A CCTV image of a man wanted in connection with a homophobic sticker campaign in east London has been released by police.
The stickers began to appear in February. They bore the message: ‘Arise and warn. Gay free zone. Verily Allah is severe in punishment’.
It has been suggested that the stickers were placed around the area – including outside gay bars The George & Dragon and The Joiners Arms, along Whitechapel High Street and outside a school – by extremist group Islam4UK.
Anyone with information which may help the investigation is being urged to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, quoting background log number B13/LUA of 29/03/2011.
Alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
