    Police watchdog to decide whether to probe PM Johnson's links to businesswoman

    The police watchdog is to decide whether or not to investigate Boris Johnson for a potential criminal offence of misconduct in public office while he was London mayor.

    It is alleged businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri received favourable treatment due to her friendship with Mr Johnson.

    The prime minister was referred by the Greater London Authority on Friday.

    Mr Johnson has denied any impropriety and said things were done "in the normal way".

    The allegations regarding Mr Johnson's friendship with technology entrepreneur Ms Arcuri first emerged last weekend in the Sunday Times.

    They refer to claims that Ms Arcuri joined trade missions led by Mr Johnson when he was mayor of London and that her company received several thousand pounds in sponsorship grants.

    The Greater London Authority's monitoring officer - whose job it is to monitor the conduct of the mayor and other members - said it had written to the police watchdog, the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

    It said it had referred the PM to the IOPC "so it can assess whether or not it is necessary to investigate the former mayor of London for the criminal offence of misconduct in public office".

    It added that it has recorded a "conduct matter" against Mr Johnson which happens when there is information that indicates that a criminal offence may have been committed.

    But it does not mean that a criminal offence is proved in any way, the GLA's monitoring officer added.

    "The IOPC will now consider if it is necessary for the matter to be investigated."

    The reason the IOPC is involved is because the role of the mayor of London is also London's police and crime commissioner.

    The IOPC deals with complaints against police forces in England and Wales

    In a letter to the PM setting out the referral, the monitoring officer says: "The conduct matter relates to your time as mayor of London between 2008 and 2016.

    "During this time it has been brought to my attention that you maintained a friendship with Ms Jennifer Arcuri and as a result of that friendship allowed Ms Arcuri to participate in trade missions and receive sponsorship monies in circumstances when she and her companies could not have expected otherwise to receive those benefits."

    The link in the OP is missing...

    This looks like a genuine scandal for Bullingdon Boy, Elizabeth’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

    When Boris Johnson was Mayor of London between 2008 and 2016, he twice brought former model, pole dancer, the American Jennifer Arcuri with him to Tel Aviv (Israel). This was against regulations.

    See Johnson appearing at an Innotech event with Arcuri.


    Boris also regularly visited Arcuri’s flat in Shoreditch High Street, east London and met her in New York, Singapore and Malaysia: https://www.timesofisrael.com/uks-jo...v-while-mayor/

    Jennifer Arcuri first met Boris Johnson in 2012. When Arcuri had to leave the UK because she couldn´t get a visa, Johnson appeared at 4 events for her company Innotech, which organises summits for technology entrepreneurs.
    After Johnson had done his stuff, Arcuri easily got enough money to apply for a visa.
    In October 2013, Innotech received a £10,000 grant and another £1,500 from London and Partners, which Johnson controlled as mayor.

    Boris Johnson awarded money to Jennifer Arcuri's tech companies, including a £100,000 grant after she had already returned to the USA for which she wasn’t eligible because her company Hacker House wasn’t based in the UK.

    In December 2014, Arcuri attended the D5 Summit of “digital governments” hosted at Buckingham Palace by Royal paedophile the Duke of York, Prince Andrew. It is unclear how she secured a ticket to the event; her Innotech Network was not among 9 British companies formally invited.
    In 2016, Arcuri claimed that her Hacker House is developing “cyber badges for schools, on request of the Duke of York, to understand the awareness and ethics of cybersecurity”: https://www.theguardian.com/politics...on-backed-firm

    Jennifer Arcuri has been photographed with some other high level UK politrickster.
    Arcuri has a well-known cousin, internet expert Lawrence “Larry” Lessig.


    Larry Lessig has defended his friend Joichi Ito for taking donations from the pervert associate of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein, at the M.I.T. Media Lab.
    Lessig has been a trustee of the Internet Society (ISOC), where an earlier trustee was none other than Ghislaine's sister Christine Maxwell (1997-2002).

    The Maxwell family has been very active in high tech companies.
    Christine Maxwell was CEO and President of Chilead Inc., that provided the FBI with its counterterrorism database.

    Arcuri has also invited Milo Yiannopoulos for her events, who works for Trump’s spin doctor Steve Bannon, who visited Epstein's Paris home.
    Arcuri was also a friend of Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1...226815488.html

    Boris Johnson says there was "no interest to declare" regarding links with US businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri.

    It is alleged Ms Arcuri received favourable treatment due to her friendship with Mr Johnson.

    The police watchdog are deciding whether to investigate the prime minister for a potential criminal offence of misconduct in public office while he was London mayor.

    Mr Johnson said everything had been done "with full propriety".

    The allegations, first reported in the Sunday Times, claim Ms Arcuri joined trade missions led by Mr Johnson when he was mayor of London and that her company received several thousand pounds in sponsorship grants.

    The paper has also reported Ms Arcuri told four friends that she had an affair with Mr Johnson while he was mayor of London.

    On Friday, the Greater London Authority's monitoring officer referred the prime minister to the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC) - whose job it is to oversee the conduct of the mayor and other members of the GLA.

    Asked on the Andrew Marr show if he had declared any interest, Mr Johnson said "there was no interest to declare".

    "I was proud of everything I did as mayor of London," he added.

    He also attacked Sadiq Khan, the current mayor of London, saying the Labour politician "could possibly spend more time investing in police officers than he is investing in press officers and peddling this kind of stuff".

    Mr Johnson added that someone in his position "expects a lot of shot and shell".
