Scotland Yard launches criminal investigation into Sir Kim Darroch leaks

  • Johnson says his comments about U.S. envoy were a factor in his resignation

"The administration is set upon an act of diplomatic vandalism, seemingly for ideological and personality reasons - it was Obama's deal", ambassador Kim Darroch wrote in a diplomatic cable in May 2018. It would also allow in global inspectors in return for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions.

Trump completely lacked an exit strategy when he pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal and made the decision out of pure animosity towards his predecessor, the ex-UK ambassador to the USA said, according to a new embarrassing leak.

"I think the Government and the police are fully entitled to find out who was involved in that and if they can to prevent it happening again".

The Metropolitan Police has since launched a criminal investigation into the leaking of his communications, which described the Trump administration as "inept" and "uniquely dysfunctional".

After Trump said he would no longer work with Darroch, and he was disinvited from several events, the British ambassador resigned on Wednesday.

In a tweet on Wednesday, the U.S. president also accused Iran of "secretly" enriching uranium, in violation of the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal that the United States pulled out of previous year.

The British ambassador is said to have highlighted splits amongst United States presidential advisors and that the White House did not have a "day-to-day" strategy of what to do following withdrawal from the deal.

The ambassador said his position had become "impossible" after the US President denounced him as a "very stupid guy" and a "pompous fool" on Twitter, and announced his resignation.

But Sir Kim stepped down as USA ambassador on Wednesday, saying it was "impossible" for him to continue.

Journalists are not above the law, but it is understood "in a free, liberal and democratic society" that the media "should be free to report on leaked documents that they believe are in the public interest", says Ian Murray, executive director of the Society of Editors.

His rival, Mr Johnson, said it was correct the person responsible for the leak was "hunted down and prosecuted" but it was wrong for police to target the media.

In a statement, Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu urged the person responsible to hand themselves in and face the consequences.

Mr Osborne, now editor of the Evening Standard, appeared to suggest the statement which called for any leaked documents to be returned to the Government was written by a junior officer and Mr Basu should distance himself from the comments.

The U.K. Official Secrets Act of 1989 effectively criminalizes the unlawful disclosure of certain sensitive information, including matters concerning worldwide relations.

The Mail on Sunday has defended its decisions to publish further details from the memos. "And, even when you pressed, none had anything much to say about the day after, or a Plan B, beyond reimposition of U.S. sanctions".
