Iranian exile Niyak Ghorbanil was thrown to the ground at an anti-Israel protest in London while holding a “Hamas are Terrorists” sign.

Here is the moment Stasi Met Police arrested Ghorbanii Niyak.

You can clearly see he did nothing wrong.

They told him he was being arrested for assault but then released him as they realised they were on film.

The Telegraph reports:

As police held him down he shouted “Shame on you” before saying “I wrote down Hamas is a terrorist organisation . . but they arrested me”.

The 38-year-old was de-arrested and released shortly after, with police saying he had been held for his own safety after an alleged assault was carried out against him.

Onlookers could be heard criticising the apparent disparity in police acting over Mr Ghorbani’s banner, but not some of those displayed in the main crowd of pro-Palestine protestors.

Ghorbani shared the following on X after the incident, “Just watch the video; it shows police grabbing me from amidst a crowd of Hamas supporters, pushing me back, forcibly taking my placard, throwing me to the ground with five others, and arresting me.”

“When I asked for the reason, they first said I intended to provoke the protesters, then after a few minutes, they said a woman had complained of harassment by me. After my friends presented the videos to the police at the detention site, they were convinced they had made a mistake! The police are completely reckless, and it’s shameful that they try to cover up their mistake without apology by lying! Shame on you, shame”

I was released without any charges, but Hamas supporters are freely roaming the city!

It’s shameful!#HamasTerrorist https://t.co/2lkXOKKjQ8 pic.twitter.com/fHSRXgl07i
