Labour’s “suppressed” report into antisemitism is leaked

August 3, 2016 at 8:57 pm (anti-semitism, Jim D, labour party)

Following allegations of antisemitism at Oxford University Labour Club earlier this year, the party commissioned an inquiry chaired by Baroness Royall. This came before the more widely publicised inquiry chaired by Shami Chakrabarti into allegations of anti-Semitism throughout the party.

It has been alleged that the Royall report was suppressed (and its findings misrepresented) by Labour’s National Executive Committee at its May meeting. The official explanation from the party is that the NEC decided not to publish Baroness Royall’s full findings when it set up a wider inquiry, chaired by Ms Chakrabarti. Baroness Royall was appointed Vice Chair of the Chakrabati enquiry.

Shami Chakrabarti told the Jewish Chronicle: “My impression is that the NEC redacted it [ie: the Royall Report] because there were individuals involved who were then referred for disciplined.”

Here is the Royall report, leaked this morning: it finds that members of the Oxford University Labour Club did engage in antisemitic acts.
