Police in London have launched an investigation into the much-publicized parties in Prime Minister’s residence 10 Downing Street during the shutdown in England.
This is confirmed by Police Chief Cressida Dick to the London City Council.
“Police are now investigating a number of gatherings that took place in 10 Downing Street and the Whitehall Government Building, with a view to possible breaches of the coronary restrictions,” Dick said.
She adds that there is no guarantee that the investigation will lead to punitive measures for everyone involved.
In recent weeks, it has been revealed in the British media that a number of parties and gatherings were held in the prime minister’s residence in 2020 and 2021, in violation of the coronary restrictions that were in force in England at the time.
No later than Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office had to admit that there was a birthday party for the Prime Minister in the Prime Minister’s residence in June 2020, when social events were not allowed.
Later this week, it is expected that there will be a report from the official Sue Gray about the parties and the extent of the violations. The government has confirmed that this investigation is continuing as planned, and that Gray and the police are in contact with each other.
