UKIP National Executive Council member Elizabeth Jones has been completely exonerated of any involvement with an alleged incident in Bookmarks Bookshop, London, last Saturday (4th August).

A precautionary suspension was imposed on Ms Jones following false accusations made against her on social media on Monday, 6th August.

UKIP Chairman Tony McIntyre launched an immediate and comprehensive investigation of Ms Jones and two days after her temporary suspension, he lifted her suspension and fully reinstated her into the Party.

“There is absolutely no evidence at all of Ms Jones having any knowledge of, or involvement in the actions which allegedly took place inside the bookshop,” Chairman McIntyre said in an official UKIP Statement issued today (Wednesday 8th August).

“Ms Jones just happened to be in the approximate central London area solely because she had attended an unconnected event earlier that Saturday afternoon. I am delighted to absolve Elizabeth totally, and welcome her back in the fold. I only regret we had to suspend her initially, however briefly this has been, due to the false allegations made against her.”

Elizabeth learned of the news in the early hours this morning (Wednesday 8th August). She issued the following statement:

“I am deeply grateful to our Chairman Tony McIntyre for expediting his investigation and upholding the truth in his findings in my favour so I can carry on serving UKIP. I have nothing further to say, as this matter had nothing to do with me in the first place.”
