A woman from Roehampton is one of five people including Piers Corbyn who have been charged with offences relating to breaches of the Coronavirus regulations.

35-year-old Fiona Hine, of Arabella Drive, is accused of taking part in four protests including one alongside the former Labour leader’s brother in Trafalgar Square on 29 August 2020. She also faces charges of attending three more demonstrations in breach of the regulations during September 2020, two of which were in Trafalgar Square and one in Whitehall.

Mr Corbyn faces ten counts of attending gatherings in breach of the regulations including two on 31 December 2020. He had already been arrested twice for holding anti-lockdown protests in Hyde Park. He has argued that it is not necessary and has blamed the roll out of 5G for the spread of the disease alleging it is a government ploy to encourage unnecessary vaccination.

Another of the people charged is Kay Shemirani a former nurse and conspiracy theorist who addressed a crowd from a platform on Trafalgar Square on 19 September 2020.

35-year-old Louise Creffield from Brighton was also charged along with 54-year-old Vincent Dunmall. They co-founded the Save Our Rights UK campaign which argues that Covid-19 is less deadly than is generally believed and that lockdown is unnecessary.

They are all due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 20 May 2021.
