Together we can build a better Redbridge

JAS ATHWAL

SUSPENSION LIFTED

The campaign for justice begins

I am delighted that the highest disciplinary body in the Labour Party has finally heard my case and cleared me of any wrongdoing. This was the inevitable conclusion of a malicious complaint against me by someone with a political axe to grind and a history of making vexatious complaints.

It should never have gotten this far or gone on this long. My family and I have been through hell as this case has been dragged out.

I am in no doubt that this malicious complaint was deliberately manipulated for no other reason than exclude me from the selection to become the Labour Party’s Parliamentary Candidate in the Ilford South constituency.

As a result, I have felt tortured and betrayed by the Party that I have loved and served for more than a decade.

Those responsible, some of whom have left the employment of the Labour Party and some of whom continue to hold positions of influence within the Labour Party, must be held to account.

There must never be a repeat of this kind of political corruption. I have every confidence that Keir Starmer’s leadership will restore principles of fairness, decency and justice to the Labour Party.

The Labour Party must now undertake a thorough investigation into the handling of my case by Party officers and members of the National Executive Committee and introduce a complaints system that is independent and free from political manipulation and corruption to give genuine victims the confidence to know that they can come forward.

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, SUPPORT THE CALLS FOR AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO THE HANDLING OF JAS ATHWAL’S CASE SO THAT LESSONS CAN BE LEARNED AND THOSE RESPONSIBLE CAN BE HELD TO ACCOUNT

About

Jas Athwal

Redbridge residents deserve an alternative to the near decade of austerity we have endured under successive Conservative governments. We deserve better than closing hospitals and overstretched schools.

We deserve better than the politics of hate and division spread by the Tories and government funded buses telling immigrants they are not welcome.

I have delivered as the Leader of Redbridge Council – improving services, fighting austerity, and leading the Borough through the awful Covid19 crisis.
