A YOUNG MAN who today had his conviction for false imprisonment overturned has described the impact the experience has had on his life over the last three-and-a-half years.

Jason Lester from Brookview Close in Tallaght was just 15 when he took part in the now infamous Jobstown protest in November 2014.

He was later arrested and charged, and last year became the only person to be found guilty of false imprisonment of then Tánaiste Joan Burton and her advisor Karen O’Connell.

Jobstown ‘vitriol’

A further four complaints against broadcasters were upheld or upheld in part in the BAI’s latest complaints bulletin. Two of these involved remarks by Newstalk Breakfast presenter Paul Williams about protestors at Jobstown, in which he directed “vitriol” at Solidarity TD Paul Murphy.

The committee ruled that Williams had taken “no steps to guard against the use of coarse and offensive language” when he described the Jobstown protestors on-air last July as “assholes”, “bastards”, “thugs” and “bullyboys”. It also found the programme had not been in compliance with the BAI’s code of fairness, objectivity and impartiality in news and current affairs. One complaint was upheld, while a second one was upheld in part.

Although the presenter apologised for his language on air shortly after, the committee said Williams had an editorial responsibility to adhere to the regulations.

“The comments amounted to what was essentially a partisan diatribe by one presenter against an individual elected representative, his party and parties who hold what is described as left-wing political positions and which the presenter clearly objects to on a personal level.”
