Tommy Robinson Arrested Again upon Return from Family Holiday
by Liam Deacon
Tommy Robinson, the former leader of the English Defence League, has been arrested again, this time moments after returning from a holiday with his family.
Robinson was only last released from prison on 25 July 2015, after being recalled two weeks prior.
Helen Gower, his personal assistant, wrote on Facebook today:
Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, 32, was jailed between January and June last year, allegedly for conspiring with others to obtain a mortgage by misrepresentation.
Others, however, have argued that the charges are spurious, and result from him merely lending money to a friend in 2014.
In a report by the pro-immigration group Hope Not Hate released in June, author and hard-left campaigner Nick Lowles claimed that Robinson was: "returned to prison for breach of license (for a conviction for mortgage fraud) in what appeared to be an attempt by the authorities to prevent him from getting in the [London draw Mohammad] cartoon plot."
The National Probation Service refused to either confirm or deny the allegation toBreitbart London at the time.
After being released in June, Robinson accused prison officers of putting his "life at risk" after placing him on a "wing full of Muslims" and an attempted boiling water attack.
Dozens of death threats were made against him and his family upon release.
