Five Labour members are waiting to hear if they will be charged over alleged anti-Semitic rants including calling Jews a 'cancer' and a sick joke about murdering Jewish people in 'chambers' being too expensive because of gas prices, it was revealed today.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick told LBC that six people were arrested last year as part of the inquiry - and that five files have been passed to the Crown Prosecution Service by her detectives.
The investigation was prompted by an internal Labour dossier detailing anti-Semitic messages on social media allegedly posted by party members, which was obtained by the radio station in 2018.
Reports at the time suggested the documents included details of 45 incidents involving 21 members, including one who allegedly wrote: 'We shall rid the Jews who are a cancer on us all.'
