Since he was locked up in May, Robinson has lost over 40 pounds as he was surviving on fruit and five cans of tuna per week over fears the prisoners preparing his meals were attempting to poison him.
Robinson says he was forced to remain in his cell due to death threats from other inmates who would throw their own feces at him and threaten his family.
Gateway Pundit reports: The independent journalist repeatedly complained to the prison and requested that they raise the £12 per week commissary spending limit so that he could purchase more packaged food, but they would not allow it.
Speaking to Ezra Levant of Rebel Media, Robinson explained how after he was moved to a majority Muslim prison he had to stay inside his cell with the windows shut because people would spit or throw feces through his window.
Robinson believes that he was deliberately moved to a prison with a high Muslim population to mess with him.
Since he is such an outspoken critic of Islam, he had to be kept in solitary confinement for his safety.
“If he were to have stayed in prison much longer, I fear his very life would have been in danger,” Levant wrote.
Additionally, he was only allowed to see his wife and children twice, for one hour each time.
At one point, he was told by an inmate that his family was going to be attacked with acid.
Though Robinson’s appeal was successful and he was released on bail, there is still a chance that he will face a retrial and be sent back to prison.
