R.United.- Parliamentary commission orders Johnson to post documents at ‘Partygate’


The UK’s House of Commons Privileges Committee has asked the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, to send documents to deputies investigating the scandal of parties being held at Downing Street in full confinement imposed during the country’s coronavirus pandemic.

As such, deputies have asked the Government for evidence such as WhatsApp messages and photos, among other issues, as they investigated what became known as ‘Partygate’, an issue that led to an internal motion by the ‘Tories’, although Johnson walked away with that success.

Among the documents required are Johnson’s diaries during the period of time in which the parties were detained, according to information from the newspaper ‘The Guardian’.

Therefore, the commission gave the government until August 15 to submit the requested documents. Partygate was one of the scandals that led to Johnson’s resignation as leader of the Conservative Party, though further commission findings could overshadow his legacy.

The photos requested are those taken by Johnson’s official photographer, Andrew Parsons, during the celebration date.
