Woman Charged and remanded into custody for Malicious Communications & Perverting the Course of Justice

A woman has been charged by police in relation to malicious communications towards a serving Bradford MP believed to be Naz Shah MP for Bradford West.

Police received a complaint over the weekend and an investigation was launched.

Officers investigating this incident have now charged a woman.

Sundas Alam, 30, of Princeville Street, Bradford has been charged for three offences of malicious communications and one count of perverting the course of justice.

She appeared at Bradford Magistrates court this morning (9 April).

In February Prime Minister Boris Johnson launched a fresh probe into the abuse faced by MPs, but especially female politicians. MP for Bradford West, Naz Shah, has previously been the target of abuse and death threats, and won an apology and damages after she took legal action over comments which led to abuse.
