Judge throws out CPS challenge to innocence of protesters who blockaded London arms fair | UK Politics | News | The Independent
Protesters are removed by police after taking part in a road block outside the DSEI arms fair in 2015
A judge has thrown out an appeal by the Crown Prosecution Service against a decision to acquit protesters who tried to blockade the world’s biggest arms fair.
In April Stratford Magistrates Court ruled that there was “compelling” evidence to suggest unlawful activity was occurring at the bi-annual DSEI gathering in London’s docklands.
He acquitted eight protesters who had blocked a highway with the aim of shutting down the event on the basis that they were potentially preventing a greater crime from occurring.
