Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from Mr Jaffer A Kapasi OBE DL MKD

  I refer to your letter of 14 March 2000 and respond as follows to each of the points in the order raised.

  1.  No payment was made to Mr Vaz in 1991-92 either personally or by my business Kapasi & Co in return for any assistance with regard to planning permission for a mosque.

  2.  I have not made payments donations or provided other support to Mr Vaz as a Member of Parliament. I have however, made a very small donation of £52.00 in 1995-96 to a charity called Sahara Trust of which Mr Vaz is a trustee.

  3.  I am not aware of any other person(s) who have made payments, donations or provided support to Mr Vaz.

  4.  I have no other information with regards to the names of people who may be able to assist with your inquiries.

  5.  No.

  I have tried to be as helpful as I can and trust that my responses will assist you with your inquiries.
