Glad to hear it.
The news story you linked to was indeed the correct one. It's just surprising that, in that instance, the court was not mindful of the fact their failure to remand would be reported by the media, and the tactic possibly repeated by countless other demonstrators. My opinion of why the demonstrators were not remanded is probably not worth repeating, but it has little to do with good advice from a Justice's clerk.

Identify them as what? The same 'anons' as last time?
Besides which, 'getting them next time' is no justification for letting them go the first time.
