Daniel Scot and Danny Nalliah
In June, Daniel Scot and Danny Nalliah of Catch the Fire Ministry were found guilty of vilifying Muslims under Victoria State's controversial anti-vilification laws. Despite the ruling, they have publicly stated their refusal to abide by the ruling of the tribunal and are appealing the ruling (click here for details). On August 18, the Court of Appeal gave them leave to appeal the tribunal's decision. The Court of Appeal also determined that the men do not have to publish statements of apology until after their appeal. They are still restricted from making any comments about Islam that could be seen as similar to those which were considered to be vilifying.
