In December, Sky News revealed that five more complaints had been filed against Raab due to his inappropriate behavior and harassment by other employees. And a month earlier, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak approved Raab’s request to investigate the official complaints, of which there were then three.
The situation, however, is escalating not only around Raab, but also around the prime minister himself, and if the allegations against Raab are confirmed, Sunak could also be threatened with dismissal.
It all started with a publication in The Guardian. The publication, citing sources, told how after Raab’s re-election to the post of deputy prime minister, about ten and a half office workers were taken to a separate room, where they were offered to change jobs. Some, the newspaper writes, burst into tears, although some accepted the offer.
Newspaper sources report that Raab created a “culture of fear” at the ministry, attacking him, often being rude and unprofessional.
