The High Court has ruled that emails and WhatsApp messages of former British Health Secretary Matt Hancock can be searched, in a court action brought by the Good Law Project group against the Department of Health and Social Care over the allegedly unlawful awarding of multi-million-pound Covid testing contracts.
The case revolves around three Covid-19 antibody test contracts, worth more than £80 million, that were awarded to Abingdon Health. The contracts were allegedly given to the company in April, June, and August 2020, but were not properly published until October 2020.
The Good Law Project argued that the “The contracts were awarded directly, and secretly, without any advertisement or competition.”
