Britain First’s Paul Golding Served With Court Summons During Jayda Fransen’s Trial

All of the original charges the pair face originate from a “Christian patrol” they performed in Bury Park, Luton, in January of this year.

During the march they handed out newspapers and confronted local Muslims in what charity Tell Mama said was an “intimidating” fashion aimed at “inflaming” tensions.

As a result, in August the High Court extended an interim civil injunction against Golding and Fransen, and forbids them from: 

(a) Entering any Mosque or Islamic Cultural Centre or its private grounds within England and Wales without prior written invitation.

(b) Being within a designated exclusion zone in the Bury Park area save unless that person remains at all times within a railway carriage travelling along the railroad adjoining Luton railway station.

(c)  Causing, permitting, encouraging or inciting any person to enter or remain in designated exclusion zone in the Bury Park area save unless that person remains at all times within a railway carriage travelling along the railroad adjoining Luton railway station.

(d) Publishing, broadcasting, distributing or displaying, or causing or encouraging to be published, broadcast, distributed or displayed, any images or films showing any person or event, on a date after the making of this order, within designated exclusion zones in the Bury Park and Town Centre areas.

(e) Entering a designated exclusion zone in the Town Centre area save in accordance with paragraph 1 (g) below.

(f) Causing, permitting, encouraging or inciting any person to enter or remain in the designated exclusion zone in the Town Centre area save in accordance with paragraph 1 (g) below.

(g) The Respondents are permitted to enter a designated area in the Town Centre for the purposes of, and only for the purposes of, attending hearings at Luton Magistrates Court and Luton Crown Court at which they are required to attend as defendants in criminal proceedings. They are also permitted to instruct legal representatives to attend such hearings. The Respondents must give the Chief Constable of Bedfordshire Police advanced written notice of all such attendances by 5pm on the working day before the relevant hearing.

In a statement, Bedfordshire Police said: “[We] today (Wednesday) served a civil notice against Britain First organiser Paul Golding in connection with a suspected breach of an injunction agreed on 11 August, which relates to Mr Golding’s activities around mosques.

“The alleged breach relates to an incident in Cardiff on 20 August, and Bedfordshire Police has worked closely with South Wales Police to investigate the matter. Mr Golding will appear before the High Court of Justice in London on 15 December.”

The incident in question saw the Al-Manar Islamic Centre in Cathays lodge a complaint after members of Britain First accused an Imam of being a “radical preacher”.

Golding insists he did not breach the injunction as he did not himself enter the mosque.

He has already been fined £450 in relation to the Luton march for “wearing a uniform with political objectives” under the Public Order Act 1936, a law originally enacted to tackle Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists, also known as the ‘Blackshirts’.
