This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the UK Government or Parliament is not responsible for.

This isn't something that the UK Government or Parliament could do. Sentences are the responsibility of the courts, which are independent of the Government and Parliament.

You could start a new petition asking for a specific change in the contempt of court laws, if that’s what you’d like to happen.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
