A student ‘diversity’ officer who was due to appear in court after allegedly tweeting #killallwhitemen has had the charges against her dropped.
Bahar Mustafa, a student union Welfare and Diversity Officer at Goldsmiths, University of London, was due to appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Thursday charged with sending a communication conveying a threatening message.
The 28-year-old, from Edmonton, north London, had also been charged with sending an offensive message via a public communication network between November 10, 2014, and May 31.
But a Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) letter sent on October 26 told Mustafa the decision to drop the charges had been made due to lack of evidence, reported the Guardian.
It said: ‘The decision to discontinue these charges has been taken because there is not enough evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction.’
A Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed the case had been discontinued.
A CPS spokesman added: ‘Following the decision to discontinue this case, one of the complainants has now requested a review of this decision under the Victims’ Right to Review Scheme.
