Dear Ed,

MP GEORGE Galloway and the Respect Group on Tower Hamlets council deplore the brutal attack on Cllr Abdul Matin in the street at Bethnal Green on Monday (April 6), which has left him in hospital.

We express our utmost sympathy for Cllr Matin and for his family and wish him a speedy and complete recovery.

We know the police are giving this a high priority and urge the maximum cooperation with the police to bring the perpetrators to justice.

There is speculation and rumour about the identity of those who attacked Cllr Matin and about the motives for the assault.

But it is best for the police investigation and the community if speculation is kept to a minimum and we deal only with fact.

George Galloway, MP

House of Commons, Westminster

Cllr Abjol Miah

Cllr Dulal Uddin

Cllr Mamun Rashid

Cllr Fozol Miah

Cllr Harun Miah

Cllr Abdul Munim

Tower Hamlets Council

Town Hall, Blackwall
