The National Union of Students president will not be punished by the organisation, despite being found to have made comments capable of being seen as anti-Semitic.
A two-month NUS inquiry launched to ascertain whether Bouattia is an anti-Semite found that Bouattia made comments that “could be reasonably capable of being interpreted as anti-Semitic”.
Yet the report, leaked to The Daily Telegraph, recommended that no disciplinary action be taken.
Instead, Professor Carol Baxter, the NHS’s former equality chief who authored the report, proposed that Bouattia should apologise to escape any further action.
Baxter wrote that Bouattia had been “genuine in expressing her regret”, had “considered the impact of what she says” and had denounced anti-Semitism.
She ruled: “in light of the above mitigating circumstances no further action should be taken within the NUS disciplinary process.”
Bouattia called Birmingham University a “Zionist outpost in higher education” because it has “the largest Jsoc [Jewish student society] in the country and railed against “Zionist-led media outlets”.
She defended Palestinian terrorism as “resistance” and voted against condemning ISIS.
