Brighton activist given fresh court date next month
A political activist from Brighton has been given a fresh court date when he is expected to answer a charge of having “an article with intent to destroy property”.
Tony Greenstein, 67, has been bailed to attend a plea and trial preparation hearing at Wolverhampton Court on Monday 10 May by Judge Michael Chambers, the honorary recorder of Wolverhampton.
Anthony Nathan Greenstein, formerly of Little Crescent, Rottingdean, was bailed to Belgrave Place, Brighton.
His bail conditions include a curfew, requiring him to stay at the Belgrave Place property from 9pm to 7am.
He is banned from Staffordshire other than for court appearances or legal appointments.
And he is banned from going with 500 metres of any location known or reasonably believed to belong to a company called Eldit UK Limited.
Greenstein’s arrest and initial remand were reported by the JC – or Jewish Chronicle – on Monday (15 March).
The newspaper’s website said that he was arrested in Walsall in the early hours of Tuesday 9 March.
The report said: “Mr Greenstein was arrested along with other individuals by West Midlands Police officers.
“Following an appearance at Wolverhampton Magistrates’ Court, the 67-year-old was remanded in custody.”
Greenstein currently also faces a separate trial in Sussex later this year on charges of harassing Labour Party members in Brighton.
He is accused of carrying out a campaign of harassment over almost five months last year which involved sending seven “abusive, insulting and offensive” emails which also included veiled threats to employees.
He denied the charges when he appeared at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 4 March.
