OUTFITS WERE JUST AN APRIL FOOL, SAY G20 PROTESTERS London Lite Monday, 28 September 2009 11 A G20 PROTESTER is being prose- cuted for impersonating a police officer -- when she was half-dressed in a black bra and a riot helmet. Leah Borromeo, 30, is among 11 demonstrators, who call themselves the Space Hijackers, facing charges. They claimed today they had been taking part in an April Fools Day joke as world leaders met at the summit in London on 1 April. They were arrested as they drove an armoured personnel carrier through the City while playing Wagners Ride Of The Valkyries over a loudspeaker and wielding toy machineguns. Freelance writer Ms Borromeo, whose boiler suit was rolled down to the waist, said: If Im guilty of anything its of impersonating a stripper. It is a farcical case. Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer decided they must face a four-day trial despite critics describing the charges as a terrible abuse of power. The offence carries a maximum sentence of three months. A lead member of the Space Hijackers, who did not want to be named, said: It was a parody and a spoof. This case is a complete overreaction. We think this case is a complete waste of taxpayers money. Critical to the defences case will be evidence that none of the dozens of witnesses being brought by the defendants believed the Space Hijackers were police officers. A Met Police spokesman said: We cannot comment as a legal case is pending.
