Damian Green, deputy of Theresa May, British prime minister, has resigned.
Green stepped down after he was indicted for breaching ministerial code.
He was found to have made “inaccurate and misleading” statements on what he knew about pornography found on a computer in his office in 2008.
Green had been under investigation regarding allegations of inappropriate conduct.
In his letter, he apologised for his action and accepted that the statements he made about pornography investigation fell short of expectation.
“I apologise that my statements were misleading on this point,” he said.
May has accepted his resignation, wishing him well in his future endeavours.
“It is with deep regret, and enduring gratitude for the contribution you have made over many years, that I asked you to resign from the government and have accepted your resignation,” she wrote in a letter addressed to Green.
