Grenfell bonfire accused given suspended jail term


Following the overturning of his original acquittal for distributing a grossly offensive video to WhatsApp showing a burning Grenfell Tower effigy on bonfire night, Mr Bussetti pleaded guilty on the basis that he had not acted with intent to cause gross offence. He was accordingly sentenced to a suspended 10-week prison sentence, with 120 hours of unpaid work.

Mark Summers QC represented Paul Bussetti, instructed by Look Chih Wang of Lound Mulrenan Jefferies.
