Racial abuse conviction, sans victim ...

A BNP member has been convicted of "racially aggravated disorderly conduct" for shouting 'seig heil' at an asian women - though the woman never came forward and there was only one witness. link

what do you think of this? i mean the fact he was accused of shouting a nazi slogan and turned out to be a BNP member would tend to support the witness' story, but its a bit weird to have convictions based on a single witness don't you think? i mean what's to stop, for example a manager reporting being 'racially abused' by a picket ... ?
