Four protestors appeared in court charged under section 14 of the Public Order Act. One took legal counsel and pleaded not guilty. He will be re-tried at a later date and his bail condition was a restriction not to go within one mile of the Olympic Park and ice rink.
Three of the protestors represented themselves admirably and pleaded guilty to ‘protecting the community’, for which they received a £640 fine. They will not be able to pay this and in consequence will spend a further 4 days in jail.
