Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Ms Eileen Eggington QPM
I have received information which is relevant to
your enquiry concerning Keith Vaz MP and his connection with the
Hinduja family. The information I have suggests that Mr Vaz and,
in particular his wife, Mrs Maria Fernandes Vaz, have been unduly
influenced by the wealth of the Hindujas. Maria has been used
by the Hindujas to receive highly preferential treatment in obtaining
British passports and visas.
Attached is a seven page statement which I took from
Mrs Rita Gresty, who worked for Maria as PA for almost two years
from August 1998 to May 2000.
I ask that you investigate the above allegation.
