UK Judge Quits After Racial Slur on Indian-Origin Woman

LONDON:  A senior judge in Britain has been forced to quit his job after allegedly making a racist remark about an Indian-origin woman while hearing a harassment case involving the woman’s ex-boyfriend.

“With a name like Patel she can only be working in a corner shop or off licence,” said District Judge Peter Hollingworth after being told a prosecution team could not bring forward the case against Parvan Singh, accused of threatening Deepa Patel, as the victim was not in court, The Daily Mail reported Sunday.

“She won’t be working anywhere important,” he was quoted as saying.

The “inappropriate comments” of Judge Hollingworth were reported to HM Courts and Tribunals Service after which he resigned as a deputy district judge. However, he remains an immigration judge with the Asylum and Tribunal Services.

“It’s shocking and disgusting for anyone to say that, especially a judge…You would assume people of this day and age, especially a judge, wouldn’t be racist,” Patel was quoted as saying.

She said it was “outrageous” that Hollingworth was still an immigration judge. “He needs to resign altogether,” she said.
