A large crowd arrived at Horsham Magistrates’ Court this morning, as 9/11 truth campaigner Tony Rooke had his day in court.
Prosecuted for not paying his TV licence, Rooke argued that he could not give money to the BBC because of the corporation’s coverage of the 9/11 attacks on the US.
He said the BBC’s reporting of the incident and subsequent investigations made it complicit in acts of terrorism.
Therefore, he argued, paying for his licence would put him in breach of the Terrorism Act 2000, section 15, which makes it illegal to provide funds for a terrorist group.
