Jewish Chronicle admits libeling Labour councilor over “anti-Semitism”

The Jewish Chronicle has apologized and agreed to pay damages to a Labour Party councillor in the UK over claims of anti-Semitism.

In a series of articles published last year, The Jewish Chronicle writer Lee Harpin claimed that Nada al-Sanjari, who is Muslim, had invited an “anti-Semitic activist” to speak at a Labour Party event.

But the activist was Jewish Voice for Labour secretary Glyn Secker – who al-Sanjari had never invited in any case.

In an apology published online and in print, The Jewish Chronicle withdrew its claims against al-Sanjari. It also agreed to pay her “a substantial sum” in libel damages as well as her legal costs, her lawyers said.
