Tommy Robinson handed five-year stalking ban after turning up at Independent journalist’s home
The Independent says Tommy Robinson has been slapped with a five-year stalking ban after turning up at a journalist’s home “screaming and agitated” late at night in a bid to stop the publication of an article.
The English Defence League founder “crossed the line between mere harassment and acts associated with stalking” by threatening to repeatedly return to Independent journalist Lizzie Dearden’s address, Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard.
Deputy chief magistrate Tan Ikram said he did not find Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, to be a “credible witness” and that he “continues to pose a risk to the complainant’s physical and psychological wellbeing”.
