U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Finance Minister Rishi Sunak are set to be fined by police for breaching Covid-19 lockdown laws, the government said Tuesday.
Johnson and Sunak “have today received notification that the Metropolitan Police intend to issue them with fixed penalty notices,” a spokesperson at Downing Street said in a statement.
“We have no further details, but we will update you again when we do,” they added.
It comes shortly after police confirmed that more than 50 fines had now been issued over the so-called “partygate” probe.
