Varadkar is not being prosecuted for leaking GP documents

After being investigated for passing confidential agreements with one medical organization to another, Tanaiste (Irish deputy pm) Leo Varadkar won't be prosecuted. This happened in 2019, when he was Taoiseach (prime Minister). Varadkar had previously stated to the Irish parliament that he had given Maitiu O Tuathail a copy from an agreement between the government of Ireland and the Irish Medical Organisation in April 2019. Mr O Tuathail was president of a rival GP organization. Varadkar called Mr O Tuathail a friend, but not a close friend. He apologised in 2020 for his "errors of judgment". He also said to the Dail (Irish parliament), that he did not do anything illegal, corrupt, dishonest, or selfish in his actions. The Director of Public Prosecutions in Ireland (DPP), decided that Mr Varadkar and no other person would face charges. On Wednesday, Varadkar stated that he had always maintained the false allegations against him. "I am happy with the result of this thorough investigation."
