The 73-year-old Piers Corbyn is going to court to stand for "violating the Covid rules".


Piers Corbyn railed against the "Covid con" this morning when he came to his trial for allegedly violating the lockdown rules.

He spoke over a megaphone and said to around 20 supporters who had gathered outside Westminster Magistrate & # 39; s Court: & # 39;If we win, all previous beliefs about Covid will be challenged. & # 39;

The former Labor leader's brother unfolded a banner promoting anti-vaccine, anti-lockdown and 5G conspiracy theories while dozens of police officers watched.

He is accused of violating coronavirus restrictions during lockdown protests in London's Hyde Park in May.

Corbyn of East Street in Southwark is denying two cases of attending a public gathering of more than two people in England during the coronavirus emergency period.

He arrived at the courtyard this morning with a plastic bag before hugging a pendant and addressing the small crowd.

He said, "Our basic slogan is" End the Covid Scam, Save Lives "Thank You" which made some people clap.

Twelve members of Corbyn's group, Stand Up X, sat in the back of the court to support the controversial weather forecasters.

His attorney, Ben Cooper, beat up the prosecutor for failing to provide evidence to the defense, calling it "abuse of process".

The court heard that this footage was critical because it showed that police arrested Corbyn for violating the lockdown rules while ignoring a known vegan activist.

Mr. Cooper said, “It is not correct to say that this was irrelevant material that could be removed from the schedule, it was clearly relevant.

“We have footage of someone named Danny Shine protesting on May 16 at Speaker & # 39; s Corner Café, right next to where Mr. Corbyn protested with a megaphone.

The same officers who arrested Mr. Corbyn stood by without taking any action.

& # 39; This footage must contain that. The fact that it was not disclosed is a violation of the Crown's duty.

"These trials should not continue as they undermine the integrity of the criminal justice system."

He went on to say that prosecutors deliberately "misrepresented" their case at the last hearing and decided not to disclose the documents.

Prosecutor David Povall said: “The Crown is clearly responsible for this. An apology if we were wrong about what was ordered.

"It appears to have been an innocent mistake by the prosecution on the day that was under considerable pressure."

But he claimed the mistake was "not on purpose" and added that "the defense has ample material to advance their arguments".

"Nothing would stop Mr Corbyn from having a fair trial today," he said.

Mr Cooper also claimed the police need to "be consistent" and asked why the Black Lives Matter marches are considered a reasonable excuse for lifting the lockdown but not his client's trial.

District Judge Sam Goozee has stepped back to determine if the Corbyn case should be dismissed.

The physicist was a staunch opponent of government restrictions and has been fined once for breaking the rules.

Large gatherings are banned under emergency legislation to fight the pandemic.

He was also arrested by police in Avon and Somerset last week while attending the Stand Up Bristol demonstration.

The troop had repeatedly warned the organizers that the event was not allowed and that there was a risk of increasing the spread of Covid-19.
