LONDON — The leader of the English Defence League (EDL) appeared in court on Monday charged with attempting to travel to the United States using another person's passport, London's Metropolitan Police said.
Stephen Lennon, 29, appeared in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court to face the charge of "possession of a false identity document with improper intention", Scotland Yard said in a statement.
"The case relates to allegations that a man tried to travel to the US in September using another person's passport," a Met police spokesman told AFP.
Lennon, widely known by his pseudonym Tommy Robinson, was remanded to appear at Southwark Crown Court on a date in January.
