(LAREDO, Tx.) Justice Dept Court Report: A Bangladeshi national was sentenced Tuesday to more than three years in federal prison for his role in a human smuggling conspiracy to smuggle noncitizens from Mexico into the United States #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.05: This case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) with assistance from HSI offices in Mexico City, Houston and Calexico, Mexico; and U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Border Patrol, and U.S. Marshals Service.

#AceDailyNews report Bangladeshi national sentenced to prison for his role in a human smuggling conspiracy after a multiple ‘law enforcement’ agencies investigation that eventually brought Mohamad Milon Hossain, 41, to be sentenced on Sept. 28 in federal court to 46 months in federal prison. He pleaded guilty March 5.

“Today’s sentencing is a great example of how Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) uses its worldwide resources and interagency partnerships to bring international criminals like Mohamad Milon Hossain to justice in the United States,” said Special Agent in Charge Shane Folden, HSI San Antonio. “Hossain was a key facilitator and smuggler of Bangladeshi nationals and his actions put our national security at risk. HSI is committed to working with its domestic and international partners to combat this type of crime throughout the globe.”

“This human smuggling conspiracy operated on a global scale and endangered the lives of Bangladeshi migrants,” said Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “The Justice Department will continue working with our law enforcement partners here and abroad to bring human smugglers like Hossain to justice and to disrupt these criminal networks that unlawfully bring migrants from across the world through Central America and into the United States.”

“This criminal placed profit before life,” said Acting Assistant Attorney, Jennifer B. Lowery, of the Southern District of Texas (SDTX). “Human smuggling like Hossain often put migrants in dangerous situations, many leading to serious injury and even death. The SDTX is no stranger to this issue and will fervently pursue the battle, holding accountable not only the transporters, but any individuals who provided assistance along the way.”

According to court documents, between March 2017 and June 2019, Hossain, was residing in Tapachula, Mexico, when he conspired and assisted human smugglers operating out of Bangladesh, South and Central America, and Mexico to bring numerous noncitizens to the U.S. border in exchange for payment. Hossain operated out of Tapachula where he maintained a hotel that housed the noncitizens on their way to the United States. Hossain provided plane tickets and other assistance for the individuals to travel from Tapachula to Monterrey, Mexico, where co-conspirator Moktar Hossain assisted their illegal crossing into the United States.

This investigation was conducted under the Extraterritorial Criminal Travel Strike Force (ECT) program, a joint partnership between the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and HSI. The ECT program focuses on human smuggling networks that may present particular national security or public safety risks, or present grave humanitarian concerns. ECT has dedicated investigative, intelligence and prosecutorial resources. ECT coordinates and receives assistance from other U.S. government agencies and foreign law enforcement authorities

Trial Attorneys James Hepburn and Erin Cox of the Criminal Division’s Human Rights and Special Prosecutions Section are prosecuting this case with assistance from the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of Texas.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(LONDON) Press Release Statement Report: Housing Secretary AnnouncesLeaseholders in blocks of flats with cladding should be supported to buy, sell or re-mortgage their homes after the government agreed with major lenders to pave the way to ending the need for EWS1 forms #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – July.23: The announcement by Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick today (21 July 2021) follows new advice from fire safety experts that the government commissioned earlier in the year to investigate risk in medium and lower-rise buildings, which makes clear that there is no systemic risk of fire in these blocks of flats…

#AceDailyNews reports that a GOVUK Announces a Major intervention programme from government and lenders to support leaseholders which is a significant step forward for leaseholders in medium and lower-rise buildings who have faced difficulty in selling, anxiety at the potential cost of remediation and concern at the safety of their homes and it comes following expert advice that the forms should no longer be needed on buildings below 18 metres.

Press Release GOVUK

  • Advice from independent expert group finds there is no systemic risk of fire in blocks of flats under 18 metres
  • States that residents need to be reassured on safety and recommends an urgent move to a proportionate approach to low and medium-rise buildings
  • Following the expert advice, government sets out that EWS1 forms should not be requested for buildings below 18 metres
  • Major lenders welcome the move, paving the way for EWS1 forms to no longer be needed, which should free leaseholders from cost and delay and provide confidence to the housing market

The report recommends that residents are reassured as to safety, and a more proportionate approach is urgently instituted, requiring action by all market participants.

