Five new accusations have been made against Dominic Raab

Dominic Raab: he remains Justice Secretary, despite the fact that the number of accusations against him has almost tripled.

Still he remains in post, though.

With five new accusations, the number of complaints against Dominic Raab – the Justice Secretary, has risen to eight.

He denies allegations of bullying and says he has behaved professionally throughout his time as a government minister.

The three complaints already under investigation related to his time as foreign secretary and Brexit secretary, as well as at the Ministry of Justice.

The prime minister’s official spokesman said the [five new] claims related to Mr Raab’s previous tenure as justice secretary.

Labour’s Keir Starmer has called for Raab’s status as a minister (and a Conservative MP?) to be suspended. That is, after all, what would happen to a Labour Party member.

Senior lawyer Adam Tolley KC is investigating all eight complaints against Raab. He will report to Rishi Sunak, who will make the final decision on whether Raab’s conduct breached the ministerial code and should be sacked.

But we know that Tory prime ministers may abuse this duty. Boris Johnson cleared Priti Patel, despite abundant evidence against her.

And Starmer has already said it was “a consequence of having a weak prime minister” that Raab continues to serve in government while complaints about his behaviour are investigated.

Let us hope that we are told all the information we need to make up our own minds, once judgement is passed.
