Index on Censorship say prosecution of blogger should never have happened

Glyn Wintle, 01 January 1970

"This prosecution should never have been brought in the first place," said Jo Glanville, editor of Index on Censorship. "Since the landmark obscenity cases of the 60s and 70s, writers have been protected from such prosecutions and have remained free to explore the extremes of human behaviour. This case posed a serious threat to that freedom. In future, obscenity cases should be referred directly to the director of public prosecutions before any prosecution is triggered."
