A FATHERS’ Rights Campaigner Who Defaced A Portrait Of The Queen Sentenced To Six Months Jail By A British Judge.

That they are reactionary and not much use to the parents rights movement.

A FATHERS’ rights campaigner who defaced a portrait of the Queen by Australian artist Ralph Heimans has been sentenced to six months jail by a British judge.

Tim Haries was found guilty in January of defacing the portrait with purple spray paint last June while it was hanging in Westminster Abbey.

The Queen as a subject … Artist Ralph Heimans stands beside his painting of the Queen.

Recorder Judge McCreath said the opportunity to have close access to works of art was greatly valued by many people. He told jurors he vandalised the picture to highlight the “social justice issue of our time”, had denied a charge of causing criminal damage of more than £5,000 but was found guilty at London’s Southwark Crown Court last month.

“Those who act as you did put that opportunity at risk,” he told Haries, an electrician from South Yorkshire, at Southwark Crown Court.

Jurors heard how Haries shouted “fathers for justice” as he scrawled the graffiti on the large oil painting before being tackled to the ground by steward Peter Crook.

Haries, 42, of Doncaster, decided to represent himself towards the end of his trial and directly addressed jurors, telling them he carried out the act as a protest against the “social catastrophe” of fathers not being allowed access to their children. The court heard today it cost £9,204 to repair, with insurers paying £4,000 and an excess of £5,000 standard.co.uk
