The mastermind believed to leak a secret memo of former British ambassador to the United States (US) to spark a diplomatic tension with the country has been identified, the Sunday Times newspaper said.

Last Sunday, Mail on Sunday revealed a memo from Kim Darroch, among others, describing Donald Trump’s administration as ‘inadequate’ and ‘not functioning properly’ as it prompted the US president’s anger.

Darroch also announced his resignation as soon as the memo was revealed.

The Sunday Times citing a source who refused to be named said a mastermind had been identified thus denying the theory that it was a foreign hacker.

According to The Mail, Darroch’s memo to the British government in May 2018 explained that Trump’s withdrawal from Iran’s nuclear agreements with the big powers was on ‘personality because’ it was agreed upon by the previous leader, Barrack Obama.

Darroch also described the Trump administration as ‘based on diplomatic vandalism’, the newspaper said.

Britain’s senior anti-terror police officer warned the media not to release any leaked documents as it could violate the Official Secrets Act.

The warning was criticized by media practitioners and politicians including foreign minister Jeremy Hunt and former London mayor, Boris Johnson, who competed to replace Prime Minister Theresa May.
