Tower Hamlets election: Campaigners challenging Lutfur Rahman's win 'intimidated on industrial scale'
by Robin de Peyer
Campaigners backing a legal challenge against Lutfur Rahman's election as Tower Hamlets Mayor have become victims of intimidation on an "industrial" scale, it was claimed last night.
A group of petitioners allege potential whistleblowers from the borough's Bengali community have received threats to their businesses and families both in London and Bangladesh.
Mr Rahman, who is Britain's first directly-elected Muslim Mayor, faces a High Court hearing into allegations of intimidation and vote fraud during May's ballot, when he won a second term.
