LONDON — Scotland Yard is to take the first steps toward a criminal investigation against member of Parliament George Galloway, who faces an 18-day suspension from the House of Commons over his financial links to Saddam Hussein's regime.
Mr. Mawer said there was no evidence that Mr. Galloway had benefited personally from the program or that any funds had entered his personal bank account.
Mr. Mawer said: "Mr. Galloway has consistently denied, prevaricated and fudged in relation to the now undeniable evidence that the Mariam Appeal, and he indirectly through it, received money derived, via the oil for food program, from the Iraqi regime."
