Former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson has been released on bail after winning an appeal against a contempt of court finding.
The 35-year-old admitted the charge and was jailed in May for filming outside Leeds Crown Court during a trial.
At the Court of Appeal, Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett ruled the case be reheard as there had been technical flaws by the judge who jailed him.
Robinson's solicitors said everyone has the "right to a fair hearing".
The far-right activist, from Luton, was not present for the ruling in London and was released from his 13-month sentence being served at Onley Prison, near Rugby just before 15:30 BST.
Speaking to reporters, Robinson said: "All the British media do is lie. I have a lot to say but nothing to you.
"I want to thank the British public for all their support."
Told ya my gung fu was good.
Thanks for posting.
Yes, praise God!
Youtube video shows the huge weight loss Tommy suffered while imprisoned. Lucky to have escaped alive....bastards will try again.
We r Tommy Robinson
“All the British media do is lie. I have a lot to say but nothing to you.
“I want to thank the British public for all their support.”
Well said. Thank G-d he’s free for now.
We won’t have long to wait, I’m sure.
Wonderful thing about Britain. They have the most worthy dissidents and revolutionaries. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, et al., Muhandas K. Gandhi, Menachem Begin, and now “Tommy Robinson”. If the UK is down on them, they must be doing something right.
I want to thank the British public for all their support.
Well said. Thank G-d hes free for now.
" ....... adopting a very Gap-like pose, with one hand poised on an outthrust hip, legs slightly apart, with my left foot on blue, my right foot on red, and my left hand on green, causing someone in the distance to yell "TWISTER!". "So what is it that you want?"
"What is it that we want? .... FREE TOMMY ROBINSON
And this is what BBC admitted:
"Robinson wasn't told what specific parts of his activity at the court had been potentially prejudicial to a jury - meaning nobody to this day knows exactly what he did wrong."
I really didn’t think he would survive long enough to be released.
” The far-right activist...”
Not far right . Bad old BBC .
Bail...for SPEECH?? F-ing tyranny.
Good news bump!
YES! Yes! Yes!
Oh, Laz...I could just make you a Sammich right now! Thanks for the Good News! :)
Not much has changed since Our Forefathers Ditched That Beotch and headed for America!
Thank Heaven Above for such BRAVE and FEARLESS men! :)
“I say, ‘Vote, Yes! Vote, Yes! Vote for Independency!”
I would follow that man into hell and win if he asked.
