Labour MP Keith Vaz, a frequent critic of video games, finds himself the focus of a lengthy expose in the Daily Mail.
As GamePolitics reported last September, Vaz attempted to intervene in a court case on behalf of a political donor, Shahrokh ‘Sean’ Mireskandari.
Accordinging to yesterday’s newspaper report, Mireskandari also lavished Vaz and his family with gifts. A former colleague of Mireskandari’s told the Mail:
Vaz was frequently in Sean’s office and was always after freebies. He loved the high life; football, concerts, black-tie dinners. It was really undignified for such a senior politician.
While the allegations concerning Vaz’s intervention into his friend’s court case are not new, the Daily Mail has assemled a staggering amount of detail concerning the relationship between Vaz and Mireskandari.
