British politician Lord Nazir Ahmed has quit Labour party after attributing his prison sentence to pressure applied on the court by Jews œwho own newspapers and television channels,” local media reports.
The 55-year-old Labor MP, who became one of the first Muslim peers in the UK after former Prime Minister Tony Blair appointed him in 1998, was jailed in 2009 after he killed a motorist when sending text messages while driving.
Nargess Moballeghi, Press TV™s correspondent in London, asked Lord Ahmed earlier about his decision to step down from Labour party.
œThis was a very difficulty step, I™m very hurt, because I™ve been a member of the Labour party for 38 years, a party I have represented locally as well as nationally and regionally that I™ve been very proud of”, said the Lord desperately.
Press TV™s correspondent asked the Lord if there were any evidence to affirm claims against him.
