Alison Chabloz, who is currently standing trial for alleged antisemitic offences, has just been arrested at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on suspicion of bail breaches brought to the attention of police by Campaign Against Antisemitism.
Ms Chabloz was the subject of Campaign Against Antisemitism’s first private prosecution for alleged antisemitic offences. We privately prosecuted her as the state had failed to do so and the statutory time limit for bringing a prosecution had almost expired. In December last year, we secured court bail conditions to prevent antisemitic social media activity and various other actions by Ms Chabloz while she awaited trial.
Earlier this year, the Crown Prosecution Service exercised its power to take over our private prosecution, and on the basis of information provided by Campaign Against Antisemitism, the bail conditions were tightened further.
After Campaign Against Antisemitism sent more than a dozen letters to police with information about alleged bail breaches, she has now been arrested on suspicion of breaching her bail conditions.
