British Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Justice Dominic Raab’s official investigation report, which examines “complaints of abuse and bullying of colleagues at work”, was prepared by Lawyer Adam Tolley KC, specializing in human resources and employment, at the request of British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. The report, which was delivered to Prime Minister Sunak as of yesterday, was presented to the public by the British Prime Ministry on its website today.
GO TOO MUCH IN CRITICSThe report states that official complaints about ill-treatment and bullying against civil servants during the time he worked as the Ministry of Justice were examined, and 66 interviews were held with the complainants. Lawyer Adam Tolley KC, in his 48-page report, stated that Minister Raab ‘goes too far’ while criticizing several times and intimidating employees. He stated that Raab made unconstructive criticism about the quality of the work done and behaved in a derogatory manner. Lawyer Tolley KC also stated in his report that Minister Raab did not make any physical contact or speak abusive words. Minister Dominic Raab, on the other hand, left his post by writing a letter of resignation addressed to Prime Minister Sunak, after the report was made public today. Raab criticized the low threshold for ‘bullying’, saying the report sets a dangerous precedent. “I have requested an investigation and pledged to resign if there is any evidence of bullying. I believe it is important to keep my word,” Minister Dominic Raab said in his letter.
