Tommy Robinson: Anti-Islam activist secretly jailed in Britain

Tommy Robinson being led away by police in Britain

However, such orders can be challenged by reporters - as journalists from Leeds Live successfully did on Tuesday.

Tommy Robinson, a British journalist and former leader of the English Defence League (EDL) has been jailed for 13 months, reports confirmed.

The judge who tried and sentenced Robinson said that his reportage could have caused the ongoing rape trial to collapse, with a new trial potentially causing United Kingdom taxpayers "hundreds and hundreds of thousands of pounds".

In footage which was played to the court on Friday, the 35-year-old, of Oakley Rise, Wilstead, Bedfordshire, was seen filming himself and people involved in the trial.

Further details about Robinson's status were not known as a judge ordered media to not report on the incident, according to published reports.

Leeds Crown Court blocked the media from publishing anything about Robinson's imprisonment via reporting restrictions.

You'll be able to pick up Mega Man 11 when it launches October 2 for Xbox One , PlayStation 4 , Nintendo Switch , and PC. Wily with the aid of a new Double Gear system which can expand his abilities with new powers.

Last Friday, all that came crashing down, when he was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court.

A strict order is now in place temporarily banning publication or broadcasting details of the long-running case or anyone involved.

Robinson supporters gave speeches and held placards, calling for Robinson's freedom.

"No one could possibly conclude that it would be anything other than highly prejudicial to the defendants in the trial", the judge said.

The sentencing judge placed a publication ban on the news that Robinson had been arrested, tried and imprisoned, apparently believing it would prejudice the case upon which the activist had been reporting.

The restriction was put in place temporarily to prevent reporting on the Robinson case prejudicing the outcome of the first trial.

But cancelling " Roseanne " is "like taking off "All in the Family" or "I Love Lucy" or Andy Griffith at their zenith", he said. Afterward Barr apologized, saying it was a joke that was misunderstood and laid the blame on the effects of Ambien .

According to the Daily Mail's "Hull Live" website, Robinson named the defendants and the charges made against them, "some of which are wrong", the online newspaper said. It's unclear where Robinson currently is right now, but the reality of how the United Kingdom is censoring its own people, for simply speaking out on certain issues.

His barrister told the court Robinson felt "deep regret" after becoming aware of the potential consequences of his actions. Video of the protests in the United Kingdom have been widely shared across social media, as has footage of supporters holding smaller sympathy protests in Australia, Tel Aviv and Germany.

He pleaded guilty the same day to contempt of court and breaching the terms of a previous suspended sentence.

The far-right were also critical of the lack of media coverage of Robinson's conviction - which they claimed was proof of a conspiracy to silence him.

The organisation was responsible for violent marches on the streets where members clashed with police and counter-demonstrators.