A group of major high street lenders has committed to review their practices following the new advice; HSBC UK, Barclays, Lloyds Banking Group and others have said that the expert report and government statement paves the way for EWS1 forms to no longer be required for buildings below 18 metres and will help further unlock the housing market.

The government welcomes their support but is now calling on others to demonstrate leadership by working rapidly to update guidance and policies in line with the expert advice.

The expert advice was commissioned by the Secretary of State after witnessing what Dame Judith Hackitt, Chair of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety, has described as extreme risk aversion, which has left leaseholders across the country receiving costly bills for remediation that is not necessary.

It states that fire risks should be managed wherever possible through measures such as alarm systems or sprinklers, and that the overwhelming majority of medium and low- rise buildings (those under 18m) with cladding should not require expensive remediation.

The intervention is designed to reduce needless and costly remediation in lower rise buildings and is part of wider efforts to restore balance to the market, helping flat owners to buy, sell or re-mortgage homes.

Risk to life in blocks of flats remains very low. The number of fires in homes in England has been on a general downward trend for many years, reaching an all-time low last year. 91% were in houses, bungalows, converted or low rise flats, while only 9% were in blocks of flats of four storeys or more.

The government is already fully funding the cost of replacing unsafe cladding on all buildings over 18 metres, through the unprecedented £5 billion Building Safety Fund, and has been clear with building owners, lenders and the industry throughout that they must take a proportionate response to fire safety and enable homeowners to get on with their lives.

Today’s announcement – outlined by the Secretary of State during the second reading of the Building Safety Bill – demonstrates that the industry should now be actively taking an evidence-based approach to fire safety.

The move has been backed by the National Fire Chiefs Council and the Institution of Fire Engineers.

Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick said:

Today’s announcement is a significant step forward for leaseholders in medium and lower-rise buildings who have faced difficulty in selling, anxiety at the potential cost of remediation and concern at the safety of their homes.

While we are strengthening the overall regulatory system, leaseholders cannot remain stuck in homes they cannot sell because of excessive industry caution, nor should they feel that they are living in homes that are unsafe, when the evidence demonstrates otherwise.

That’s why I commissioned an expert group to further examine the issue, and have already agreed with many major lenders that lower-rise buildings will no longer need an EWS1 form, and the presumption should be that these homes can be bought and sold as normal.

We hope that this intervention will help restore balance to the market and provide reassurance for existing and aspiring homeowners alike. The government has made its position very clear and I urge the rest of the market to show leadership and endorse this propionate, evidence based, safety approach.

There is a longstanding legal duty on the Responsible Person for all purpose-built blocks of flats to have an up-to-date fire risk assessment. Moving forward, where the Responsible Person has identified fire safety issues they should update their fire risk assessments to determine any actions required. This could include measures such as installing sprinklers or alarms and in exceptional cases, remediation to ensure buildings are safe and people feel safe.

To help with this, new guidance for the risk assessment of external wall systems will be introduced. The PAS9980 will ensure that fire risk assessments are consistent, proportionate to risk and actions to manage risk are cost-effective, and the Consolidated Advice Note will be withdrawn.

For buildings under 18m which do require remediation, the government will introduce a financing scheme so that no leaseholder will have to pay more than £50 a month for the cost of replacing unsafe cladding. Further details of this scheme will be set out in due course.

Welcoming the support from the fire safety profession and from major lenders, Dame Judith Hackitt said:

I am pleased to see the support and commitment to returning to an evidence-based proportionate approach to fire and building safety. It’s critical, given the significant – and in many cases unnecessary – impact this is having on people who live in and own homes in blocks of flats.

What’s needed now is for the remaining bodies and lenders to get onboard so we have a collective, fact-based system that is reflective of the reality of the situation and reassures leaseholders that they, their homes and their investments are safe.

CEO of the Institution of Fire Engineers, Steve Hamm, said:

The IFE supports the expert statement issued today. We expect this will lead to a significant reduction in the demand for the EWS1 process from mortgage valuers, particularly for buildings under 18m in height.

Today’s statement will support competent fire engineers to use their professional training, judgement and expertise to assess buildings based on professional appraisal of risk. This should enable a move away from the often risk-averse and overly cautious approach that has been seen in many cases.

