THE son of a notorious conspiracy theorist who compared medics to Nazis has said his mum should be prosecuted.

Sebastian Shemirani has described his mother Kate Shemirani, a former nurse from East Sussex, as “dangerous” before adding that she “cannot be helped”.

Police are currently investigating comments made by Ms Shemarani at a speech in Trafalgar Square last week in which she compared NHS staff to Nazi war criminals.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme, Sebastian said he believes his mother should be prosecuted before “somebody acts on the bad advice she’s giving the country.”

He said: “[She should] be prosecuted under existing laws, or if there aren’t existing laws in place that say that what she is doing is illegal then we should be having a national conversation about what laws we should be bringing in and drafting up legislation for that.

“Because it’s only a matter of time before somebody acts on the bad advice that she’s giving the country.”

“My mum is definitely beyond help,” Sebastian told the programme.

“The problem is that she’s so arrogant in her world view and really, truly believes that she is a conduit for the truth on a spiritual level, not just a scientific level.”

He added: “It’s impossible to talk to somebody when they’ve got that level of God complex.”

Ms Shemerani called on supporters in Trafalgar Square to send her the details of doctors and nurses who had worked to save lives during the pandemic.

She said: “At the Nuremberg Trials, the doctors and nurses stood trial and they hung.”

The former nurse has been widely condemned, including by Downing Street, and London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

The mother-of-four's speech, which was recorded and is now circulating on social media, was viewed more than 800,000 times in the first hour it was uploaded.

The Metropolitan Police said officers are working to establish whether any crimes have been committed.

A spokesman said: “We are aware of video circulating online showing a speech that occurred during a rally in Trafalgar Square on Saturday July 24. Officers are carrying out inquiries to establish whether any offences have been committed. No arrests have been made.”
