“Peace” activist jailed for assault on singer

In July, Wardytron reported on the arrest of former Green Party candidate and Iraqi “human shield”, Christaan Briggs, who punched Les Incompetents frontman Billy Leeson into a coma. Billy Leeson needed to be resuscitated, and had part of his skull surgically removed. He has been learning to walk again.

Briggs was sentenced to eight months imprisonment yesterday.