We welcome the commitment of all parties to ensure a proportionate and evidence-based approach to fire and building safety for all buildings along with the increased scrutiny to be provided by the new Regulators and the gateway approval process, which we expect will lead to improved levels of safety, providing comfort and reassurance for residents and homeowners as well as the wider market.”

Chair of the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC), Mark Hardingham said:

“We fully support this new advice and welcome the challenge to those who are applying an overly risk-averse approach in many buildings below 18 metres. We expect this will start to redress the balance where disproportionate measures have been put in place to manage fire risks. We want to ensure that buildings are safe and will work closely with fire and rescue services to apply the advice for buildings in their area.”

The government has also set out plans for developers of high-rises in England to contribute to the cost of remediating safety defects in a major step towards ensuring industry contributes to righting the wrongs of the past.

A consultation published today outlines that the levy will be applied when developers seek permission to build certain high-rise residential buildings of 18 metres or more in height.

The money recouped would contribute towards fixing historic fire safety defects, including unsafe cladding, protecting leaseholders and taxpayers from shouldering the burden of remediation costs.

The government is calling for views on the proposed design of the levy, which was first announced earlier this year as part of multi-billion-pound package to fix unsafe cladding on high-rise residential buildings, alongside wider financial and regulatory support.

The government has also confirmed today that the Building Safety Fund will reopen for applications in Autumn for any eligible buildings that missed the original deadline in June, with more details to be published in the coming months.

Further information

The expert group members are:

  • Dame Judith Hackitt, Chair of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety
  • Sir Ken Knight, Chair of the Independent Expert Advisory Panel on building safety following the Grenfell Tower Fire
  • Ron Dobson, former London Fire Commissioner
  • Roy Wilsher, adviser on fire reform, former Chief Fire Officer.

Read the statement from the group.

Read the government’s statement.

Very few fires spread from the room where they start. In 2019/20, 7% of fires spread beyond the room of origin in blocks of flats over four storeys, compared with 9% in blocks below four storeys and 14% in houses, bungalows, converted flats and other dwellings.

Find the developer levy consultation.

The government has also today published the Building Regulations Advisory Committee working group report which sets out the definition of the ‘golden thread’ and how industry can support the government in delivering safer buildings.

As part of the strengthened regulatory system set out in the Building Safety Bill, all high-rise residential buildings will have to have a golden thread of information, which will capture and protect all relevant safety information relating to the building.

The golden thread was a recommendation by Dame Judith Hackitt and will be used by the people responsible for the building to demonstrate its safety to the regulator throughout its life-cycle.

Full statements from lenders:

HSBC UK

We welcome the statement from experts on building safety and note the assessment from the parties to the statement that there is no systemic risk from fire in medium and lower rise blocks of flats. Our expectation is that the existing consolidated advice note will be removed and, with the endorsement from IFE, this means we will no longer require EWS1 forms for buildings below 18m, and consequently RICS guidance will be updated in line with this advice. We look forward to these changes being reflected in valuations from our RICS qualified partners and remain committed to supporting affected homeowners.

Barclays

We have seen and support the statement from experts on building safety and accept their assessment that there is no systemic risk from fire in medium and lower rise blocks of flats. This should remove the need for EWS1 forms for mortgage applications in any block below 18 metres. Our approach to mortgage lending and valuation has been and will remain proportionate, relying on the normal statutory process for blocks of flats having an up-to-date fire risk assessment to assure residents’ safety.

Lloyds Banking Group

We welcome the government’s statement on fire safety in multi storey apartment blocks and specifically its declaration, based on advice from relevant experts on building safety, that there is no systemic risk from fire in medium and lower rise blocks of flats. In particular, we welcome the government’s pledge to withdraw its consolidated advice note. We look forward to working with RICS as they update their specialist guidance, which should provide the certainty everyone needs. We also look forward to seeing the details of the government loan scheme that will provide residents support if they need any cladding-related remediation. We expect the government’s action will help further unlock the housing market.

(WASHINGTON) Justice Dept Report: A Texas man was sentenced to 20 months in prison for trafficking protected species and ordered to pay a $2,000 fine and be placed on supervised release for a period of two years after completing his prison term #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.26: Carrillo was the middleman between several Mexico-based suppliers of wildlife and their U.S.-based customers. Carrillo’s role as middleman was to pick up wildlife from a co-conspirator in Juarez, Mexico, and transport (smuggle) that wildlife in his car into the United States at an El Paso border crossing. His status as a U.S. citizen with a Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection card made his transits easy. Once in the United States, Carrillo would ship the wildlife via FedEx or U.S. Postal Service to the U.S.-based customers. On many occasions, animals died during transport.

