A hearing was held at Loughborough Magistrates Court regarding the destination of the Harlan Two case and to review draconian bail conditions.

The magistrates at the court concluded that the trial should be heard at Leicester Crown Court on a currently unknown date.

Bail conditions for Luke Steele were challenged, which made it illegal to attend any animal-related events – meetings, gatherings and protests.

The CPS stated that Steele had cost Harlan Laboratories £70,000 over a several week period and was at risk of doing similar to other organisations. Following a strong defence case being presented, magistrates concluded that the Human Rights Act articles 10 and 11, freedom of association and speech, were absolute rights and thus the condition was overturned. Those of Jon White remain in place due to the condition above not being in place.
