US military veteran refuses to pay fine after being found guilty...

A 77-year-old US military veteran has refused to pay over £2,300 in fines and costs after being found guilty of carrying a sign supporting Hamas at a protest in South Yorkshire. Michael Rabb was sentenced to a £1,000 fine, £930 costs, and a £400 surcharge by District Judge Annabel Pilling. Rabb, who stood throughout sentencing, responded by saying he would not pay. The judge warned him that he may be in contempt of court and gave him seven days to make the payment. Rabb argued that his actions were a legitimate act of civil disobedience and that his arrest was an attempt to shut down dissent.
