Jeremy Newmark quits as Jewish Labour Movement chair

Financial allegations force resignation

    Jeremy Newmark, the chair of the Jewish Labour Movement, has resigned following the publication by the Jewish Chronicle of an internal report into his time as CEO of the Jewish Leadership Council.

    In a statement released late this afternoon, Peter Mason, the JLM's National Secretary, said: "Jeremy Newmark has announced his decision to step down from his role as JLM National Chair to enable him to act in a clear and individual capacity in seeking redress following the publication of historic allegations about him and others during his tenure at the Jewish Leadership Council. Jeremy has refuted these allegations."

    Mr Mason stressed that "there are no allegations whatsoever against Jeremy that relate to the Jewish Labour Movement. Our national officers have full oversight of all processes. We are confident that they are robust."

    Earlier today it emerged that the Charity Commission has written to the JLC concerning its handling of the issue.
