Boris Johnson's arguments on the so-called corona parties held in Downing Street during the pandemic are expected to be published this afternoon. Covid-19.

In December 2021, the former prime minister claimed in the British parliament that he was "unaware that these rallies were in breach of the rules" imposed by his government and has been referred to a seven-member parliamentary committee to investigate whether he was lying.

The dossier of his arguments, with the evidence, reaches 50 pages. He will present all this to the committee the day after tomorrow, Wednesday, which will judge whether Boris Johnson tried to "mislead" Parliament. If he is found guilty, his case will be referred to the plenary session of the House of Commons which will decide on his sentence.

If the parliament imposes a sentence of ten or more days of suspension from his parliamentary duties, then a by-election for his parliamentary seat will be called.

His cross-town group believes that Boris Johnson will be vindicated, arguing that the Downing Street rallies took place during a working day and that the former prime minister acted in "good faith".
