True North’s Andrew Lawton is in London, United Kingdom to cover the contempt of court trial of British activist Tommy Robinson.

On the first day of the trial, the lawyer for the Theresa May government’s attorney general accused Robinson of making up his stories of attempting to verify whether there was a publication ban in place for the sex grooming gang trial Robinson was covering.

However, one of the government’s witnesses admitted that her office “failed” by not posting notifications of the publication ban in various required locales.

Andrew Lawton has the details.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
