Here at Hoaxtead Research we strive to bring our readers the best, most factual and up to date news on the Hampstead SRA hoax, its perpetrators, its hangers-on, and its consequences.
As most of our readers are well aware, Rupert Quaintance will stand trial beginning tomorrow, 21 August, at Southwark Crown Court, on five counts of Harassment 4, “harassment putting people in fear of violence”. He pleaded not guilty to all five counts.
We will be watching the trial closely, and bringing you daily updates as it progresses. As with our coverage of Sabine McNeill and Neelu Berry’s trial last year, we’ll be publishing at the end of each court day rather than our customary “some time after midnight” schedule. We expect the trial will be of great interest to those who’ve followed the case this far, and we know many of our readers have been awaiting it with some anticipation.
We’d like to take this opportunity to remind our readers that once a person has been charged with an offence, it is illegal to publish anything which might conceivably prejudice their right to a fair trial. Therefore, we would ask you to avoid discussion of Rupert’s guilt or innocence, as well as any speculation regarding the process or outcome of the trial, even whilst the trial is ongoing.
It’s important that Rupert receive a fair trial from start to finish, and we feel strongly that no matter which way things proceed in the course of the week, we must not do anything that could undermine this fundamental right.
It’s going to be an interesting week, whatever the outcome. See you Monday!
