LFI vice-chair Louise Ellman is pressing for answers on how Hezbollah flags came to be flying in the centre of London last weekend and taking action to help ensure it never happens again. She has written to the home secretary, Amber Rudd, asking her to use powers under the Terrorism Act 2000 to proscribe Hezbollah in its entirety. She has also written to London mayor Sadiq Khan asking him to request a review of policing of the march. Mrs Ellman wrote to the home secretary: “I am concerned that the mayor and the Metropolitan Police Service are constrained in their attempts to deal with this issue by the current status of Hezbollah … For flags of a terrorist organisation to be openly flying in the streets of central London barely two weeks after the terrible events at London Bridge, and following those in Manchester, Westminster Bridge and subsequently at Finsbury Park, is simply unacceptable.” In a further letter, LFI’s vice-chair has asked the chair of the Charity Commission, William Shawcross, to examine whether the organisers of the Al Quds Day march breached any its guidelines.
