Reza Moradi still faces prosecution

From the Pub Philosopher:
Remember Reza Moradi? He was the man arrested at the free speech demonstration in Trafalgar Square, for holding a placard displaying the Danish Mohammed cartoons.

Like many people, I assumed that the charges had been quietly dropped. Not so, I'm afraid. It appears that the defenders of our liberty and security are determined to prosecute Reza. The case has not come to court yet because the police say that they are still gathering evidence...
This is a disgrace. Make some noise bloggers.

Update June 6. If you want to find out why so much effort, time and money is being wasted on prosecuting someone for displaying a cartoon, try emailing a few of the following:

Sir Ian Blair, Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police.

The Prime Minister (choose Law & Order from the drop down menu).

Public enquiries at the Home Office.

Tony McNulty, Minister of State for policing, security and community safety.

Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London.

Contact details for your MP. Sod it, why not ask your MEP too?

(A thought - if this case does go to court the guy who made the complaint will have to appear, which means we’ll discover who he is and who he’s linked to. That could be interesting.)

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know what happened to the bloke who demonstrated against the cartoons dressed as a suicide bomber? (not sure if it's the politically correct term to describe it, perhaps anti-imperialist martyr?)

He was sent back to prison for breaching the terms of his parole on a conviction for dealing crack cocaine. Knowing our justice system he's probably out again already.
