A TOP Jewish Labour Party activist was suspended yesterday.
Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, who was recently elected to Labour’s ruling national executive committee (NEC), received an “administrative suspension” from the party.
The suspension came alongside an allegation that she "committed a Prohibited Act contrary to Chapter Two, Clause I.5.B of the Rule Book" by speaking at an event run by proscribed organisations in September last year.
The suspension means that Ms Wimborne-Idrissi will not be allowed to attend NEC’s annual general meeting, which takes place at the end of next week’s conference in Liverpool.
The election of Ms Wimborne-Idrissi to the NEC earlier this month was criticised by the right-wing Jewish Chronicle, which called it “a backward step.”
Ms Wimborne-Idrissi won her place as part of a grassroots ticket that saw four out of five candidates elected, in opposition to a right-wing alliance close to Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer.
Ms Wimborne-Idrissi tweeted: “Solidarity with all the many, many left delegates to conference and other comrades who have been expelled or suspended in recent days and weeks. What a travesty of democracy!
She added: “Don’t we have some Tories to fight?”
The Labour Party were invited to comment.
