There was shock and disbelief throughout the land yesterday as justice was served in a British court of law. District Judge Ken Sheraton, sitting at Cambridge Magistrates Court, cleared Martin Jahnke of behaviour likely to cause “harassment, alarm or distress”.
Mr Jahnke’s alleged crime? Disrupting a visit to Cambridge University by Chinese dictator, er, premier Wen Jiabao. Apparently Jahnke blew a whistle, called the premier a “dictator” (shocking), before throwing his (left) trainer at the stage. How this was supposed to cause “alarm and distress” to a man who’s in charge of state-sponsored mass murder is anyone’s guess.
The real crime here is that the CPS let this farce go ahead; leaving the taxpayer to foot the bill. Again.
