Council Tax Protester sent to PrisonTagged as: cuts local_communities repression
Nottingham City Council have succeded in their attempt to imprison pensioner Ross Longhurst for refusing to pay Council Tax as a protest against the Coalition Government's austerity measures.
He was sentenced today to 28 days in prison and was immediately taken out of court by six burly G4S persons.
It is yet unknown where he will have to serve this sentence.
There were ITV and BBC cameras before the court and an ITV reporter in the courtroom, so there will probably be some coverage.
Updates to follow.
