Just Stop Oil Acquittals


At trial on 26th – 28th June, Hannah Webb, together with Hussain Hassan of Commons Law secured the acquittal of four Just Stop Oil campaigners charged with Aggravated Trespass.

The four defendants blocked the entrance to the BP Petrol Station at Clacket Lane Services. After a day of legal argument and submissions the District Judge found that he was not sure that the four defendants at the entrance were in fact trespassing, and acquitted them.

Three further defendants received very lenient sentences, with two being sentenced to an absolute discharge, and one receiving a small financial penalty.

Hannah was instructed by, and defended alongside Hussain Hassan of Commons Law.
