ATTOURNEY GENERAL Lord Goldsmith has said there is a “gap in the law” following the decision by a jury that BNP leader Nick Griffin had broken no law by condemning Islam at a secretly filmed meeting.

New laws on racial and religious hatred were passed earlier this year and are due to come into force next year, but following the acquittal of Griffin both the Lord Chancellor, Lord Falconer, and the Chancellor, Gordon Brown, called for the law to be looked at again.

Lord Goldsmith said that he had now had a report of the Griffin case from the lawyers.

“I think the case does show that there’s a gap in the law, but it’s a gap that we wanted to fill with the new legislation, and the question is going to be whether the law that parliament eventually passed is enough,” he said.

But he stressed that in the Griffin case, the prosecution was not trying to prove that there had been an attack on Islam, but an attack on people by reference to their race – Asians of a particular ethnic origin. read more
