Following Sabine McNeill’s Saturday arrest at Holborn police station, there was some confusion as to whether she would be brought to court today, a bank holiday, or later in the week. We can now confirm that following a weekend in the cells, Sabine was charged this morning at Highbury magistrates court and released on bail. According to the impeccably honest source Angela Power-Disney, she was released with no bail conditions; we’ll be checking further to establish whether this is in fact the case.
Our sources tell us that Sabine has been charged with two breaches of the restraining order which was issued following the ‘not guilty’ verdict in last month’s trial, with Neelu Berry, for conspiracy to intimidate witnesses.
Those who attended Sabine and Neelu’s trial will recognise this crew:

We will, of course, bring you further updates as they occur, but as with any criminal charge, we are now bound by the rules governing contempt of court, and therefore will not be commenting, pro or con, on Sabine’s charges.
