Glasgow MSP disappointed as case dropped
ANAS Sarwar has said he is disappointed by the outcome of a Labour investigation that found a councillor accused of using a racial slur when referring to him has no case to answer.
Mr Sarwar claimed in January last year that a party colleague had made the remark during his campaign to succeed Kezia Dugdale as Scottish Labour leader in 2017.
Davie McLachlan was subsequently named as the councillor alleged to have made the comment and was suspended from the party as it launched an investigation into the remark, which Mr McLachlan has categorically denied.
At the party’s National Constitutional Committee (NCC) hearing on Monday in Glasgow, the case against Mr McLachlan was dismissed.
Following the hearing, Mr Sarwar said he was disappointed by the process and the outcome of the investigation.
