Corbyn suspended


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