Texas Man Sentenced for Trafficking in Wildlife: ‘Alejandro Carrillo, 62, of El Paso, pleaded guilty on July 9, 2020, to a two-count information charging him with one count of conspiracy to traffic wildlife and one count of smuggling. Carrillo admitted to being part of a conspiracy to smuggle wildlife from the Mexico into the United States via El Paso since May 2016’

The sentencing was announced by Acting Assistant Attorney General Jean Williams of the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division and Edward Grace, Assistant Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Office of Law Enforcement.

“Trafficking in protected species in violation of U.S. and international law is harmful to the animals and their native habitats,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Jean E. Williams of the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division. “The Justice Department remains determined to work with our law enforcement partners to ensure that these endangered animals are protected.”

“Wildlife trafficking is decimating much of the world’s natural resources,” said the USFWS Office of Law Enforcement Assistant Director Edward Grace. “It is paramount to deter and dismantle wildlife traffickers in order to ensure the sustainability of our natural resources, protect against zoonotic diseases from spreading, and so that future generations will be able to benefit from the world’s diverse species of wildlife and plants.”

Between April 2015 and December 2019, Carrillo illegally transported wildlife across the U.S.-Mexico border with a market value of over $3,500,000. Carrillo received a “crossing fee” for each border crossing, the amount of which depended on the number of animals transported, the size of the packages, and, in some cases, the level of risk of being detected by the authorities. In that time period, Carrillo was paid more than $198,000 to transport wildlife across the U.S.-Mexico border:

On Sept. 22, 2016, Carrillo picked up several reptiles from a supplier in Juarez, including a Central American river turtle (Dermatemys mawaii), which is a Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)-protected and endangered species, and transported them across the U.S.-Mexico border to his residence in El Paso. He then re-packaged the animals and sent them to a buyer in Oklahoma. The total value of the shipment was $1,650. Carrillo did not have a CITES import permit for any of the smuggled animals, nor were any permits issued in the name of any of the suppliers. In addition, Carrillo did not submit the necessary import wildlife declaration form to the USFWS:

The USFWS Office of Law Enforcement and the Environment and Natural Resources Division’s Environmental Crimes Section investigated the case.

Trial Attorneys Mary Dee Carraway and Gary Donner of the Environmental Crimes Section prosecuted the case.

#trafficking, #doj, #washington, #wildlife

(WASHINGTON) FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force Report: The Anti-Defamation League has fingered an online ‘white supremacist’ they’d been monitoring — and tipped off them off precipitating his arrest in a massive, multi-agent raid on his residence for allegedly possessing a gun in violation of his previous parole terms #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.18: Paul Miller, 32, was arrested Tuesday after the FBI’s joint terrorism task force raided the Riverside home he had been renting for a month after Miller moved there from New Jersey:

At Behest Of ADL, FBI Terrorism Task Force Arrests White Comedian Activist Paul Miller On ‘Parole Violation’ Miller is charged with possessing a firearm by a felon and witnesses say they saw agents remove guns from the house: Miller has an internet presence and often appears in costume ranting racist remarks.

After his arrest, the Anti-Defamation League put out this tweet:

“Several months ago, ADL’s Center on Extremism identified Paul Miller as a volatile white supremacist-accelerationist. COE tracked him to Fort Lauderdale and shared significant intelligence with federal law enforcement before today’s arrest.”

CBS 4 spoke to Carla Hill with the ADL’s center on extremism on Wednesday.

She says Miller started becoming more extreme six months ago.

“The concerning thing is he seems to get more extreme to keep his followers interested. He has several red flags. His violent rhetoric. He has weapons, he expressed the need for a race war,” she says.

At the end of his hearing, Miller expressed regret saying, “I’m really sorry about all of this. I really am.”

Like the recent case of Travis Patron in Canada, Jewish supremacist groups are exercising their power behind the scenes to get law enforcement to arrest people they don’t like on trumped up “hate speech” charges using whatever legal technicalities they can find.

And this is not a “conspiracy theory” — the ADL has openly bragged that they have “working relationships” with the FBI and Department of Homeland Security — and when the ADL talks, the FBI listens.

