Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Ms Eileen Eggington QPM
I wish to make the following formal complaint concerning
Keith Vaz MP:
From 1995/6 until at least May 2000, Keith and
Maria Vaz employed an illegal immigrant from Bangladesh as a nanny
for their two young children * * * and * * *. Her identity and
the circumstances of her employment are set out in the attached
four-page document, which I prepared following conversations with
Mrs Rita Gresty, former personal assistant to Maria Vaz.
Mrs Gresty has been receiving psychiatric care as
an in-patient since July 2000. * * * She remains in a seriously
depressed stated. However, she has given the attached information
in the knowledge and understanding that it will be passed to the
appropriate authorities for investigation. I am confident that
Mrs Gresty is an excellent witness.
I have also passed the attached document to Andrew
Pearce, Head of Security and Anti-Corruption Section, at the Home
Office Nationality Division.
