LABOUR activist Tony Greenstein has been expelled from the party following allegations of anti-semitism.
Mr Greenstein was suspended in 2016 after he was accused of making offensive comments, including the use of the term “zio.” He was expelled at the weekend following a disciplinary hearing, which had been delayed due to health reasons.
Labour's National Constitutional Committee (NCC) found that all three charges of a breach of the party’s rule 2.1.8 by Mr Greenstein were proved.

The party declined to make further comment.
