Lon­don: Bri­tish for­mer Labour Party leader Jeremy Cor­byn will be sus­pended as a Labour mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for three months as the party faces calls to launch a new in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the Tele­graph re­ported yes­ter­day.

Cor­byn was in­formed that the du­ra­tion of the sus­pen­sion could be re­viewed de­pend­ing on his ac­tions, sug­gest­ing it could be short­ened or ex­tended de­pend­ing on whether he is­sued an apol­ogy, the re­port added, cit­ing sources.

Cor­byn was sus­pended from the party in October in light of his com­ments af­ter a re­port said the party was re­spon­si­ble for un­law­ful ha­rass­ment and dis­crim­i­na­tion in its han­dling of al­le­ga­tions of an­tiSemitism.

He was read­mit­ted to the party on Wed­nes­day but cur­rent Labour leader Keir Starmer re­fused to read­mit him to the Par­lia­men­tary Labour Party. — Reuters
