Board of Deputies Vice President Marie van der Zyl has reacted with “disappointment” to the appointment of Baroness Chakrabarti as Shadow Attorney General only months after she presided over the Charkabarti Report into antisemitism in the Labour Party.
Marie said: “We are disappointed, but sadly unsurprised, that once again Shami Chakrabarti and Jeremy Corbyn have spectacularly undermined her so-called ‘independent’ report.
“We hoped her report would be a potent weapon in the fight against antisemitism.
“It now looks increasingly like the whitewash was a job application.
“She has sold out the Jewish community”.
