UK police probe anti-vaxxer for implying medics should be hanged like Nazis

London’s Metropolitan Police said Sunday they were looking into a speech given by an anti-vaccine COVID-19 conspiracy theorist, in which she apparently threatened the country’s medical workers by noting that Nazi doctors and nurses were hanged for their crimes during World War II.

Former nurse Kate Shemirani sparked outrage with her remarks given during an anti-vaccination event attended by thousands in London’s Trafalgar Square on Saturday.

Police said they were examining a video from the event during which Shemirani urged crowds to send her lists of doctors and nurses involved in England’s national COVID-19 vaccination campaign.

“Get their names, email them to me. We have a group of lawyers, we are collating all that,” said Shemirani, who was struck off from practicing as a nurse earlier this year because of the disinformation she has spread.

“At the Nuremberg trials, the doctors and nurses stood trial and they hung,” she said, as the crowd cheered.

She then called on doctors and nurses to “stand with us, the people.”
