Elijah James Smith Moved to Lewes + 1st December Court Update

Posted by anti militarist on December 2, 2009

There was a hearing relating to the decommissioners’ case at Hove Crown Court on December 1st where the prosecutors failed in their attempt to join the case of the EDO decommissioning court case with criminal damage charges arising out of the previous month long rooftop occupation of Raytheon in Bristol.

The 9 people in the decommissioning case unfortunately didn’t succeed in their challenge of the “no contact” clause of their bail conditions and are therefore still prevented from contacting or seeing each other. Which is leading to difficulties, including the arrest of three at the target Brimar demonstration in Manchester.

Decommissioner Elijah Smith has now been on remand for over 10 months and is likely to stay in prison until the court case which now starts on the 17th of May 2010. He could do with as much support as possible. He has recently been moved back to Lewes. Please write to him at
