Adam Werritty attends meeting with Sri Lankan president - video

Footage shows Liam Fox's former flatmate meeting President Mahinda Rajapaksa with defence secretary in 2010

http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/video/2011/oct/08/adam-werritty-meeting-sri-lankan

Defence secretary Liam Fox's future hangs in the balance as the Observer reveals film and email evidence that appears to contradict prior claims about his friend Adam Werritty's involvement in meetings with overseas dignitaries and businessmen.

The film shows that Fox's former flatmate, who was also best man at his wedding, met the president of Sri Lanka with Fox for a meeting in a London hotel last year, despite having no role in government.

The defence secretary has strenuously denied that 34-year-old Werritty had been present at any official meetings with foreign dignitaries overseas and his department refused to comment on Saturday when questioned about this meeting. However, the video and photographs obtained by this newspaper appear to show Werritty shaking hands with President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Fox's troubles deepened further on Saturday when the defence secretary said that a meeting in Dubai in June this year with a businessman, also attended by Werritty, only happened as a result of a chance meeting there in a restaurant.

Emails between Werritty and the businessman, Harvey Boulter, obtained by the Guardian in August, appear to contradict Fox's account. They appear to indicate that Fox's friend had been trying to fix up such a meeting since April. Boulter said: "The fact that a meeting was going to happen was prearranged in April. A meeting with the Ministry of Defence doesn't happen by chance."

The two sets of revelations came as Downing Street stepped into a row that was threatening to spiral out of control. No 10 ordered the initial findings of an MoD inquiry into Werritty's role as a self-styled adviser to Fox to be presented to David Cameron on Monday. The inquiry had been due to last another two weeks. Amid signs that support for Fox was ebbing away, No 10's line was that it was still supportive of him. But the fact that it effectively ordered the inquiry to be speeded up shows its desperation to draw a line under the episode.

One source at the heart of government said: "The prime minister is remaining supportive of Liam while the facts are established but we will see what happens on Monday."

Sri Lankan TV news footage and press photographs appear to show that Werritty was part of Fox's delegation at the meeting with Rajapaksa, who has been accused of war crimes during the country's civil war. The footage apparently shows Werritty shaking hands and bowing to Rajapaksa.

Werritty is present as Fox discusses investment in the country, and plans to integrate Tamil political parties willing to participate within the government, according to Sri Lankan TV footage. The footage was handed to the Observer by Italian blogger Nomfup. Three separate sources have seen the footage and confirmed that they believe Werritty appears in the footage.

News of the meeting at the Dorchester hotel in early December will raise fresh concerns about whether Fox has misled MPs and the public about Werritty's role at the heart of government. The storm engulfing Fox has grown since the Guardian first revealed in August the extent of Werritty's closeness to Fox, and that he had described himself as an adviser to the secretary of state on business cards, although he is not a government employee. Fox will come under intense pressure when he appears at defence questions in the Commons on Monday. On Saturday night the shadow defence secretary, Jim Murphy, demanded that Fox make a statement to the House.

"This is a self-inflicted political crisis and it seems to run and run with fresh allegations every day," Murphy said. Sources have also told this newspaper that the government investigation into Werritty's role will examine every overseas trip Fox has taken, both as secretary of state and before as the shadow minister, to discover if he was accompanied by Werritty and if he met foreign leaders.

The MoD said the Sri Lanka meeting was a "private engagement". The Observer understands that Fox is also under scrutiny over other official visits abroad, including the annual trip to the International Institute of Strategic Studies in Singapore. He gave a speech at the IISS in early June, and it is believed he met Werritty during the short stay.

Whitehall sources said that the MoD appears to be "99% sure" it has never paid for any of Werritty's flights or accommodation, but officials are trying to establish if there was any potential blurring of the lines that may have compromised Fox's position.

Fox's friendship with Werritty is also likely to trigger questions over his involvement in a company called UK Health Group. Records reveal that in 2007 Fox owned shares in the company, as did Werritty. But there is no mention of this shareholding in Fox's register of members' interests, an apparent breach of parliament's strict rules.

The Guardian has revealed Werritty:

• Involved Fox in discussions with Boulter that have left Fox facing the prospect of being called to give evidence in a "blackmail" trial in the US.

• Was present at a discussion about the possibility of providing British security-sensitive technology to Libyan rebels.

• Has visited Fox at the MoD's Whitehall offices 14 times in a little over a year and hands out business cards that say he is "an adviser to the Rt Hon Dr Fox MP".

• Ran a controversial charity from inside Fox's office in the houses of parliament.

• Collected £90,000 in salary from the Atlantic Bridge charity, which is linked to major US business lobby groups.

• Has previously been present when Fox met Rajapaksa and other senior Sri Lanka ministers.

• Was an investor in the same health consultancy company as Fox.

The December meeting at the Dorchester hotel took place when Fox had been defence secretary for six months. After the Guardian revealed that Werritty brokered a crucial legal meeting in Dubai, a spokesman for Fox said: "Mr Werritty is not an employee and has, therefore, not travelled with me on any official overseas visits."

The MoD refused to comment on the meeting. Werritty did not respond to requests for comment.

Speaking about the Dubai meeting during a visit to Libya on Saturday which has been overshadowed by the controversy over his links to Werritty, Fox said he had been on his "way home" from Afghanistan and made the stopover to switch to a civilian aircraft.

