Court hearing delayed in Belfast, Lennox supporters smell ulterior motives
Supporters of the Belfast dog Lennox suspect that the court in Belfast has delayed the judgment due today for some insidious reasons.
The court hearing for Lennox, the death row dog held in Belfast for two years, has been delayed as informs the supporters of Lennox on Facebook. The update is verified by sources in Britain, privy to the Houston News Online. The source says that it spoke to the concerned court’s office and was told that the judgment has been delayed. It says that apparently the judgment has been reserved and will be issued at a later date though no specific date has been fixed for the same yet.
The question bothering Lenox’s supporters, which number in several thousands from all around the world, is what possibly could cause this delay. Given the past record of the case, they do not trust the Belfast authorities or the court which sentenced Lennox to death without any history of aggression. Perhaps the answer is not so difficult to guess: the Olympic Torch.
To protest the Belfast authorities’ abuse of power and demand Lenox’s release to his family, his supporters started an online petition that demanded ‘No Olympic Torch for Belfast’ unless Lennox is freed by the Belfast City Council. Thousands of people signed the petition and asked for boycotting the Olympic Torch ceremony in Belfast scheduled for June 6 this year. This is what lennox’s supporters suspect now—that the Belfast court has delayed the final hearing to buy more time for the Olympic Torch to pass through the city.
This suspected trick of the court is akin to throwing dust in the eyes of Lennox’s supporters. But perhaps the court is not aware that those wishing Lennox safe against Belfast’s monkey business can’t be tricked like this so easily. All supporters of Lennox demand that Belfast be denied the Olympic Torch unless it sets Lennox free BEFORE June 6, 212. Those supporting Lennox say that the unexplained delay in Lennox’s case is unacceptable and condemnable and it will be a shame for the Olympic Committee to allow celebration of Olympic Torch in Belfast while its government victimizes innocent animals and their families.
