Brother of former Labour leader charged with breaking Coronavirus restrictions – South London News

The brother of the former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been charged with ten offences of breaking Coronavirus restrictions.

Piers Corbyn, 73, of East Street in Southwark, has been charged with a number of counts of breaking Health Protection Regulations 2020 (Coronavirus restrictions) and is because of seem at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday May 20.

The costs are for offences throughout London with his involvement in anti-lockdown protests in Trafalgar Square, Westminster and South Bank.

Mr Corbyn acquired criticism from Southwark council final month over leaflets evaluating the Covid-19 vaccination roll out to Auschwitz.

Leaflets created by Mr Corbyn and artist Alex Heaton, have been distributed by means of residents’ doorways in Southwark.

They confirmed a sketch of the Nazi focus camp with the phrases “Vaccines are secure path to freedom” written on the gates – in alternative of notorious slogan “Arbeit macht frei” (Work units you free).

Mr Corbyn denied claims of Antisemitism and informed the South London Press on the time: “The declare by police prompted by sure politicians that this was malicious or anti-semitic is a monstrous assault on freedom of expression.

“The notion I’m in any approach anti-semitic is absurd and insulting.

“Any claims I’m or have ever been anti-semitic are baseless and false and seem associated to baseless accusations and pretend twitter claims.

“They appeared it appears as a weird approach of associating such false claims with my brother [Jeremy Corbyn].

“He shouldn’t be anti-Semitic; neither is Alex Heaton, the artist concerned within the latest leaflet subjected to police evaluation after an MPs intervention.”

The leaflet has now been taken down from his web site.