Let’s face it — if the FBI wanted to, they could arrest tens of thousands of violent Black felons on parole violations — especially for  weapon possessions — every day of the week, all year long, but they don’t.

Black violence is not considered “domestic terrorism” — and Black mass murderers “don’t count” among “real” mass murderers, according to law enforcement.

In fact, courts will often dismiss weapons charges against these violent Black felons — while allegedly pursuing convictions on more “serious” crimes.

Paul Miller has no apparent history of violent criminality — he was apparently arrested 13 years ago when he was around 18 years old on some sort of drug charges — and part of his parole agreement was that he not possess any guns, which is standard for felony charges.

Apparently, he violated the terms of his parole and was charged with possessing a gun in 2018 in New Jersey — according to the recent indictment.

And yet despite violating his terms of parole, his parole officer allegedly allowed him to leave New Jersey and recently move to Florida — which is very strange considering the “seriousness” of that violation.

But Miller has been on the FBI’s radar for years — for his activism protesting the lockdown — but more significantly, for protesting the apparent murder of Duncan Lemp during an illegal police raid.

But here’s where it gets even more strange — part of Paul Miller’s online act as the “Gypsy Crusader” — where he dresses up as the Joker, the Riddler, or one of the Mario Brothers — and trolls people with “racist” comments on the Omegle chat server — is that he often brandishes a handgun at people as he trolls them.

Even if that handgun that he uses in his act is fake — which it most assuredly is — it is certainly a stupid thing to do because if the FBI saw him with that gun, they could very easily be justified in getting a search warrant to investigate if it is indeed real.

And given how he openly uses the most raw and extreme language in his act — he must have known that he would get the attention of Jewish groups like the ADL who would look for any excuse to shut him down and get him arrested.

He has posted his troll videos on Bitchute — under his own GypsyCrusader channel — and he has a Telegram feed.

Paul Miller’s act is all about shocking people with “forbidden” naughty words — like nigger, kike, dyke, etc. — and in many ways he’s not unlike the Jewish “comedian” Lenny Bruce, who was famous for calling Blacks in his audience “nigger” at his live stand-up shows.

In fact, when Lenny Bruce says “nigger”, it’s not a violation of YouTube’s terms of service — but that’s because Jews openly admit hypocrisy and double standards are part of their way of live.

But, of course, the crucial difference is that Lenny Bruce had Jewish privilege — when he called Blacks “nigger”, it was for the “right” reasons — but Paul Miller isn’t allowed to say it, even though he’s made it abundantly clear he was doing it as “comedy entertainment” to destroy the social power that the word has, just like Lenny Bruce.

Despite the ADL’s attempt to portray Paul Miller as “inciting violence”, there is no proof whatsoever that anyone has been harmed by his online act — even indirectly — and a recent suppressed Federal government report admits that online “hate speech” like Miller’s does NOT cause violent “hate crimes” in the real world.

In reality, the Jewish supremacists wanted Paul Miller silenced because he openly challenges their Jewish supremacy and hypocrisy — and to the ADL, when you challenge their power, you are a “terrorist”.

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) TBI REPORT: Agents Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting on Friday Afternoon #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.14: At the request of 20th District Attorney General Glenn Funk, TBI Special Agents are investigating the circumstances in an officer-involved shooting that occurred in Metropolitan Nashville, Friday afternoon:

TBI Agents are Investigating an Officer-Involved-Shooting on Friday Afternoon: ‘Preliminary information indicates that just before 5 p.m., a 911 call was placed from a home in the 2800 block of Greer Road in Goodlettsville’

March 14, 2021

The first of three Metropolitan Nashville police officers arrived at 5:11 p.m. and, according to reports from the scene, encountered a woman armed with various items. The officers’ interactions with the woman, identified as Melissa Wooden (DOB: 3/8/88), escalated for reasons still under investigation, and resulted in an officer first deploying a taser then at least one of the officers firing his service weapon, striking Wooden. She was subsequently hospitalized. No law enforcement officers were injured in the incident.

The investigation remains active and ongoing, as TBI Agents continue to gather any and all relevant evidence, interviews, and information.  Throughout the process, investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney General for his further review and consideration.

The TBI does not identify the officers involved in these types of incidents and instead refers questions of that nature to their respective department to answer as it sees fit.

