Elijah Smith 9 months on remand without trial

Elijah Smith, Tom Woodhead and Robert Alford appeared in Yate Magistrates Court today 17th September 2009. Exactly 9 months since they were arrested following the decommissioning of EDO in Brighton.

The 3 accused protesters are next in court on the 8th of October at 9:45am keep up to date @
