Cafe owner Frederick Muir stands accused of incitement to racial hatred. The prosecution allege that he unfairly dismissed Tunde Williams, a highly qualified Nigerian immigrant, on the grounds of his race. Following the dismissal a number of witnesses say that Muir made a highly offensive racist speech. Muir denies the charge. He argues that he quite correctly dismissed Williams for incompetence. He admits to then speaking about racial issues but says his words condemned racism and he has been deliberately misquoted by the witnesses who have colluded in their evidence to try to discredit him.
