Racism in­quiry ‘tak­ing too long’

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

The leader of Scot­tish Labour has said the party needs to ac­cel­er­ate its in­ves­ti­ga­tions into cases of al­leged racism.

The party has been at the cen­tre of racism al­le­ga­tions since the be­gin­ning of the year.

Last month it emerged that key wit­nesses had not been con­tacted in an in­quiry­which be­gan in March.

Richard Leonard ad­mit­ted cases “have gone on much longer than I think is right”.

MSP Anas Sar­war re­vealed he had been the vic­tim of racism dur­ing the Scot­tish Labour lead­er­ship cam­paign.
