Woman who threatened to kill Dawn Butler pleads guilty


A WOMAN who threatened to kill Labour MP Dawn Butler has been detained in jail after entering a guilty plea, it has been reported.

Nura Mohamed approached Butler, the shadow secretary of state for women and equalities while she was travelling on the underground last year.

The incident occurred during rush hour on a packed Jubilee Line train on December 6 2018, The Mirror reported.

Mohamed used expletives when she addressed the politician on public transport and questioned her about her alleged lack of support.

“Dawn Butler let's talk about this. Dawn Butler you f****** b****, you f****** slag. Why haven't you helped my daughters,” The Mirror reported the court heard Mohamed said.

She went on to say: “Are we going to talk about this or am I going to have to kill somebody?”

In response, Butler asked Mohamed if she thought that was a wise comment to make, to which she said: “I don’t care, I will kill you anyway,” The Mirror reported.

While Butler has not publicly commented on the development in the case, some of her fellow Labour politicians have expressed their concern over the incident and support for the Brent MP.

Responding to the news, Harriet Harman, Labour MP for Camberwell and Peckham, tweeted: “This is terrifying threat to @DawnButlerBrent but also threat to our democracy. Important for every person in this country who believes that we are governed by elections not by thuggery & threats! Solidarity to Dawn!”

Labour cllr Kelly Grehan tweeted: “Thoughts with fantastic @DawnButlerBrent. This is horrible.”

In addition to pleading guilty to threatening behaviour, Mohamed also entered guilty pleas for several charges including assaulting a police constable, being drunk and disorderly and common assault.

Mohamed will be sentenced on October 17.
