JLC comment on announcement of EHRC to formally investigate the Labour Party

“The announcement today that the EHRC has launched a formal investigation into the Labour Party for unlawful discrimination against Jewish people should be a matter of shame for the Labour Party. We have drawn public attention over the last year to the leadership of the Party’s failure to address the anti-Jewish racism in the party. The fact that they have obfuscated, denied the problem and we have been accused of smears should be countered by today’s announcement by the EHRC. This is a very serious development.”

-Simon Johnson, CEO, Jewish Leadership Council
