Successful prosecutions under the Religious hate crime act 2006

We're waiting for Ms I. Ingham-Barrow to read recent responses and update the status.

Ms I. Ingham-Barrow

Dear Attorney General’s Office,

On 4th December 2015, your office received a FOI request from G Webber:

"Dear Attorney General’s Office,
Under the Public Order Act, the A-G's consent is required for prosecutions for incitement to religious hatred. These provisions were enacted in 2006.
Please provide me with an anonymous list of such cases referred to your office for consent, for each stating (i) the religion involved, (ii) whether or not consent was given, and, if consent was given, (iii) the outcome of the case.
For example:
21 February 2009, Islam, consent given, 2 years' imprisonment
30 November 2010, Judaism, consent given, not guilty
1 January 2011, Judaism, consent not given
Etc.
Yours faithfully,
Gabriel"

In your response supplied by Sayma Khatun on 29th January 2016, a case was referred to:
“(3) 7th April 2014 – Islam – consent granted to the prosecution of three offenders – all three
pleaded guilty, sentences of 15 months’ and 18 months imprisonment (although two of
the offenders received longer sentences for other offences sentenced at the same time).”

Could you please provide me with any additional information about the case? Ideally, case number/ names of defendants/ location of court/ details of the case itself - however, whatever you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Yours faithfully,
I Barrow
