Bloggers Under Siege — Craig Murray Charged with Contempt of Court

“I know who leaked them [Hillary Clinton’s email]. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.”

“I can affirm that the FCO and MI6 knew that al-Megrahi was not the Lockerbie bomber.”

“Philip Cross has edited every single day from 29 August 2013 to 14 May 2018. Including five Christmas Days. That’s 1,721 consecutive days of editing. 133,612 edits to Wikipedia.”

The contempt charge falls in two categories:

i) Material published before the trial liable to prejudice a jury

ii) Material published which could assist “jigsaw identification” of the failed accusers.

Frankly, it is rather obvious that neither of these charges is the true motive of the Crown Office.

From Lockerbie to the Russia Hoax, Murray has of course upset people in high-places, including some who work for Intelligence Agencies.

This indictment is the basis on which they are attempting to put Murray in prison.

The indictment specifies up to two years in jail and an unlimited fine as the punishment sought from the court.

“The state believes it has finally discovered a way to put me in prison without the inconvenient hurdle of a jury of my peers.

Contempt of Court is just decided by a judge.

It is extraordinary that you can go to jail for a substantial two years with no jury protection and no test of “beyond reasonable doubt”; and on the whim of a judge defending what he may view as the dignity of his own office.

This really is the epitome of bad law. To use it against freedom of speech is disgusting.”

In less than 24 hours, more than two thousand people have given a bit of money to fund Craig Murray’s defence.

Some of these donations came from a few long term political opponents, who are appalled by this attack on freedom of speech, as well as several senior lawyers.

We live in dark times. But Truth will always win. Because Truth never dies.

PS — Because of these charges, it is unlikely that Murray will be able to blog about the upcoming Lockerbie (pseudo) trial. Just a timing coincidence? Could this be the true motive of the Crown Office.
