Extremist Avoids Prison

An extremist who threatened to dig up relatives of people connected to an animal research lab subjected her victims to "a prolonged campaign of hate", police said today.

Diane Jamieson, 60, of Lytham Road, Ashton, Preston, was given a suspended 51-week jail sentence at Preston Crown Court on Thursday after pleading guilty to six counts of interfering with contractual relationships so as to harm an animal research organisation.

The charges arose from threatening letters the former Law Society member and legal worker sent to a number of companies and individuals from 2002 onward.
The recipients had been identified by a group joined by Jamieson -- Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) -- as having dealings with animal research companies.
