Anti-fracking campaigner tells court: “I won’t pay Cuadrilla’s £55k legal bill”

Prominent anti-fracking campaigner, Tina Rothery, refused this morning to pay legal fees amounting to more than £55,000 in a dispute with the shale gas company, Cuadrilla.

Statement:

With respect to the District Judge and the courts I have huge admiration for a system of justice that is fair but I feel in this case that our law courts are not being used to seek justice but instead being applied like a weapon and a threat against peaceful protest.

The fact that Cuadrilla has the finances, power and vindictiveness to pursue this throughour courts is an abuse of one of the most valued aspects of our democracy. 


So please accept my aplogies if this seems rude but as this case has nothing to do whatsoever with justice, I will not be complying with any requests  for information or payment.


I make this statement on behalf of myself and an entire movement who will not be bullied.
