Paul Golding has been punched in the face by two inmates, while only being in prison for a few days.

It has been reported that Paul Golding is now in isolation in the category C prison. Police are investigating the attack on Paul.

Kent police did not reveal the victim’s identity but added:”The victim is alleged to have been punched by two other inmates, causing him to suffer minor facial injuries. Enquiries into the incident are ongoing.”

A Prison Service spokesman added: ‘We do not comment on individual prisoners.’

Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen were jailed for religiously aggravated harassment.

Jayda Fransen was sentenced to jail for 36 weeks and Paul Golding for 18 weeks by Judge Justin Barron who describe their crimes as “deliberately planned against targeted victims”.

Judge Justin Barron said their words and actions “demonstrated hostility” towards Muslims and Islam, adding: “I have no doubt it was their joint intention to use the facts of the case for their own political ends.

“It was a campaign to draw attention to the race, religion and immigrant background of the defendants.”

Golding was found guilty of one count of religiously aggravated harassment.

Jayda Fransen his deputy was found guilty of 3 counts of religiously aggravated harrasment.

The leaders of Britain First were arrested in May when they distributed leaflets and posted videos during a rape trial.

Jayda and Paul once went to the defendant, Tamim Rahmani’s house and shouted racist abuse through the front door.

Tamim’s pregnant partner was alone with their two children aged 3 years and 18 months.

In a video played in court, Fransen could be seen banging on the door and shouting: “Come out and face me you disgusting rapist, come on.”

Prosecutors said it was one of several incidents of Fransen and Golding “filming and harassing people” they incorrectly believed were involved in the trial.

“In each case, they instead targeted innocent members of the public,” a spokesperson for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.

“They filmed the abuse and then released it on social media and through the Britain First website.

“They also posted offensive leaflets through the letterboxes of houses in the area where the rape trial defendants lived.”

Fransen denied all charges and claimed she did not use the phrase “Muslim bastards”, or say that all Muslims are rapists.

Golding also denied the charges and said he was only acting as Fransen’s cameraman.

Jaswant Narwal, from the CPS, said: “The prosecution case demonstrated these defendants were not merely exercising their right to free speech but were instead aiming religiously-aggravated abuse at innocent members of the public.

“The victims suffered the distress of the abuse followed by additional stress when the footage was uploaded to the internet.

“This offending also related to an ongoing criminal trial and the actions taken by Fransen and Golding could easily have derailed the justice process.”
