Book and documentary to launch on Labour's 'Whitewashed' Chakrabarti inquiry into antisemitism per The Jewish Chronicle

'Almost a year to the day after the publication of Baroness Chakrabarti's inquiry into "antisemitism and other forms of racism" in the Labour Party, a book and documentary on the report and its failings are due to be released.

They reveal that individuals who submitted evidence to the investigation claim they were ignored by the peer, leaving them feeling "foolish" and "abandoned".

Whitewashed will be screened on Monday, with the book launch taking place at the same time. The book documents 17 submissions on antisemitism, mostly from Labour members, to Baroness Chakrabarti's probe.

Following the publication of her findings on June 30 last year, it emerged that Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, had nominated Ms Chakrabarti, the former director of Liberty, for elevation to the House of Lords.

The Board of Deputies subsequently described her report and its aftermath as "a whitewash-for-peerages scandal".'

You can find out more here but obviously not on the institutionally anti Israel and pro Labour Party BBC.
