British police start a criminal investigation into the DK envoy on Trump.
British police reported Friday that a “criminal investigation” of a British diplomatic cable criticizing US President Donald Trump had begun, leading to the resignation of the British Ambassador to Washington.
London Metropolitan Police reported that the Terrorism Command, which investigated possible violations of the British Secret Law, had launched an investigation into the end of Kim Darroch’s correspondence.
“I am convinced that UK international relations have been damaged and that there is a clear public interest in bringing those responsible or people to justice,” Deputy Commissioner Neil Basu said in a statement announcing the decision. .
Darroch’s personal news disclosure from last weekend in London, which described the description of the Trump administration as “embarrassing” and “very non-functioning,” caused a wave of angry tweaks from the US president.
After Trump said that he would not work with Daroc, but after several events he was released, the British Ambassador resigned on Wednesday.
On Friday, the US President said Britain must end the “leak” problem.
The British government launched its own leak investigation this week and found that it had called police to find out whether documents protected by the Official Secret Law were distributed.
Basu said the disclosure of information could be a “criminal problem” and asked the perpetrators to “get involved as soon as possible, explain themselves and suffer the consequences”.
“In addition, who knows or suspects that he is responsible or has information, please continue,” he added.
