British police to investigate leak of ambassador's memos

  • UK police investigate Kim Darroch cables - CNN

Trump said his administration would no longer work with Darroch.

Shadow global minister Liz McInnes said Sir Kim Darroch changed into once "factual doing his job" and the legal investigation changed into once "welcome".

Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said: "It can not be conceivably right that newspapers or any other media organisation publishing such material should face prosecution".

In 2015, the United States, China, Britain, France, Russia and Germany signed a deal with Iran to limit its nuclear program in exchange for a partial lifting of global economic sanctions.

It would also allow in global inspectors in return for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions.

Mr Johnson has been accused of throwing the UK's ambassador to Washington "under the bus" when leaked memos triggered an extraordinary public row with Mr Trump.

The memos said rumours of "infighting and chaos" in the White House were mostly true.

"Moreover, they can't articulate any "day-after" strategy; and contacts with State Department this morning suggest no sort of plan for reaching out to partners and allies, whether in Europe or the region".

The Official Secrets Act bars public servants from making "damaging" disclosures of classified material. The Foreign Office criticized the leak but did not challenge the authenticity of the memos, which characterized the Trump administration as chaotic and inept.

In a trademark Twitter outburst, the president described Sir Kim as a "pompous fool" and a "very stupid guy", leaving the ambassador to conclude that his position in Washington had become "impossible".

The government launched an internal Whitehall inquiry into the publication following the reports.

The Mail on Sunday published details of the dispatch from Sir Kim Darroch, despite a warning from Scotland Yard that journalists who released further details of the ambassador's communications could be in breach of the Officials Secrets Act (OSA).

"I am satisfied that there has been damage caused to United Kingdom worldwide relations, and there would be clear public interest in bringing the person or people responsible to justice", Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said in a statement announcing the move.

A live ITV event on 9 July brought the two remaining contenders to replace outgoing UK Prime Minister Theresa May - Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt - together to thrash it out over such issues as Brexit and the Kim Darroch leak, as they seek to win over the Conservative votes required to propel them to 10 Downing Street.

The Metropolitan police has asked anyone with information to come forward: "Exercise your public and civic duty and call the police on 0800 789321 without delay", the statement said.

Following the backlash, Asst Commissioner Basu added that the Met had "no intention" of trying to prevent the publication of stories in the public interest.
