Son of struck-off nurse who compared NHS medics to Nazis calls for prosecution

The son of a struck-off nurse who compared NHS medics to Nazis at an anti-vaxxer rally today called on her to be prosecuted for her ‘very dangerous’ comments. 

Sebastian Shemirani, 21, is estranged from his conspiracy theorist mother Kate, 54, who says his criticism of her shows he is now part of a ‘global plot’ orchestrated by the CIA she believes will wipe out half the UK’s population in the next five years.

Asked what should happen to her, Sebastian said: ‘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.’

He said he believes his mother cannot be helped. ‘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.’   

Shemirani is being investigated by police amid claims she may have incited violence and broken hate crime laws.

Mrs Shemirani who qualified as a nurse 35 years ago, is being investigated by police saying medics were like Nazi doctors complicit in genocide and should face ‘Nuremberg trials’, said vaccination teams should be renamed ‘death squads’ and referred to the NHS as the ‘new Auschwitz’ during a rally with Piers Corbyn on Saturday.

Boris Johnson today condemned Shemirani comments, having previously called anti-vaxxers ‘nuts’, with his official spokesman saying: ‘Doctors and nurses have done a heroic job throughout this pandemic and continue to do so. Any violence, threats or intimidation… is completely unacceptable’, adding that if she has committed any crimes that is a ‘matter for the police’. 

She was also removed from social media and struck off by the Nursing and Midwifery Council last month for spreading misinformation, claiming that symptoms of Covid-19 were caused by 5G and that vaccines were ‘rushed through’ because ‘they want to kill you’. 

Shemirani said nursing colleagues who reported her to the watchdog were overweight and jealous of her, but a panel banned her from her job for public protection. 

Sebastian, a banking intern with JP Morgan who graduated from the London School of Economics after attending Eton, today launched an extraordinary evisceration of his mother’s bizarre conspiracy theories, which he says she tried to impose on her own children from a young age. 

Mr Shemirani is also concerned she has become a far-right poster girl despite having mixed-race children her supporters wouldn’t want to ‘exist’, because his father is Iranian. He said: ‘People are taking her as a source of truth and a saint and I wish I could tell them all that my mum is not the person you think she is. She’s someone with a massive amount of self-interest and loves being the centre of attention’. 

Responding to his claims she told the BBC: ‘From what I can see it would appear a ‘conspiracy theorist’ is actually now anyone who believes something other than what your controllers want them to believe. I find this deeply disturbing’.

The mother-of-four lives in East Sussex having separated from her husband Faramarz Shemirani in 2014, the father of her four children, and her remarks were branded ‘reprehensible’ and said they ‘could put nursing staff at risk’, according to the Royal College of Nursing.

Mother-of-four Kate Shemirani, a former nurse of 35 years, is adamant coronavirus is a hoax and claimed its symptoms are linked to the roll-out of 5G.

She has argued the vaccine is a political tool to gain access to and change people’s DNA, has likened lockdown to the Holocaust and insisted dancing NHS nurses will ‘stand trial for genocide’.

She wrote: ‘Murder. Genocide. The NHS is the new Auschwitz.’ 

She is a headliner at anti-lockdown rallies, having joined conspiracy theorists David Icke and Piers Corbyn at a protest in August.

She directed yobs to confront riot police whom she branded ‘dirty dogs’ and mocked for wearing face masks at a rally in September.

Her son Sebastian, 21, said he is concerned about the impact his mother’s claims could have on public health and branded her ‘dangerous’ and an ‘attention-seeker’.

Miss Shemirani has been suspended for 18 months to avoid the risk of harm to the public.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council is investigating her statements linking coronavirus vaccines to 5G mobile phone technology. 

Miss Shemirani said nurses who made accusations against her did so because they were overweight and jealous. She added: ‘We all know what women can be like.’

She has reportedly resigned as a registered nurse.

 

When asked if their relationship could recover he said: ‘I think she’s too far gone to be helped. I’m never going to have a relationship with my mum again. And that’s why it’s important that if someone is coming to you and says: ‘I’m starting to believe all this stuff’. Nip it in the bud. Because it takes a couple of years to completely lose somebody.

‘When this is over and everything she says is forgotten and the global genocide hasn’t happened people will forget about it. But the disaster that goes on in my family and the relationships she’s losing now that stuff stays forever’.

He heard from her earlier this month, as she appeared at two major anti-vaxxer rallies with Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers.

In a text she wrote: ‘You need to listen to me. You and your sister are going to die. The CIA has a plot and half the Uk’s population is going to be killed within five years’. 

Sebastian said his childhood was made a misery because of his mother’s obsession with conspiracy theories, which terrified him into thinking the end of the world is coming. He said: ‘It was hell’.

He was shown YouTube videos and ‘the Rothschilds are planning to go live on a space station and how there’s going to be this mass genocide, stuff like that. I’m ten, 11 years old and I’m bricking it. I can’t believe that the genocide is coming’. And when he left home at 17 he said: ‘She came to see me as part of this global plot’. 

Sebastian told the BBC he felt compelled to speak out having lost his mother. He said: ‘We’ve got to do it before these idea get bigger and more people fall down the route she’s trying to take them down. You can only prevent it before it happens’. 

