Newmark to be focus of Jewish Labour Movement police investigation | The Jewish Chronicle

Jeremy Newmark.

It seems This Writer may have been correct about Jeremy Newmark, then.

One would hope the Labour Party as a whole will distance itself from this tarnished organisation until such time as it can be shown to have got its act together.

And what’s this about the JLM having close links with the Israeli Embassy, one of whose employees was proved to have been conspiring to affect UK government appointments and decisions?

The article makes it clear that Jewish activists who are critical of the JLM believe “JLM’s link to the Israeli embassy should disqualify it from leading Labour Party trainings on anti-Semitism”.

That’s the organisation with whom the Labour Party wanted me to attend “training”. I have made it clear that this is entirely unacceptable – and now we can see that it’s not just because I’m innocent of any wrong-doing, but also because JLM appears to have its own questions to answer.

So when do you think I’ll get my apology from the Labour Party’s disputes panel?

Jeremy Newmark is at the centre of the “internal financial matters” referred to the police for investigation by the Jewish Labour Movement.

The JC has learned that allegations around Mr Newmark’s conduct led to the decision made by senior figures within the JLM to call in the police.

Mr Newmark stepped down as chair of the organisation earlier this month,  days after the JC revealed allegations of financial impropriety during his time at the helm of the Jewish Leadership Council five years ago.

One source confirmed to the JC this week: “The JLM decision to contact police does relate to Jeremy Newmark. There’s nothing else I can say at this time.”

    I had wondered if Mr McNicols resignation was anything to do with this because as General Secretary of the Labour Party, he has oversight responsibility for affiliated organisations.

    Let’s not forget JLM have offered their training session “free” to all CLPs in the UK. One wonders how many have actually accepted this?
