Corbyn’s office accused of interfering in anti-Semitism cases

Evidence has emerged of the involvement of Jeremy Corbyn’s inner circle in disciplinary action being taken against Labour members accused of anti-Semitism.

Labour MPs and Jewish groups say they had been assured by Mr Corbyn that his team had not interfered in the party’s disciplinary process.

But leaked emails appear to show that the leader’s office was involved in decisions on whether to suspend party members accused of posting anti-Jewish comments on social media.
