Boris Johnson faces days of questioning as part of an inquiry looking into his government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The politician resigned from office in 2022 after it came to light that he had broken confinement rules by organizing parties.
Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, expressed his regret on Wednesday for “the pain, loss and suffering” experienced by victims of the pandemic. Johnson faces interrogation days as part of an investigation examining his government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Johnson thus began his statement before the official investigation into the pandemic, chaired by Judge Heather Hallett, who in this second of four phases examines the management of the authorities.
They denounce their incompetence
The former prime minister resigned from his position in September 2022 after it came to light that the politician had violated the rules of the bulls at his Downing Street residence with the celebration of several parties.
Families of pandemic victims pressured Johnson to take part in the public inquiry into the matter, something that he finally accepted.
The former conservative leader has been accused by other witnesses in this investigation of having advocated letting older people die, of not understanding scientific graphs and governing with incompetence and chaos.
