UNION flag protest cheerleader Jamie Bryson says he is prepared to fight his convictions after he was found guilty today of taking in unlawful public processions.
Following his conviction at Belfast Magistrates’ Court, he posted on Facebook: “As I expected from day one found guilty of all charges.
“I now fight this whole case again in the court of appeal.”
The 24-year-old was also convicted of obstructing traffic during one of the demonstrations staged in Belfast.
Bryson, of Rosepark, Donaghadee, County Down, will be sentenced next month.
He had denied a series of charges linked to the loyalist street protests, claiming he was the victim of a political prosecution.
The charges included four counts of participating in four un-notified public processions during January and February 2013, and obstructing traffic on the Newtownards Road in east Belfast.
