Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan has written to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards asking her to investigate allegations against DUP MP Ian Paisley journey concerning a lavish holiday in the Maldives.

The North Antrim MLA said ;

“Serious questions are raised by the latest allegations against DUP MP Ian Paisley concerning a lavish holiday to the Maldives, who paid for it and any possible connections to the government of the Maldives.

“The public is entitled to know who paid for this holiday and why Ian Paisley had not registered the trip with the authorities at Westminster.

“Questions also arise about Ian Paisley’s relationship with the government of the Maldives, which had been criticised by the UN over allegations of human rights abuses.

“All of this comes on the heels of Ian Paisley’s suspension from the British House of Commons following his failure to declare lavish family holidays in Sri Lanka.

“I have now written to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, Kathyrn Stone, to ask her to investigate these allegations.

“Support for human rights abusing regimes will come as no surprise but the electorate of North Antrim are entitled to answers to the serious questions raised by these allegations.”
