Labour responds to Tory donor’s corruption scandal

Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour’s Party Chair, commenting on the news a prominent Conservative Party donor has been involved in a major corruption scandal, said:

“It’s really concerning that the Conservatives have accepted hundreds of thousands of pounds from a man who appears to be closely linked to one of Europe’s biggest corruption scandals.

“This is not the first time that Mohamed Amersi has been embroiled in controversy. The Conservatives should return the money he donated to them and come clean about who else is getting exclusive access to the Prime Minister and the Chancellor in return for cash.

“There can’t be one rule for senior Conservatives and their chums and another rule for everyone else.”
