Po­lice are ques­tioned

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

JEWISH AC­TIVISTS say they will call for a re­view of the Metropoli­tan Po­lice’s de­ci­sion to drop an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a pro-Pales­tinian pro­tester who ap­peared to sup­port the killing of Jews.

Lawyer Robert Festen­stein, who acts for the Jewish Hu­man Rights Watch group, said he was “as­ton­ished” that the po­lice was tak­ing no ac­tion.

The fe­male pro­tes­tor was filmed dur­ing a protest against the UK visit of Is­raeli prime min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu.

A po­lice spokesper­son said hav­ing viewed the footage, of­fi­cers de­cided her com­ments “did not reach the thresh­old of a hate crime”.
