Johnson closes the “Cummings case” after ruling out the police taking action against the adviser

May 28, 2020

Prime Minister Boris Johnson looks at the controversy surrounding his chief adviser Dominic Cummings’ failure to comply with the detention rules after police say he does not intend to take action against him. He may have committed a “minor offense”.

The Durham police force, to which Cummings moved on March 27 to isolate himself on his father’s property because he could have help taking care of his son, has stated in a statement that he is not a “crime” in relation to that, have committed restrictions to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

However, with regard to his eviction to Barnard Castle on April 12 with his wife and son, after considering the circumstances of the trip and what Cummings himself said, the conclusion was that “There could have been a minor violation of the rules that intervention by the police would have been necessary. “

However, the Durham police said in their statement that it was “minor since there was no apparent violation of social detachment,” and although he was arrested by an agent at the time, it would have been limited to that to advise him of the risks of traveling during the pandemic.
