THE Campaign Against Anti-semitism is being investigated by the Charity Commission and police over suspicion of engaging in party-political activity and its petition that has been accused of inciting death threats against Jeremy Corbyn.
The petition demands that Labour MPs remove Mr Corbyn as leader of the party or form a new party, which could be against charity rules.
The CAA has condemned the death threats made by Facebook users in the comments section but has not removed the comments or taken down the petition.
Some of the comments on the petition posted by people who signed it label Mr Corbyn “a piece of terrorist loving anti-semite scum” and “a dirty nazi … persecuting the Jews who are peaceful people unlike the immigrants he wants to flood the country with.”
Another person posted: “Let’s get this bastard” while another accused the Labour leader of “hating white people.”
The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that they are investigating the CAA and the petition under the Malicious Communications Act after receiving a number of complaints.
A Met spokesperson has said that no arrests have been made and that the investigation is ongoing.
