Support the remaining Jobstown defendants

The second group of Jobstown accused were in the Criminal Court of Justice on Tuesday (July 25) for a pre-trial hearing.

Judge Melanie Greally stated that she will not tolerate any social media commentary on the trial – that anyone who comments on the ongoing trial will be in contempt of court, and that any sort of online petition in support of the defendants will also be deemed contempt.

Any public display seeking to influence public opinion or garner support can also lead to criminal charges of contempt.

This is a deliberate attempt to gag both the defendants and the general population.

The accused are back in the Criminal Court of Justice this Friday to argue bail conditions and stop the attempted gag on #JobstownNotGuilty.

Anyone who can get to the CCJ to show their support is encouraged to do so.
