No case to answer: BNP candidate Sion Owens faces 'Koran burn' charge

"A BNP candidate for next month's Welsh assembly elections has been charged with a public order offence, after police were passed a video appearing to show him burning a copy of the Koran." 

How can it be a public order offence if it was just a video that was passed to the Observer which the Observer passed to the police?

To be a public order offence, would that not mean that a member of the public had to see this display in a public place?

Which section of the Public Order Act is he being charged under?

Sounds like a case of malicious prosecution to me.–-official-response-arrest-sion-owens-south-wales-police

Strange another so called scandal just before an election.
For the record every time a suicide bomber blows up a place don,t you think that there would of been several copies of the Koran in each of these buildings and lets put it in perspective its a book wrote by a paedo who married a 6 year old.
