Nadhim Zahawi promises to take action if police investigate allegations of sexual assault on MP

A senior Conservative MP faces suspension from the party over allegations of rape and sexual assault.

Party leader Nadhim Zahawi says he will “take action” if police launch an investigation into the unnamed MP.

Mr Zahawi also revealed that the party had raised the matter with the police and the Cabinet's decorum and ethics team

Mr Zahawi said yesterday he was made aware of the allegations when he took up the position in October and had commissioned independent legal advice.

He told Times Radio: “That’s something the police are looking at now.

“Should there be an investigation by the police, we will of course take action. But at the moment I’m waiting for the legal advice on hedging in this regard. It is right to do this right.”

Mr Zahawi also revealed that the party had raised the matter with the police and the Cabinet’s decorum and ethics team.

The Sun and TalkTV exclusively revealed last week that the MP had been the subject of complaints from other Tories, which had been forwarded to the police.

The Met said it was investigating after receiving allegations of “serious sexual assault” from a third party over a two-year period.
