Rishi Sunak, who became the new British Prime Minister in October, said he did not know anything about the work in Russia of the IT company Infosys, which was founded by his father-in-law. According to the head of the British government, he has nothing to do with this company. He stated this on the air of the British TV channel, writes Kommersant on Sunday, November 6th.
Sunak stressed that Infosys is the business of its leaders. “We have imposed significant sanctions, and all the companies we are responsible for are complying with them as they should, sending a very clear response to aggression,” said Rishi Sunak.
Recently The Guardian newspaper reportedthat the IT company Infosys, founded by the father of the wife of the Prime Minister of Great Britain, continues to work in Russia, despite promises to leave the country. According to the publication, the company retained an office with employees in Moscow and pays subcontractors to provide IT services for a global client.
About what Rishi Sunak might be associated with the company his father-in-law, who works in Russia, became aware in July when the politician nominated himself as a candidate for the post of British Prime Minister. Then it was assumed that the family business could become an obstacle to obtaining such a position.
The founder of Infosys is one of the richest businessmen in India, Nagawara Ramarao Narayana Murthy. His daughter Akshata Murthy is married to Rishi Sunak. She owns about 1% of the shares of an IT company.
