British Home Secretary Priti Patel (Patel) suspected of bullying subordinates. The Times writes about this with reference to the data of an official investigation conducted Advisor to Prime Minister Boris Johnson Alex Allan… The investigation began after publications in the media, in which Patel was accused of intimidating and humiliating subordinates, as well as unreasonable nagging at them while working.
As the Times reports, Patel violated the ministerial code. The audit showed that she “did not always meet the high standards” of the minister. The document, which is cited by the publication, says that Patel humiliated colleagues, made excessive demands on them and created an “atmosphere of fear” in the workplace. “Some of her actions can be regarded as bullying,” sums up Allan.
The report is due to be published on Friday 20 November. Nevertheless, according to the newspaper, the British Prime Minister does not intend to demand the resignation of Patel and plans to consider her actions unintentional. The Times also suggests that Johnson is going to criticize Patel’s subordinates for not expressing their claims and accusations before this information reached the media and became public.
After accusations against the minister, he was dismissed Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Philip Ruthnam… He later sued the government for unjustified dismissal.
