BORIS Johnson WON'T face a criminal probe into his close friendship with businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri, it has been reported.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) is set to reveal its decision this lunchtime on whether the Prime Minister's links to the technology entrepreneur will result in an official investigation.
Sources told the Daily Mirror that the Independent Office for Police Conduct had found some evidence of a possible “intimate relationship” between the pair, but that it was “unnecessary” to launch a criminal investigation.
They are set to say that the PM will not face any further action from them.
But it could now mean the London Assembly will launch a probe – who paused theirs last year while waiting for more evidence.
The 35-year-old ex model was alleged to have had an affair with the PM helping her get access to £126,000 grants and sponsorship for her companies.
Ms Arcuri previously refused six times to answer whether she had an affair with the PM.
The PM has insisted “everything was done entirely in the proper way” over his professional dealings with Miss Arcuri.
But he would not deny having an extramarital affair with her while he was London Mayor.
Mr Johnson formed a close friendship with Miss Arcuri after the pair met in 2012, and took her on three trade trips with him.
