LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's opposition Labour Party on Thursday suspended former leader Jeremy Corbyn in light of comments he made after a report said the party was responsible for unlawful harassment and discrimination in its handling of allegations of anti - Semitism .

Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been suspended from the parliamentary Labour party and has had the whip removed. Mr Corbyn had reacted to a damning report into antisemitism by saying complaints made during his tenure were "dramatically overstated". A party spokesman said

The interim president of the EHRC pointed to "inexcusable" shortcomings resulting from "a lack of will to tackle anti-Semitism rather than an inability to do so". In its 130-page text, the Committee concludes that the Labor Party has “committed unlawful acts”. Labor now has a legal obligation to put together, in agreement with the commission, an action plan to remedy this by December 10, failing which it risks prosecution.

Jeremy Corbyn, 71, wrote on Facebook that he did not accept "all" of the report's findings and that he dismissed any personal failure in the fight against this scourge. "In light of his comments," the party "suspended Jeremy Corbyn" and opened an investigation, a Labor spokesperson said.

"I will strongly contest the political intervention to suspend me", warned on Twitter Jeremy Corbyn who assures "to support a policy of zero tolerance with regard to all forms of racism". Without going as far as exclusion, the party however takes the risk of rekindling its divisions by sanctioning its former leader (from 2015 to 2020), still a deputy, who had transformed Labor into the first party in Europe in terms of number of members with strong popularity in the militant base.
