Israel embassy demos: 63 charged

A total of 63 people will be appearing in court later this week on charges arising out of demonstrations outside the Israeli embassy in west London in January this year.

One person has been charged with actual bodily harm, one with handling stolen goods and almost everyone else with breaking section two of the Public Order Act, which covers violent disorder. The youngest person charged is a 12-year-old boy from Tower Hamlets.

All 63 are due to appear at West London Magistrates’ Court on Thursday and Friday of this week.

The marches took place on January 3 and 10. Police are still seeking 17 people in connection with incidents that occurred in the march of January 3.
