London to probe Warsi's Pakistan visit
LONDON: British Prime Minister David Cameron ordered an inquiry Monday into whether the head of his Conservative party broke rules by taking a business partner on an official visit to Pakistan.
Sayeeda Warsi, the co-chairman of the centre-right party and a cabinet minister without portfolio, apologised for failing to disclose that Abid Hussain and she were both shareholders in a food company before the 2010 visit.
"I accept that I should have made officials aware of the business relationship between Mr Hussain and myself, and for this I am sorry," she wrote in a letter to Cameron.
"I regret that this failure may have caused embarrassment to the government." (...)
