Of the 114 people arrested last Easter during the police raid on the Iona school, Nottingham, 26 have been charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated trespass at Ratcliffe on Soar power station. Over 10 months after their arrest, all 26 entered a plea of NOT GUILTY at Nottingham crown court on February 19th.
It had been hoped that trial dates would finally be set at this hearing. However, this has now been deferred until after one or more pre-trial hearings. The first hearing will happen on 20th May, and it looks as if the trial will be held in the autumn and may last for several weeks.
We will keep you posted over the coming months. If you think you can offer support, then contact firstname.lastname@example.org
