Cherie Blair, wife of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was allegedly involved in a large scale financial misdeed and her murky financial links with the corrupt dictator of a tax haven with an appalling record on human rights can be revealed today.
A law firm founded by Tony Blair’s wife, who trumpets her human rights work, earned more than £2,000 a day representing Abdulla Yameen, the autocratic president of the Maldives.
In a highly irregular move, the firm was paid more than £200,000 of its fee by a suspected conman and terrorist now wanted by Interpol.
As a result, Mrs Blair’s company, Omnia Strategy, could become the subject of an anti-corruption investigation by the Serious Fraud Office and US government.
Mr Yameen has jailed more than 1,700 opposition activists, and the leaders of three rival political parties, staging show trials dubbed a ‘travesty of justice’ by Amnesty
