Far-right hate figure Tommy Robinson is to be released from prison this weekend, according to his team.
Posts shared on Telegram by Tommy Robinson’s inner circle say the far-right leader will be released from prison this weekend, having been jailed in July for contempt of court.
Robinson was found guilty after he filmed and harassed defendants in a court case, despite there being reporting restrictions on the trial. At the time, Tommy Robinson said he was being imprisoned for “journalism” and said he was being targeted by the establishment.
But now, despite serving just nine weeks of his nine month sentence, it appears that Tommy Robinson will be released imminently.
His supporters were quick to welcome the news. Danny Tommo, one of his team members said he intends to make a welcome home video for the far-right firebrand.
Meanwhile, Katie Hopkins posted a video on Twitter following a visit to see Robinson, confirming that he will be released on the weekend and celebrating the news.
Tommy Robinson has consistently preached Islamophobic hate and has shown himself to be thoroughly awful individual. Katie Hopkins will be in the minority of people celebrating his release.
