No probe into UK Home Secretary’s breach

Suella Braverman, the UK Home Secretary, will not be investigated to determine whether she attempted to benefit from a free pass, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said on Wednesday. The media had revealed last weekend that the boss of the “Home Office” would have sought preferential treatment after being stopped for speeding.

After this offense committed last summer, Suella Braverman would indeed have wanted to register for a private awareness course to avoid the withdrawal of points on her driving license. She would have called on officials who were then under her orders to facilitate the process. However, the latter are not supposed to intervene in the context of a personal request.

The Labor opposition had called for investigations into the actions of the minister, an important figure on the right wing of the Conservative party. Rishi Sunak for his part felt that no “breach of the ministerial code” could be blamed on Suella Braverman, while admitting that other behavior would have been preferable.

The person concerned made it clear that she had been subject to a fine and a withdrawal of points on her driving license. She also denied any wrongdoing. “I deeply regret that my actions could have given rise to this perception, and I apologize for the distraction caused,” she responded in a letter.
