Tommy Robinson: Far-right activist ordered to pay 100,000 in damages to Syrian refugee

A British activist has been ordered to pay 100,000 in damages to a Syrian refugee for libelling him on Facebook.

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, better known as Tommy Robinson, is the founder of the far-right English Defence League.

In October 2018 he responded online to a viral clip that showed Jamal Hijazi, then 15 years old, being attacked by fellow pupils at his school in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

In two follow-up videos seen by at least 950,000 people and shared 25,000 times, Robinson falsely claimed the teenager had previously attacked "young English girls" at his school.

He's trying to claim he's broke, so he cannot pay

1. Garnish his pay if there is one.

The Syrian refugee can use the money in any form.
