British ex-Prime Minister Boris Johnson plans to release “scoop” evidence that shows his innocence in a case of partying during the coronavirus pandemic. This is reported by Telegraph, citing sources.
“Boris Johnson prepares to release ‘scandalous’ evidence that he thinks exonerates him in the party case,” – reported in the material of the publication, citing sources.
The interlocutors emphasize that the evidence of Johnson’s innocence will include messages from his advisers. They informed the former Prime Minister of Great Britain that no anticovid rules were violated during the parties.
“The fact is that he told Parliament what he considered the truth at that time. There is documentary evidence that will show that he was advised to say what he said,” – quote the words of the interlocutor in the publication.
Earlier it was reported that on March 22, the British ex-premier will testify in the parliamentary committee on privileges as part of the continuation of the investigation into the parties during the COVID-19 pandemic. If it turns out that Boris Johnson deceived Parliament, he could be suspended from activities in the House of Commons for 10 days. It may also give rise to a petition to withdraw Johnson’s parliamentary mandate.
