London Police announced on Tuesday 29 March that they had fined twenty for violating anti-Covid rules following an investigation into “PartyGate”, parties held in full confinement in British governing bodies. A scandal that weakened Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
“We will start sending 20 fine notices for violation of rules related to Kovid-19 from today”, Scotland Yard said in a statement without specifying who the sanctioned individuals were. Related incidents were also not disclosed in order to avoid identification of the perpetrators of the crimes.
Considered an ejection seat in the face of a majority defection in January, Mr Johnson appears to have faced a crisis, particularly in the context of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. But the police’s findings, which therefore believe that crimes have actually occurred, could restart the case, especially if it turns out that Mr Johnson is directly targeted by the fine.
Scotland Yard screened a dozen rallies in 2020 and 2021. Boris Johnson is believed to have been involved in some of them.
The revelations of occasional celebratory events in places of power during the pandemic, when the British were asked to significantly curtail their social interactions to fight against the spread of Covid-19, have shaken power.
Mr Johnson, whose popularity fell sharply after the scandal, had made his foreign minister before the deputy, but refused any resignation, relying on the findings of the police investigation.
The police have not completed their investigation in this case and have promised to put “everything” for progress ” rapidly “, Police said further fines can be imposed if there is sufficient evidence of violations.
