He added: “This is not to be taken as a precedent for all trials involving devout Muslims.
A trial had been scheduled for May 30
“The date was fixed administratively but no consideration had been made for Ramadan.

He told Hussain ‘Your trial is going to take place at the Old Bailey either on June 26 or perhaps July 10.’
