Police Investigate UK Anti-Vax Leader After Her Call To Execute Doctors Who Advocate “Satanic 5G” Vaccine

The Guardian reports:

Fears have been expressed for the safety of doctors, nurses and other healthcare staff after they were targeted by anti-vaccine activists. Police are investigating comments made by Kate Shemirani, a former nurse who has been struck off for using her position to spread Covid misinformation, during the latest anti-lockdown rally at Trafalgar Square in central London on Saturday.

In a widely circulated public speech, she compared medical staff to Nazi war criminals, referred explicitly to their executions and demanded that people gather the names of doctors and nurses in the UK. The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has also condemned Shemirani’s actions. He said: “This is utterly appalling, and I have raised it directly with the Met police. Our NHS staff are the heroes of this pandemic and Londoners from across this city roundly reject this hate.”

The New York Post reports:

Following the rally, Shemirani’s son Sebastian Shemirani called for his mom — who has been banned by the Nursing and Midwifery Council for spreading coronavirus misinformation — to be “prosecuted under existing laws” for her comments.

“Or if there are not laws in place that say what she is doing is illegal, we should be having a national conversation about what laws we should be bringing in and drafting up legislation for that,” he told BBC Radio 4’s “Today.”

Sebastian claimed his mom believes she has “been anointed by God or some other higher power.” He said his mother recently texted him a message that read: “You need to listen to me. You and your sister are going to die. The CIA has a plot and half the UK’s population is going to be killed within five years.”

The Week reports:

The Metropolitan Police said officers were “carrying out enquiries to establish whether any offences have been committed”.

Labour leader Keir Starmer has said he hopes her speech will be “investigated and dealt with appropriately”. Asked by LBC if he thought her actions constituted a criminal offence, the former director of public prosecutions said: “Yes, it’s absolutely shocking.”

A spokesman for Boris Johnson said it was a matter for the police but that the prime minister believes “any violence, threats or intimidation is completely unacceptable”.
