Jennifer Arcuri, the former glamour model caught up in several inquiries into Boris Johnson, has called the allegations against the prime minister “an orchestrated attack”.
The accusations being thrown at the current prime minister are that he granted thousands of pounds of taxpayers money to the tech entrepreneur and giving her privileged access to overseas trade missions while he was serving as mayor of London.
Hitting out Ms Arcuri said she felt she was being used as “collateral” and said the claims are totally false.
She said”I had every right to go on three overseas trade missions with Mr Johnson. This is an orchestrated attack on me. Someone has gone to great lengths to put together a massive attack and I stand by the legitimacy of my business. I am in fact a legitimate businesswoman.”
The former model and businesswoman has though not denied an affair with the Prime Minister when questioned.
