Did Russia Hack the Former British Prime Minister’s Phone?

A government spokesman said there are “robust systems in place to protect against cyber threats”. “It is important that all these security issues are investigated and dealt with at the highest level,” noted opposition Labor MP Yvette Cooper.

A source told the newspaper that the “compromised” phone was placed in a locked safe at a government-secured location after messages, including “very sensitive discussions” about the war in Ukraine, were hacked.

Lack of security

The hack was discovered this summer when LizTruss was foreign secretary campaigning to become Conservative party leader and prime minister, the newspaper said. He claimed that “the details were suppressed” by then Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Simon Case, his most senior political adviser.

“We need an independent emergency inquiry to reveal the truth,” said Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran.

The report of the incident comes as Home Affairs Minister Suella Braverman was reappointed by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak following his resignation over a security breach. She allegedly sent a top secret document via her personal email.
