Greta Thunberg found not guilty of public order charge as judge finds ‘no evidence’ against her

Climate activist Greta Thunberg has been cleared of breaking the law when she refused to follow police orders to leave a protest at a London oil conference last year.

There was applause in court as the judge acquitted her and her four co-defendants, saying there was not enough evidence against them and the order to disperse was unclear. The Swedish environmentalist has been arrested several times in the last year.
