bum thing to do. On the other hand though the contempt on the other side, the moral gestation, the influencing, the protests etc were also wrong and contemptuous. If Common Purpose sends out the message that it will work with the lefties on these cases and bow to them like a birch in the wind, who knows where all this will stop.
In a previous article we compared some of these contempt examples to Tommy Robinson’s own speedy contempt jailing. This to the foreign observer (that now make up a majority of our views) is under the same legal system. A system blighted by a leftist/Globalist infiltration organisation called Common Purpose.
Get the latest on the one sided campaign of contempt enforcement.
From the original article on the issue.
Tommy Robinson was held in Contempt of court and jailed for 13 months recently for appearing outside a grooming trial and repeating public information from a local newspaper, he also attempted to interview what he seems to have believed were defendants. Tommy was pushed away though and there was no info garnered.
I don’t know whether this is legally contempt of court or not.
On the other side of the 2 tier spectrum though we have a clear case of Contempt of Court from Naomi Long (former MP), Northern Ireland’s most popular leftist and #Metoo campaigner with 30k heavy politicized followers.
During the trial of 4 Rugby players, two of whom were charged with rape Naomi tweeted out details of what the defence had said and added some feminist critique of the statements.
From the bbc:
“The tweet, by Naomi Long, criticised Frank O’Donoghue QC for remarks he made in court concerning the alleged victim.
He said: “Why didn’t she scream? A lot of very middle-class girls were downstairs, they were not going to tolerate a rape or anything like that.
“Why didn’t she scream the house down?”
On Twitter, Naomi Long described the comments as appalling: “I genuinely have no words for how atrocious this statement is,” she posted.
“Middle-class girls? What? Because ‘working-class girls’ wouldn’t care/don’t matter/think rape is normal?
“What is the implication of that comment even meant to be? Appalling at every level.”
The comment was re-tweeted 36 times and received 277 likes, the court was told.
‘SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF PREJUDICE’
After the tweet was published, the barrister told the court: “The trial is on a knife edge. The jury is just about to go out to consider its verdicts.
“The timing of Ms Long’s opinion on social media could not be more unfortunate, to put it mildly.”
He added: “Ms Long’s intervention is such as to create a substantial risk of prejudice.
“That this cannot be cured. And that, regrettably, this jury shall now have to be stood down and discharged.”
The case was held up for an hour. In the end, the judge rejected the application for the jury to be discharged and the case continued.
Two days later, Ireland and Ulster fly-half Paddy Jackson, 26, and team mate Stuart Olding, 25, were unanimously acquitted of all charges against them.
An Alliance Party spokesperson said: “”We are always conscious of our responsibilities when making any comment related to live court proceedings and exercise great care to avoid any remarks which could be construed as prejudicial.
“The tweets related to a comment from a counsel’s closing address regarding class and not evidence before the court, were entirely unrelated to and made no reference or inference whatsoever to the guilt or innocence of those on trial.
“Legal contentions alleging prejudice in the context of various remarks on social media were put before the trial judge and after careful consideration, she rejected those arguments, a view reinforced by the Attorney General.”
What we have in the UK is a system where leftists and those in the #CommonPurpose fold can benefit from working totally outside the law.
The Rugby players were all found totally not guilty on all charges.
In addition to this the Judge who is presumably #CommonPurpose has refused to award the defendants costs despite their being found innocent. The Rugby players have also lost their jobs, this is discrimination but again thats ok if the lefties give it the go go.
The BBC have long buried this Naomi Long thing and none of the Common Purpose outlets have thought to mention it. WEIRD.