Liam Fox used expenses to pay his best man Adam Werritty

Liam Fox, the Defence Secretary, put a close friend with “defence-related business interests” on the public payroll, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

Adam Werritty, whose relationship with Dr Fox threatens the minister’s career, was paid with taxpayers’ money as a parliamentary researcher.

This newspaper has also learnt that Mr Werritty, who holds no official government role, acted as Dr Fox’s personal envoy to Sri Lanka, arranging his meetings with senior ministers.

The latest disclosures come after Dr Fox issued a humiliating public apology over his relationship with Mr Werritty and David Cameron put his own reputation on the line by backing the Defence Secretary.

Dr Fox, 50, has found himself at the eye of the political storm over his links with Mr Werritty, 34, his former flatmate and best man.

In an extraordinary public statement, Dr Fox admitted yesterday that the line between his public duties and private life had been “blurred”.

“Given Mr Werritty’s defence-related business interests, my frequent contacts with him may have given an impression of wrongdoing,” he said.

Days earlier, the minister had described questions about his conduct as “baseless” and “wild”.

Despite insisting that Mr Werritty has no official role at the Ministry of Defence, Dr Fox has admitted meeting his friend several times overseas while on government business.

On at least one of those trips,

Mr Werritty arranged for Dr Fox to meet privately with defence industry executives.

Previously, the minister was known to have met Mr Werritty in Dubai and Sri Lanka. The Daily Telegraph has also learnt that since Dr Fox took office, the two men have met in Singapore and Bahrain while the minister was on official business.

The encounters took place at high-level meetings of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, a think-tank that brings together politicians, diplomats, military chiefs and executives.

The Defence Secretary’s job is on the line over his close contact with Mr Werritty, a “business consultant” and former director of a security consultancy firm. Mr Cameron will today receive the interim findings of a Whitehall inquiry into Dr Fox’s conduct, carried out by the senior civil servant at the MoD and overseen by Sir Gus O’Donnell, the Cabinet Secretary.

The Prime Minister yesterday backed the Defence Secretary, who will face intensive questions in the Commons today. The two men spoke by telephone yesterday morning, with sources describing Mr Cameron’s approach as “very supportive”.

Despite a sometimes difficult personal relationship, No 10 insisted that Mr Cameron did not want to lose Dr Fox from his Cabinet. The minister stood against Mr Cameron for the Conservative Party leadership in 2005.

William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, and George Osborne, the Chancellor, are also said to have voiced support for Dr Fox.

Mr Werritty has labelled himself as an “adviser” to the Defence Secretary, something Dr Fox has described as “unacceptable”. Yet financial records seen by The Daily Telegraph show an economic relationship between the two friends.

The papers disclose that in 2005/06, Dr Fox’s Commons office budgeted for a £690 National Insurance payment relating to Mr Werritty’s employment.

The payment suggests that he had been employed by Dr Fox in the previous year. At the time, Mr Werritty was the director of a company called UK Health. Since Mr Werritty has never been issued with a House of Commons security pass, the payment will raise questions about what work he was doing for the MP’s office.

Dr Fox has already been referred to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards for allowing Mr Werritty to stay rent-free in his flat, which was funded by his expenses, in 2002/03.

Dr Fox has denied allowing Mr Werritty to play any role in government business, but it has also emerged that the younger man played a central part in arranging the minister’s contacts with members of the Sri Lankan government.

It was reported last week that Mr Werritty accompanied Dr Fox to meetings with Sri Lankan ministers in Colombo and London.

The Daily Telegraph can now disclose that he was in direct contact with Sri Lankan ministers on Dr Fox’s behalf in December last year.

The minister had planned a “private” trip to Colombo on Dec 20, which was vetoed by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. British diplomats believe Dr Fox’s close relationship with the Sri Lankan government undermines UK foreign policy.

It is understood that Mr Werritty had flown to Colombo several days before Dr Fox’s scheduled arrival in December.

When the FCO intervened, it was Mr Werritty, and not the British embassy, who told Sri Lankan ministers that the trip had been called off.

GL Peiris, the Sri Lankan foreign minister, is understood to have asked Mr Werritty to ensure that the trip was described as postponed instead of cancelled. The MoD later issued a statement saying Dr Fox’s visit had been “postponed”. He subsequently carried out the trip in July this year, when Mr Werritty was again in Sri Lanka.

Mr Werritty’s business interests remain unclear, but it is known that a London lobbying firm last year introduced him to Harvey Boulter of Porton Capital, a firm hoping to sell secure communications technology to the MoD.

Mr Werritty then arranged for Dr Fox to hold a private meeting in Dubai without civil servants present to take notes.

Mr Boulter has withdrawn some of his claims about the meeting, but Dr Fox still conceded that he was “wrong” to hold the discussion in private.

He denied any personal benefit, but admitted it had exposed the Government to the “suggestion of wrongdoing”.

Labour dismissed Dr Fox’s response as “inadequate” and called for a full independent investigation.

Kevan Jones, a shadow defence minister, said: “The Defence Secretary simply cannot have sensitive meetings behind the back of his officials.

“This is incredibly serious and this response is incredible.”

John Mann, the Labour backbencher who referred Dr Fox’s expenses claims to the Commons commissioner, repeated calls for the minister to quit.

But Mark Pritchard, secretary of the backbench Conservative 1922 Committee, said the Defence Secretary was in a solid position.

“From the backbenchers I have spoken with, on both the Left and Right of the party; the Defence Secretary still has a huge amount of support. His statement has added to that support,” he said.
