Campaigners join Wolverhampton silent courts protest over the rights of juries
Campaigners took part in a protest outside Wolverhampton Crown Court as part of a nationwide bid to "defend our juries".
The Wolverhampton protest took place alongside a handful of others outside courts around the country on Monday.
The group, Defend Our Juries, say the protest is about the centuries-old right of all jurors in British courtrooms to acquit a defendant according to their conscience and irrespective of the directions of the judge.
Signs held up by protesters included 'Dogs decide a case according to the will of the pack' and 'The right of jurors to give their verdict according to their convictions'.
A spokesperson from the campaign said the demonstration was being held in solidarity with those who are facing criminal investigations for similar protests.
