Earlier this year, group leader Paul Golding posted a video and falsely claimed a group of Muslims had celebrated the Paris terrorist attack.
Golding tweeted a video with the caption: “Oh look, a crowd of ‘moderate' Muslims celebrating the Paris Terror attack in London.”
According to the Evening Standard, the video showing Pakistani cricket fans celebrating a win was filmed seven years ago.
In June 2016, Fransen appeared in a video claiming a migrant camp had been set up in Sherwood Forest, a place made famous by the legend of Robin Hood. The local council called the claims “nonsensical fantasy” as there was no migrant camp, only an abandoned 'camp' created by local youths.
Fransen is currently on police bail and faces four charges of religiously aggravated harassment, Kent police are investigating distribution of leaflets and online content.
This evening, the deputy leader made a video appealing for the presidents "intervention" saying that she is "facing prison for giving a speech in which I criticised islam, this is evidence that Britain has become Sharia compliant."
