Hunt Saboteur Cleared Of Breaching Badger Cull Injunction

A sab from West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs has finally had the case brought against her for breaching the NFU High Court Injunction dropped. She was the only person in the country to be taken to court for breaching the injunction that was linked with the badger cull last year.
The decision was taken by the CPS to discontinue the prosecution, prior to a legal argument hearing that was set to take place this week at Gloucester Crown Court. The prosecution failed to provide a counter argument to the skeleton document that the defence had provided.
The sab in question had to attend court on four separate occasions, two of which were in Crown court and the whole thing has not only been a waste of time, but has also cost the tax payer a considerable amount of money.
Lee Moon, Spokesperson for the Hunt Saboteurs Association, stated: “Powerful companies such as the NFU and Huntingdon Life Sciences are misusing injunctions to try and stifle legal protest.  They use their wealth to create their own private laws.  It is gratifying to see that this case, along with almost all the other unlawful arrests during last years culls, has been dropped.  We look forward to seeing some substantial financial payouts from these unlawful arrests and we hope the Government and NFU will now realise that the cull was successfully stopped by entirely legal means.”
