Racial hatred arrest for internet blogger

A blogger from Dunstable has been arrested and released on bail for allegedly stirring up racial hatred.

Paul Ray, who uses the pseudonym Lionheart on his provocative online diary, was arrested two weeks ago after returning from South Carolina, America where he was seeking political asylum.

He had already been warned via email on January 3 by Bedfordshire Police that he would be arrested if he returned.

Last month he attended Greyfriars police station in Bedford, was arrested then bailed and told to return in May to either be released or charged.

His blog includes his opinions on the heroin trade, Islamic fundamentalism and alleged police corruption. (...)
