, Dec 9 () –
The United Kingdom Government is considering expanding the investigations beyond the alleged Christmas party that took place in December 2020 in Downing Street, after the local media reported several meetings that would have also taken place in full escalation of restrictions.
The Minister of Health, Sajid Javid, has assured the BBC that the audit “does not stick” to a single date, that of the party that would have taken place on December 18, 2020 and to which the then press secretary alluded, Allegra Stratton, who resigned on Wednesday after the broadcast of a video in which she joked about the fact that the government’s own health recommendations had not been met.
Javid has stressed that it is “important” to clarify what happened and, in statements to the BBC, has pointed out the possibility of examining the general conduct of the office and, in particular, meetings that took place on December 13 and 27 from last year.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has confessed “furious” at the public jokes about the controversial party, but for now the Government insists that all the measures that were in force in December 2020, when the authorities recommended to the citizenship should make extreme contacts and meet only with their family bubbles.
Johnson has promised punishments if it is shown that someone on his team violated the restrictions, although Javid stressed this Thursday that, as far as he knows, there was no party on December 18. The Police have ruled out investigating this meeting on their own due to “lack of evidence.”
