13 June 2016 -Heathrow two trial (Plane Stupid Trial)

 

Quite a while ago a couple of activists “defaced” posters by Heathrow Airport

which made claims about the economic benefits of a third runway.

 

For their heinous crime of defacing a couple of posters they faced trial by jury!

Or perhaps the real crime is disputing bogus claims about economic benefits.

 

After extensive delays, the trial started on Monday 13 June.

 

Nic Ferriday was invited to provide evidence which he duly did. But

the Crown Prosecution Service claimed that the evidence was irrelevant

and the magistrate prevented it from being discussed.

The people versus pollution - Pollution won

 

At the trial Nic Ferriday and others (including John McDonnell MP) were asked to be “expert witnesses”. 

 

But the magistrate, Ms Wright, may rule that she does not want to hear from expert witnesses.

 

Read the expert witness statement that the court may not be allowed to hear.
