Joshua Bonehill-Paine, who was charged with publishing or distributing material in order to incite racial hatred, was denied bail at Southwark Crown Court yesterday. The material in question is allegedly antisemitic and was reported to the Police by CST.

Bonehill-Paine claimed  to be one of the organisers of the far right demonstration originally intended to be held in Golders Green on July 4th.

The Jewish Chronicle reports:

 “A 22-year-old man has been remanded in custody until September after appearing in court charged with inciting racial hatred. Joshua Bonehill-Paine was denied bail at Southwark Crown Court on Monday. He is charged with publishing or distributing written material intended to incite racial hatred.

Bonehill-Paine, of Yeovil, Somerset, has not yet entered a plea. Wearing a suit, he represented himself during the short hearing.”

 

The Metropolitan Police stated that a “provisional trial date has been set for December 2015”.

“Since 2003, CST has been a stalwart supporter of ODIHR in its efforts to effectively monitor antisemitic hate crime in the OSCE Region. With its rigorous methodology and innovative partnerships with the British police, it is viewed by many as representing the gold standard for NGO responses to all forms of hate crime. I wish CST all success in its exciting new phase of work.”
