Police watchdog has delayed Boris Johnson-Jennifer Arcuri inquiry. Corruption?

Boris Johnson and Jennifer Arcuri: What have they been up to? And why won’t the appropriate authorities investigate?

Where is the corruption investigation into Boris Johnson’s relationship with Jennifer Arcuri?

That lady’s own pronouncements in the days and weeks after the initial allegations were made should be enough to prompt an inquiry.

But nothing has happened. We have heard nothing.

It’s like the report into Russian interference in UK politics – as though someone is hoping we’ll all forget about it.

Well, we haven’t.

And the longer the delay, the more suspicious its causes – and the people responsible for them – seem.

That means people like Sol Naseem, IOPC London director, who is apparently insisting that the inquiry isn’t being delayed – just that his organisation is continuing to collect information and take legal advice.

Would that be advice on how to avoid conducting any kind of inquiry at all into apparent wrongdoing by the man who is now UK prime minister?

The police watchdog is facing accusations that it is dragging its feet on a decision about whether to investigate Boris Johnson for possible criminal misconduct over his friendship with the US businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri when he was London mayor.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) insists it has received no pressure from the government over the decision, which had been expected before last month’s general election, or its timing.

In October the IOPC indicated it would take about a month to decide whether Johnson had a case to answer. But the watchdog now says it is still conducting a “scoping exercise” on the decision. It has also continued to request new information from the mayor’s promotion agency, London and Partners (L&P), this month.
