UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak officer has been arrested over alleged bets on the date of the UK general election.

The Metropolitan Police reported on Wednesday evening that a constable from the Royalty and Specialist Protection Command, which provides close protection for the British leader, had been suspended and arrested as part of a Gambling Commission investigation into alleged bets related to the timing of the general election.

The BBC first reported this on Wednesday.

The Met stated that it had immediately referred the matter to its own standards bureau, and that the officer had also been removed from operational duties. The Independent Office for Police Conduct has also been informed.

The officer was arrested on Monday on suspicion of misconduct in public office. He was taken into custody and bailed pending further inquiries.

The Gambling Commission continues to lead the investigation into the alleged betting offences, and our investigation is running in parallel to that, the police added.

A spokesperson for the Gambling Commission stated that it is investigating the possibility of offences concerning the date of the election.

This is an ongoing investigation, and the commission cannot provide any further details at this time.

This incident follows the news that Sunak’s close parliamentary aide, Craig Williams, was separately placed under investigation by the Gambling Commission for an alleged bet days before Sunak revealed the surprise date of the UK general election on July 4.
