BNP 'Koran burn' candidate Sion Owens due in court

Sion Owens, the BNP candidate in question
A BNP candidate for the Welsh assembly is due in court on Monday after police were passed a video appearing to show him burning a copy of the Koran. Sion Owens, aged 41, has been charged with a public order offence.

How can it be a public order offence when the act took place in a privately owned garage? Do South Wales Police believe in this prosecution or were they put up to it by the Crown Prosecution Service? Or maybe politicians keen on silencing the BNP?

It is a prosecution that makes a mockery of democracy. Let the debate begin for the Welsh Assembly on the hustings and not in the courts!
