A court has issued an arrest warrant for pro-Israel campaigner Jonathan Hoffman, after he failed to appear for a hearing on an assault charge.
Mr Hoffman, a former vice-president of the Zionist Federation, failed to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Monday to face charges of common assault and using threatening words and behaviour, under Section Four of the Public Order Act.
He told the JC: "I did not receive any paper work asking me to appear in court. I have been to the court and have been told to return by 11:30am tomorrow."
Another warrant was also issued for Damon Lenszner who failed to appear at court charged with assault by beating.
