Rishi Sunak warns of international ‘bad actors’ – POLITICO

To date, POLITICO has directly verified that at least 21 British politicians received unsolicited WhatsApp messages through one or both phone numbers, which alternately used the names “Charlie” or “Abi.” Those targeted include Labor and Conservative MPs, including a serving minister in the British government. The origin of the messages remains unknown.

At least two police forces, in London and Leicestershire, are investigating the scandal. Sunak urged people to “let police investigations take their course”.

The Prime Minister’s remarks come after Hazel Grove MP William Wragg quit as Conservative whip on Tuesday evening after leaking the home phone numbers of a number of MPs.

“It’s a good reminder to everyone, but particularly those in public life, to obviously be careful about the unsolicited messages that they receive,” Sunak said on Wednesday when pressed about leaving Wragg .
