Piers Corbyn has once again been charged for repeatedly flouting the government’s Coronavirus pandemic laws in his pursuit to promote the conspiracy theory that the virus is ‘a hoax’.
In June, the brother of the former Labour leader appeared in court accused of breaking lockdown rules by attending two protests in Hyde Park the previous month; and last week was arrested at an anti-lockdown protest and hit with a £10,000 fine by the Met Police.
He has now, he has been charged with another breach of lockdown, said to have occurred on May 9th outside St Thomas’ Hospital in Lambeth.
It is alleged Corbyn, who was on an anti-lockdown protest at the time, “failed to go home” when instructed to by a police officer.
Corbyn pleaded not guilty at his June court hearing to the first two charges of breaking the coronavirus lockdown, and his case was set down for a trial later this year. He has also indicated his intention to fight the £10,000 fine, but has not yet entered a plea in relation to the charges against him.
