UK Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab has resigned from his position in the wake of bullying allegations leveled against him.
"I am writing to resign from your government, following receipt of the report arising from the inquiry conducted by Adam Tolley KC. I called for the inquiry and undertook to resign if it made any finding of bullying whatsoever. I believe it is important to keep my word," read Raab's statement.
In November last year, allegations surfaced about Raab with former staff claiming he created a "culture of fear" in their departments.
Raab however denied the allegations and requested an investigation into himself after two formal complaints were made.
Raab was appointed as the Dy PM and Jusctice Secretary by Rishi Sunak after he took office in October.
"It has been a privilege to serve you as Deputy Prime Minister, Justice Secretary and Lord Chancellor. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work as a Minister in a range of roles and departments since 2015, and pay tribute to the many outstanding civil servants with whom I have worked," he said.
Raab's departure follows Sunak's decision to dismiss Tory party chairman Nadhim Zahawi from his post in January after the former chancellor was found to have broken the ministerial code over his tax affairs.
