Rejected petition Release Stephen Lennon immediately, investigate the motive behind his arrest
Stephen Lennon aka Tommy Robinson was arrested for "breach of the peace", yet his court document state "contempt of court". His national profile and campaign against grooming gangs makes him a target in prison. How can a person be sentenced so quickly, while denying him his Article 6 rights?
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.
