Prominent Grenfell Tower volunteer aid worker appears in court charged with publishing written material in order to stir up racial hatred, following report by CAA
A Grenfell Tower volunteer coordinator has today appeared in court charged with two counts of publishing written material in order to stir up racial hatred, which was reported to police by Campaign Against Antisemitism.
Tahra Ahmed, who was running a volunteer network to assist victims of the fire, is alleged to have made inflammatory comments about supposed Jewish involvement in the Grenfell fire tragedy.
Westminster Magistrates’ Court declined jurisdiction, sending the case up to the Old Bailey.
Today’s hearing identified the defendant and addressed case management. A plea hearing is expected later this year.
