LAAS Statement on the Lifting of Jeremy Corbyn’s Suspension

Fiona Sharpe, spokesperson for Labour Against Antisemitism, has said:

“The lifting of Jeremy Corbyn’s suspension from the Labour Party, following his non-apology, serves only to further highlight the issues raised in the EHRC report.

The Labour Party disciplinary process again appears to be subject to political interference, with seemingly no accountability or transparency. Even with a moderate majority on the party’s ruling body, the NEC, and a legal obligation to address the antisemitism crisis within the party, the Jewish community continues to be ignored.

This cannot continue: it is not enough to call past behaviour shameful, and then not take any action to ensure such behaviour doesn’t happen again. We urge the establishment of a fully independent complaints process that will review both this specific case, and all others from 2015 onwards, so that justice for the Jewish community can be done.”
