Central London Employment Tribunal will hear case mid-May
Keir Starmer has been named – and could be called to testify as a witness – in a whistleblower’s tribunal case alleging that she was dismissed as part of a cover-up by Labour of a parliamentary staffer’s abuse and exploitation of domestic violence victims.
Sources close to whistleblower Elaina Cohen say that her allegations were communicated on multiple occasions to Keir Starmer and also to David Evans and to some of Starmer’s closest advisers yet no action was taken, amounting to a cover-up of what Cohen has claimed were criminal acts by the staffer of a former front-bencher. Skwawkbox has details of the alleged acts but cannot disclose them as the case is ongoing and may lead to criminal prosecution.
Sources also say that both Starmer and Evans have been named in Cohen’s application and are likely to be called as witnesses, as Cohen’s emails were acknowledged and they were aware of the protected disclosures from an early stage.
Skwawkbox understands that this site may also feature in the case in relation to exclusives published here revealing the abuse and related antisemitism.
The case will be heard in mid-May next year at Central London Employment Tribunal. Despite the allegations, the staffer in question has not been suspended and still has a Labour party parliamentary pass.
Keir Starmer was invited to comment on Ms Cohen’s claims and the prospect of being called as a witness in the case, but did not respond by the time of publication. Ms Cohen declined to comment as the case is still to be heard.
