Jeremy Corbyn has been suspended from the Labour Party following the release of an inquiry into the party’s anti-Semitism that found Labour guilty of “unlawful acts of discrimination and harassment”.

The UK’s human rights watchdog, in its report on anti-Semitism in the party, also said Corbyn’s office had “politically interfered” in the complaints process.

The former Labour leader responded to the report claiming the scale of the problem was “dramatically overstated for political reasons by our opponents inside and outside the party, as well as by much of the media.”

Corbyn added that he did “not accept all of its findings”.

His comments came in contrast to current Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer.

“If there are still those who think there is no problem with anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, that it’s all exaggerated, and it’s a factional attack then frankly, you are part of the problem too and you should be nowhere near the Labour Party either,” Sir Keir said.

Labour said it was suspending Corbyn for a “failure to retract” his remarks.

But Labour said: “In light of his comments made today and his failure to retract them subsequently, the Labour Party has suspended Jeremy Corbyn pending investigation.

“He has also had the whip removed from the Parliamentary Labour Party.”

Corbyn has said he will “strongly contest” the decision.

“I will strongly contest the political intervention to suspend me.

I’ve made absolutely clear those who deny there has been an antisemitism problem in the Labour Party are wrong.

I will continue to support a zero tolerance policy towards all forms of racism.”
