Leader of far-right group Britain First and his deputy are charged with causing religiously aggravated harassment. The leader of the far-right group Britain First has

been charged with causing religiously aggravated harassment. Paul Golding, 35, and Jayda Fransen, 31, the leader and deputy leader of far-right group Britain First have

been charged with causing religiously aggravated harassment, Kent Police said. The pair, both from Penge in south-east London, were arrested on May 10. They were

investigated over their alleged behaviour during the trial of four men for raping a teenage girl above the 555 Pizza takeaway in Ramsgate. Shershah Muslimyar, 21, of

Canterbury; Tamin Rahmani, 38, of Ramsgate; Rafiullah Hamidy, 24, of Herne Bay were sentenced to 14 years each in prison while a teenager was jailed for seven

years after brutally attacking the girl in September last year. As the men stood trial in May, Golding and Franser are said to have distributed leaflets in the Thanet and

Canterbury areas, and posted online videos during the court proceedings. The trial involved three Muslim men and a teenager who were eventually convicted of rape

and jailed. Fransen has been charged with four counts of causing religiously

aggravated harassment, and Golding three counts. Both have been bailed to appear before Medway magistrates on 17 October 2017.
