English Defence League founder Tommy Robinson could make more than £1m from a possible trip to the US after being formally released from bail.

Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC announced that the far-right figure, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was no longer subject to any bail conditions after referring his contempt of court case to the attorney general.

The judge said at a brief hearing at the Old Bailey on Monday: “This is simply to indicate in open court that now the matter has been referred to the attorney general, Mr Yaxley-Lennon is no longer on bail to this court.

“As there is no bail, there are no bail conditions.”

Robinson nor his lawyer were required to attend the hearing.

Robinson was released from prison in August after the Court of Appeal quashed a contempt of court finding made at Leeds Crown Court.

However, he faces a retrial and could be sent back to jail if he is again found in contempt for filming people at a grooming trial in Leeds and broadcasting the footage on social media.

Leeds Crown Court heard that he denied breaching the Contempt of Court Act and making a broadcast likely to seriously prejudice the trial.

The bail announcement comes after reports that Robinson could earn more than £1m by making speeches in the US later this month.

It has been reported that he is waiting to see if US authorities will grant him a visa.

“The inevitable media coverage that will surround the visit will no doubt lead to an increase in his already significant monthly donations from America,” Hope Not Hate researcher Joe Mulhall told the Guardian.
