Labour broke the law by failing to prevent “acts of harassment and discrimination”, a damning watchdog’s ruling into the occasion’s antisemitism scandal has discovered.
The long-awaited report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission says Jeremy Corbyn’s management “did not do enough to prevent antisemitism and, at worst, could be seen to accept it.”
The occasion was answerable for three breaches of the 2010 Equality Act “relating to “political interference in antisemitism complaints”, a “failure to provide adequate training to those handling antisemitism complaints” and “harassment”.
“The Labour Party made a commitment to zero tolerance for antisemitism,” Caroline Waters, the EHRC’s interim chair, stated.
“Our investigation has highlighted multiple areas where its approach and leadership to tackling antisemitism was insufficient.
“This is inexcusable and appeared to be a result of a lack of willingness to tackle antisemitism rather than an inability to do so.”
