Failure to grass on the Council's say so.
Kate Badger was charged with 'knowingly causing the deposit of controlled waste, namely an apple core, on land which did not have a waste management licence'
She denies that charge and a second charge of failing to provide information about who actually did throw the apple.
Let's just pass over the nonsense of the council chasing an apple core thrower (alleged) through the courts and look at that second charge: failing to provide information about who actually did throw the apple.
WTF? Is it a criminal offence now not to grass up your friends?
If a person fails to provide relevant information, prosecution will normally be pursued. If the information is of vital importance to the Council's activities, an injunction should be sought requiring the offender to provide the information. Where the information is required by way of a formal notice, failure to comply with the notice will normally lead to prosecution.
Didn't there used to be a right to silence, or did I dream it?
