CPS charges one individual with hate offences after ‘antisemitism dossier’ investigation

Birmingham man Mohson Rasool, 60, accused of sending grossly offensive message or other material

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has charged one person with a hate offence following its assessment of a Metropolitan Police investigation into a ‘dossier’ of antisemitism allegations against Labour members.

60-year-old Mohson Rasool, from Birmingham, has been charged with sending grossly offensive material.

Six people were arrested last spring as police investigated. Four have been told that no further action will be taken against them, while inquiries continue into another man in his sixties and the Met has asked the CPS for ‘investigative advice’ over a further five people.

The dossier was covered extensively last year by the media and was used as the basis for attacks on the party’s leadership and administration by right-wing Labour MPs, in spite of Met Commissioner Cressida Dick’s confirmation that there was no police investigation into the Labour Party.

Labour has more than half a million members. The single charge does not appear to have been covered in broadcast news.
