Tommy Robinson, former leader of the right-wing English Defense League and anti-Islamist activist, has been set free on bail after successfully appealing against contempt of court charges. Earlier, he was sentenced for violating courtroom reporting rules after he streamed a closed process on a gang rape case.

In a video posted on his YouTube channel, the co-founder of the right-wing anti-immigrant English Defense League (EDL), Tommy Robinson, has pointed the finger at UK authorities over the way they treated him when he was behind bars.

"What they tried to do was to mentally destroy me. That wasn't a prison sentence, that was mental torture. If I was bitter and angry I would accept my own victimhood. I'm not their victim, I'm their target ", Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, underscored in the 5-minute clip.
