The hate singer convicted of posting “grossly offensive” material mocking the Holocaust is back under investigation, Jewish News  understands.

Alison Chabloz from Derbyshire, who was given a two-year suspended sentence after being convicted of charges relating to three of her songs at in May, was at it again earlier this month, in a blog post.

The police investigation refers to comments she posted following the death of French Jewish film-maker Claude Lanzmann, whose seminal work, Shoah, is credited with helping a generation understand the horrors of the Holocaust.

In it, she appears to call the Holocaust a “gargantuan accumulation of nonsense, bound together by an endless string of gossip, relayed to us as gospel truth by our controlled media, our so-called democratic leaders and the brainwashed masses”.

She also says she was convicted “for offending the likes of Irene Zisblatt and Elie Wiesel” and refers to Holocaust-era shower heads as providing “Nazi atrocity porn exhibits”, a comment she then refers to as “crass humour”.

Jewish News understands that the article was referred to the police by the Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland Community Rehabilitation Company, a private-sector supplier of probation and prison rehabilitation services.

Officers from Derbyshire Constabulary are understood to be investigating.

While not commenting on individual cases, a Ministry of Justice spokesman said: “Suspended sentences include strict conditions which, if breached, can result in further punishment, including time behind bars.”

At her trial in May, brought by Campaign Against Antisemitism, Chabloz was convicted of two counts of sending an offensive, indecent or menacing message through a public communications network and a third charge relating to a song on YouTube.  She was sentenced to 20 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for two years, and banned from posting anything on social media for 12 months.

Stephen Silverman of Campaign Against Antisemitism: “Alison Chabloz is under investigation for alleged further offences after Campaign Against Antisemitism reported two blog posts to the police. We believe these posts may also constitute breaches of her suspended prison sentence.”
