"A man in his 50s [A] was arrested on 7 March on suspicion of an offence contrary to Section 19 Public Order Act 1986 — publishing or distributing material likely to stir up racial hatred — after a warrant was executed at an address in Birmingham. He was interviewed under caution at a custody suite in Birmingham [in England’s West Midlands]. He has been released under investigation", the Metropolitan Police told London-based LBC phone-in and talk radio station.
The probe was launched after back in September 2018 LBC handed Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service in London Cressida Dick a file showing a series of social media posts that, according to the radio station's own investigation, contained the proof of anti-Semitic crimes.
"A criminal investigation has commenced into some of the allegations within the documentation. Advice regarding these allegations was received from the Crown Prosecution Service and has been considered", the Met police said.
A Labour spokesman said that the party welcomes the police investigating these alleged crimes.
