SIX FACE COURT OVER HATE DEMO AT SOLDIERS’ RETURN.

Wonder if it'll be dropped by CPS?

SIX men appeared before magistrates yesterday accused of hurling abuse at British soldiers during an anti-war demonstration by Muslims.

They are alleged to have been threatening and abusive during a Royal Anglian Regiment march to mark the end of a six-month stint fighting in Iraq.

Banners bearing slogans like “Baby killers” and “Butchers of Basra” were waved during the procession through Luton, Beds.

In court yesterday were Jalal Ahmed, 21, Yousaf Bashir, 29, Jubair Ahmed, 19, Ziaur Rahman, 32, Shajjadar Choudhury, 31, and Munim Abdul, 28.

They denied using threatening or abusive words or behaviour and causing harassment alarm and distress at the protest on March 10.

The court in Luton was told a seventh defendant should have appeared alongside them but was unable to attend because his wife had gone into labour.

Ibrahim Anderson, 32, the absent defendant, also denies the charge, the court was told. All seven defendants live in Luton and are due to stand trial in January.
ACCUSED: Yousaf Bashir, Munim Abdul and Jalal Ahmed

The charge was brought under Section 5 of the Public Order Act of 1986.

Barrister Paul Harrison, prosecuting on behalf of the Crown Prosecution Service, said a trial involving the seven was likely to last five days.

He said that during the trial the prosecution would be playing video footage taken during the protest on March 10.

District Judge Caralyn Mellanby was told that the defence teams for the men would also be playing video footage.

All seven were granted bail until January 4 and they left court without commenting.

Yesterday’s appearance came less than a week after two other men appeared in the same court on charges relating to the disturbance.

On Friday Bryan Kelso, 27, and Kevin Carroll, 40, both of Luton, pleaded not guilty to causing harassment, alarm, or distress.

Both men were released on unconditional bail and will go on trial on November 23.

Thats hope the judge has the moral courage to throw the book at them! I can't help feeling that this incident was the catylist that started the Anti Muslim riots. If the Police are seen not to do anything then the public will take matters into their own hands. I'd also add IMHO it's not the Police's fault I think it has a lot to do with the present government in the way they've just rolled over and given into the wishes of the Treehuggers/Do Gooders et al, when they shoul have taken a harder linel! :x

Unfortunatly they may hold british passports- which should be revoked and then they should be deported.

If they dont like it here (well there) why stay?

So they aren't British by birth then? Not one of them? Asking a question that I don't know the answer to (but I do have a fairly good idea).

Shoot the muslim scum.
You must be joking? Something I have missed perhaps? Obviously you would not commit a religious/race hate crime in open forum? NuLiarbour Fingermen don't like that, you know.

Personally I will say 'I hope they throw the book at the bigoted, militant jihadi wannabee fuckwits'.

And to anyone who is saying remove their passports - won't happen, never happens.

Of course, all the over the top comments should be taken in a NAAFI-esque manner, recognizing that they are intended as dark humour, rather than hate-mongering themselves.

(Said for journos and lawyers...)

But, I DO hope the book gets thrown at them, because the law has to apply to everyone, or it applys to no one. No one group is "more special" than anyone else.

Unless you're in the People's Republic of Canada, where the transgender French-speaking aboriginal Zoroastrianists can do whatever the fcuk they want. :roll:

At last, some bloody sense in this country
don't get to excited, it won't last.

I have been predicting racially related unrest in this country for a while now.

This is incident is what "The English Defense League" cite as the reason for thief formation. Look at the effect their two demonstrations have had so far & the current hype surrounding their planned visit to Manchester in October to see how devisive this has been.

Like someone else has said, if they're aquitted then the public will see the justice system as protecting those who chose not to be part of our society and matters will be taken into thier own hands. Sadly I think they won't get anywhere near the punishment most feel they deserve & forsee stormy waters ahead.

in fairness, some of the savages at those cartoon just-about-to-riot "protests" with the signs saying "europe's 911's on it's way" or somesuch did get some jail sentences several years long. Am hoping for the same in this case

If only it were a Court martial and they were facing Colly. Shades of the kids arrested for murdering 3 members of the NIPS outside the Crum in 1976.

These disgraceful people can not even be truthful and plead gulity for using threatening or abusive words or behaviour and causing harassment alarm and distress at the protest to our soldiers .

These people should be totally ashamed of themselves for treating our soldiers in this way .

So what's this all about then?

The court in Luton was told a seventh defendant should have appeared alongside them but was unable to attend because his wife had gone into labour.
Can't his missus even join a political party without his help?

We all know they'll get away lightly.
I'm actually surprised they brought them in at all to be honest.
Makes you wonder what has happened to this country though for this to have gone on. Disgusting.
