Denis MacShane working hard for Rotherham?

Nice to see Denis is working hard on Rotherham’s behalf.

Quite what the link to Rotherham is in his latest preoccupation is beyond me, read on and weep.

“Mr MacShane: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what funds have been provided to Maxim Bakiyev following his application for asylum in the UK. [7039]

Damian Green: It is not Home Office policy to comment on individual cases.”

Hansard Citation: HC Deb, 13 July 2010, c630W

And

“Mr MacShane: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what the status is of Maxim Bakiyev under UK law; [6652]

(2) what discussions she had with the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs on the granting of leave to remain in the UK to Maxim Bakiyev. [6653]

Damian Green: It is not Home Office policy to comment on individual cases.”

Hansard Citation: HC Deb, 13 July 2010, c634W

Just who is Maksim Bakiyev?

According to Wikipedia he has applied for asylum in Britain. He however appears to be a thoroughly unpleasant character indeed!

Wanted by Interpol for embezzlement of $35millon and abuse of power and is suspected of funding the 2010 inter-ethnic riots in south Kyrgyzstan with $10 million from his own pocket!

Currently awaiting possible extradition to Kyrgyzstan, he does however have permission to stay pending consideration of request for asylum.

What is MacShane’s interest here? What has this got to do with us?

Who does he really work for? It certainly doesn’t look like us! We should be told!
