Video/ Boris Johnson's justification for why 5,000 messages on his phone are missing
Although more than 6 months have passed, there is still no record of the 5,000 missing WhatsApp messages from the phone of former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Johnson before the Judge denied deleting the messages. He said the messages may have been deleted for technical reasons he could not explain, from the app crashing, adding that he did not delete the messages.

As reported in the Guardian in October, no WhatsApp messages from January 31, 2020 to June 7 of that year, covering the arrival of the virus and the period of the pandemic, could be accessed on Johnson's phone.
Johnson, who was prime minister between 2019 and 2022, stopped using the iPhone in question in May 2021 on security advice after it emerged his phone number had been accessible online for at least 15 years.