Sebastian is worried that her cause has also been taken up by the far-right.

He said: ‘My dad is Iranian, all of her children are mixed race and she’s out there getting all this clout and attention from people who don’t think I should exist and certainly wouldn’t want to listen to her if they did any digging whatsoever’. 

Police are investigating Kate Shemirani, 54, who was removed from social media and suspended from the Nursing and Midwifery Council in July last year for spreading misinformation.

She had used her status as a health professional to spread ‘distorted propaganda’ about the Covid-19 pandemic, claiming that symptoms of the virus were caused by 5G and that vaccines were ‘rushed through’ because ‘they want to kill you’.

Shemirani had previously said nurses were complicit in genocide, said vaccination teams should be renamed ‘death squads’ and referred to the NHS as the ‘new Auschwitz’. 

In footage posted on Twitter on Saturday, she speaks to a crowd in Trafalgar Square through a loudhailer, telling them: ‘At the Nuremberg trials, the doctors and nurses, they stood trial, and they hung.

‘If you are a doctor or a nurse, now is the time to get off that bus.

‘Get off it and stand with us, the people, all around the world they are rising.’

Palliative care doctor Rachel Clarke uploaded footage of her remarks, tagging the Met Police and accusing Shemirani of ‘threatening NHS doctors with the noose’ and ‘inciting hatred’. 

Shemirani had told the crowd to ‘get the names’ of NHS workers, adding: ‘Email them to me. With a group of lawyers, we are collecting all that.’

A Met Police spokesman said that the remarks were being investigated.

‘We are aware of video circulating online showing a speech that occurred during a rally in Trafalgar Square on Saturday, 24 July.

‘Officers are carrying out inquiries to establish whether any offences have been committed. No arrests have been made.’

Shmirani's social media accounts with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram have since been blocked, but it is alleged she continued to post similar content and feature on other people's accounts on other social media sites such as Telegram, BitChute and Brighteon

THE NUREMBERG DOCTORS’ TRIAL  

The doctors’ trial was the first of 12 trials for war crimes of high-ranking German officials and industrialists that US authorities held in Nuremberg after the end of World War II.  

Twenty of the twenty-three defendants were medical doctors, and were said to have been involved in Nazi human experimentation and mass murder under the guise of euthanasia.    

The accused were faced with four charges of war crimes, including performing medical experiments, without the subjects’ consent, on prisoners of war and civilians of occupied countries, in the course of which experiments the defendants committed murders, brutalities, cruelties, tortures, atrocities, and other inhuman acts. 

They were also charged with planning and performing the mass murder of prisoners of war and civilians of occupied countries, stigmatised as aged, insane, incurably ill, deformed, and so on, by gas, lethal injections, and other means in nursing homes, hospitals, and asylums during the Euthanasia Program and participating in the mass murder of concentration camp inmates.

Accusations also included crimes against humanity and membership in a criminal organization, the SS.

The indictment was filed on 25 October 1946, and the trial lasted from 9 December that year until 20 August 1947.  Of the 23 defendants, seven were acquitted and seven received death sentences.

The remainder received prison sentences ranging from 10 years to life imprisonment.

All of the criminals sentenced to death were hanged on 2 June 1948 in Landsberg prison, Bavaria.  Josef Mengele, one of the leading Nazi doctors, had evaded capture. 

Last month it was revealed that an NMC Fitness to Practice Committee ruled that her misconduct was so serious that she should be struck from the nursing register permanently.

In its ruling, the chair of the panel found that Mrs Shemirani ‘attempted to encourage people to act contrary to public health guidance issued by the UK government by spreading this information through social media platforms and at public events’. 

The panel heard that Mrs Shemirani first joined the NMC register in June 1986 and had previously worked in the NHS but now describes herself as an ‘aesthetic nurse practitioner’.

The NMC received a ‘significant number of referrals’ about her conduct last year as she became a leading activist, speaker and promoter against vaccines and the existence of Covid-19.

She used her social media brand ‘Kate Shemirani – Natural Nurse in a Toxic World’ to spread her opinions, often referring to herself as a registered nurse and wearing a nurse’s uniform in her videos.

The panel heard her describe face masks as ‘dirty rags’ and ‘muzzles’. She claimed they ‘do not stop viruses’ and that ‘wearing a mask makes people very sick and increases the risk of bacteria and the risk of infections’.

According to her, ingredients in vaccines include ‘acetone and aborted foetal cell tissue that turns into cancer’.

She said the HPV ‘kills girls on the spot’ and described the Covid-19 vaccines as ‘downright deadly’, adding that ‘there is no C-19 other than the one pre loaded into a syringe’.

Her social media accounts with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram have since been blocked, but the panel heard that she continued to post similar content and feature on other people’s accounts on other social media sites such as Telegram, BitChute and Brighteon.

She was interviewed on main stream national media networks as a leading ‘anti-vaxxer’, including on BBC One Panorama, Sky News, and ITV Wales. 

Reaching it’s decision, the panel heard how she also used her social media platform to compare health organisations with Nazi death camps.
