Boris Johnson to face court over accusations he misled the public during the EU referendum campaign

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Boris Johnson is to be summonsed to court to face accusations of misconduct in a public office, over claims he made that the UK sent the EU £350m a week.

It relates to comments the former Mayor of London made while campaigning for the UK to leave the EU before the 2016 referendum.

The summons was brought by a private prosecution against the former foreign secretary, saying he misled the public during the campaign and again at the 2017 general election. Marcus Ball alleges Mr Johnson misrepresented the amount of money Britain sends the EU by using the figure £350m a week.
