Paul Chambers, who convicted and fined by the court for sending threatening message to blow up Robin Hood airport, has confirmed he challenge Doncaster Crown Court’s recent ruling in the High Court.
In January, Paul Chambers had used microblogging site Twitter to post a threatening message that he would blow Robin Hood Airport sky high if it was not opened by the time of its planned flight.
It may be noted here that the Robin Hood Airport was closed in January due to heavy snowfall, in a move that disrupted the holiday plans of numerous people. Paul Chambers claimed that he had joked in disappointment as the shutting down of the airport had upset his romantic travel plans.
Originally, he was ordered to pay a £384 fine plus £600 in court costs. He applied against the ruling. But, Doncaster Crown Court dismissed his appeal and slapped him with a bigger legal bill, adding additional £2000 to the costs.
However, Paul Chambers has been getting support from a large number of Twitter users and a host of celebrities. English actor Stephen Fry also supported Chambers, stating he himself would pay the fine levied by the court.
