Another scandal threatens the British Conservative Party: an MP is arrested for allegations of rape and alleged abuse. We don’t yet know who it is. However, his parliamentary group banned him from entering parliament.
London police have reportedly arrested a British Conservative MP over allegations of rape and alleged abuse. A man in his 50s is in custody, Metropolitan Police said. The sexual abuse cases reported in early 2020 allegedly took place in London between 2002 and 2009.
The police investigation into the unnamed Tory MP, which was reported by the UK news agency PA, among others, is still ongoing. According to the police, the person concerned is also the subject of an investigation for possible abuse of power.
The leader of the Conservative Party has instructed the MPs concerned not to enter the premises of Parliament while the investigation is ongoing. However, the accused was not initially expelled from the party.
MPs from Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party have repeatedly made headlines in recent months for misconduct. For a long time, the ‘Partygate’ case about outbursts in Downing Street during the Corona lockdown kept London in suspense, then it came to various cases of abuse and a parliamentarian caught watching porn at the House of Commons.
