A man who wore a t-shirt with offensive wording relating to the conflict in the Middle East while visiting a Jewish area has been jailed.
Robert Hughes was seen by members of the Jewish community walking along Kings Road in Prestwich on the morning of 9 October.
The 69-year-old from Whitefield, Bury, admitted antisemitic hate crime charges.
He was jailed for 12 weeks by magistrates in Bolton.
Senior crown prosecutor Matthew Siddall said: “Robert Hughes targeted an area in north Manchester, where he does not live, which is a predominantly Jewish area in order to provoke a reaction with the t-shirt he was wearing.
“He caused upset and distress to all those he came across that day with the offensive words he displayed on his clothing.
“While individuals have a right to freedom of expression, we won’t hesitate to prosecute those who deliberately undermine public order by demonstrating hostility to anyone’s race or religion.”
