Kate Scottow's trial has begun. Best wishes to her #Scottow
This is a great short summary by Joani Walsh of the charges and what this trial is over #IStandWithScottow…
We have to establish what can be shared, the claimant may have asked for communication restrictions. Surely if one is so sure of one's righteousness one would want the world to know how one had been wronged? #IStandWithScottow
Kate's cake from @MForstater #IStandWithScottow
Many women there to support Kate today

Restrictions have been placed on tweeting and communicating as it is an ongoing trial. It is incase anything disclosed influences witness statements I guess. #IStandWithScottow
Fantastic summary of the day by @MForstater here. You should see her court room sketches!
Up and ready for day two. If you have watched the first episode, settle in for the box set. #IStandWithScottow
Thank you to everyone who contributed to Kate's gift. The remainder has been given to Kate to be spent on a dinner out - including childcare and wine. Diana, Kate's barrister, also recieved Suffragette flowers #IStandWithScottow
Courtroom sketch ( Maya started it).
Another Courtroom sketch, this time Officer Rob
Verdict is due 14 Feb. session begins at 10 am.
Have you ever sent around 9 tweets over 6 months which someone could claim were intended to annoy another person? Even if that person wasn't tagged in?

If so, it could be you in court facing a criminal record and 6months in prison.
Day 1 the CPS claimed that there was no need for a victim to argue a persistent use of social media to cause annoyance or offence.
Imagine you sent 9 tweets over 6 months disagreeing with Brexit/U C/Income tax rates - are you to be arrested & prosecuted?
This prosecution is butting up against Articles 9 & 10 of HRA1998.
It's part of an attempted police and prosecution move away from evidence and facts to feelings and interpretation. Crimes without victims, but rather dangerous thoughts and (CPS quote from day 1) 'a woman with forthright views'.
