The British composer Matthew Scott, head of music at the National Theatre from 2006 to 2016, is facing a police investigation after apparently posting the following on a BBC News report about the Israeli elections:
Scott: ‘The time for the erasure of Israel and the completion of the cleansing process is rapidly approaching.’
The comment has since been taken down.
Scott is a Professor of Composition in Music at the University of Southampton. His agency has de-accessed his site.
UPDATE: Where’s he disappeared?
