Free Speech – Review Section 4a and 5 of the Public Order Act

1 Comment simon 18th May 2015

The European Commissioner for Human Rights said that Liam Stacey’s sentence under 4a of the Public Order Act was “wrong”.

If a judge has the power to send someone to prison for a minor speech offence under this Act, then there is something very wrong with the Public Order Act.

I think the government should urgently review these laws.

Why does this matter?

It is important for civil liberties and free speech. If the UK’s judiciary is being criticised by the European Commissioner for Human Rights, then we need to listen.

The Public Order Act was not designed to police the internet.
New regulations are needed.