As a reminder, the TBI acts solely as fact-finders in its cases and does not determine whether the actions of an officer were justified in these types of matters. That decision rests with the District Attorney General requesting TBI’s involvement.

FEATURED BLOGGER REPORT: UK State Terror: ‘Fracksurfers’ jailed for opposing climate meltdown – //The Free #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Oct.01: Editor says here’s a really well written bloggers post from #TheFreeOnline on #Fracking and how the British government deals with those that fight against damaging our world #AceNewDesk reports

The British Government has overruled local councils to promote fracking and its right wing courts have begun to give prison sentences to anti fracking protestors despite firm evidence that it is climate and environmental dynamite

Blackpool Activists Jailed for Anti-Fracking Protest

by Frances Perraudin .. shared with thanks

Three environmental activists are believed to be the first people to receive jail sentences for an anti-fracking protest in the UK.DoARqKKXsAA8vrAFreedom for the #FrackFree4 frackfreefoursupporters.org

Simon Roscoe Blevins, 26, and Richard Roberts, 36, were given 16 months in prison and Richard Loizou, 31, got 15 months on Wednesday after being convicted of causing a public nuisance by a jury at Preston crown court in August. climate heroesAnother defendant, Julian Brock, 47, was given a 12-month suspended sentence after pleading guilty to the same offence.’

The four men were charged after taking part in a four-day direct action protest that blocked a convoy of trucks carrying drilling equipment from entering the Preston New Road fracking site near Blackpool.

Image result for cuadrilla activists jailed for lorry protest

At approximately 8am on Tuesday 25 July 2017, as seven lorries containing drilling equipment attempted to approach the site, Roberts, a piano restorer from London, got through a police cordon and climbed on top of the first lorry, bringing the convoy to a standstill. Loizou, a teacher from Devon, climbed on to the cab of the last lorry.

At about 3.18pm, Blevins, a soil scientist from Sheffield, also climbed on to one of the lorries. In the early hours of the following morning, Brock, from Torquay, also climbed on to a lorry in the convoy.

Fellow protesters threw blankets, food and water up to the men as they camped out on the vehicles. Loizou came down on 27 July at 5.10am after 45 hours. Blevins did the same at 4.45pm on 28 July, having spent just over 73 hours on his lorry. Roberts descended at 8.13pm the same day, after 84 hours. Brock did not climb down from his lorry until 29 July at 11.35am, after an estimated 76 hours.Related image

The site near Preston New Road has been a focal point for protests since the government overturned a decision by Lancashire county council and gave the energy firm Cuadrilla consent to extract shale gas at two wells on the site in October 2016. More than 300 protesters have been arrested since Cuadrilla began constructing a fracking pad at the site in January 2017.

The company has said fracking is likely to start within the next few weeks, confirming on Monday that 28 lorries had brought fracking equipment to the site.

Sentencing the men, the judge, Robert Altham, said he thought the three men posed a risk of reoffending and could not be rehabilitated as “each of them remains motivated by an unswerving confidence that they are right”. He added: “Even at their trial they felt justified by their actions. Given the disruption caused in this case, only immediate custody can achieve sufficient punishment.”Image result for cuadrilla activists jailed for lorry protest

He said that while the defendants were motivated by a serious concern for the environment, they saw the public as “necessary and justified collateral damage”.

Members of the men’s families sitting in the public gallery burst into tears when the verdicts were read out. They sang a song described as a “native tribal song of power” and blew kisses to them as they were led out of the dock.

Kirsty Brimelow QC, the head of the international human rights team at Doughty St Chambers, representing Roberts on a pro-bono basis, told the judge it had been a peaceful and political protest. She said the right to freedom of speech went beyond “simply standing and shouting” and extended to non-violent direct action.

“It is relevant that there is a huge amount of scientific study that points to the damage of increasing climate emissions,” she said, referencing intergovernmental climate panel findings that climate change would displace 75 million people by 2035 and lead to the extinction of one in four species by 2050.

Speaking outside the courts after the sentencing, Blevins’ mother, Rosalind Blevins, said: “We are all absolutely devastated by the sentences they have received. My son, like the others, was protesting against fracking because of his deep concern about climate change, which would more appropriately be called climate chaos … I am proud of him and of them for standing up for what is so, so important for all of us.”
