Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that on 26 April 2022, 4 May 2022 and 14 September 2022, Dr Benn engaged in peaceful protests within a prohibited buffer zone at Kingsbury Oil Terminal in breach of an interim injunction granted on 14 April 2022. It is alleged that Dr Benn’s actions amounted to contempt of court and resulted in a custodial sentence.
