A man who pleaded guilty to sending racist and antisemitic emails to the Board of Deputies has been fined £700.
Mahmer Khammesh, 54, pleaded guilty at Highbury Corner magistrates’ court to sending offensive messages by a public network.
He must pay a £700 fine, plus court costs.
In October 2008, Khammesh was convicted of three charges of communications offences. His email targets then included the JC, Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Foreign Secretary David Miliband, and then Chelsea manager Avram Grant.
