British Parliament suspends Indian deputy Keith Vaz for 6 months

LONDON: The Parliament of the United Kingdom suspended on Thursday one of the parliamentarians of Indian origin with more years of service Keith Vaz for six months after it was discovered that he had expressed his willingness to buy cocaine for men.

The parliamentarians approved the suspension after the Parliament Standards Committee concluded in their report that the 62-year-old Goan Labor Party The deputy of Leicester East had ignored the law when he expressed his willingness to buy cocaine for prostitutes.

In a report written earlier this week, the Commons control agency said there was convincing evidence that Vaz was evasive or useless during an investigation into his conduct.

The Labor Party said it accepted the suspension recommendation, describing it as a "sad day for us."
