VAZS BEARD , WHAT DOES SHE KNOW

From ‘favour-for-a-favour’ corruption scandals, accusations of a
double life, and ‘sex with rent boys’: How the VERY loyal wife of Keith
Vaz MP is standing by his side yet AGAIN 

  • Maria Fernandes married Vaz in 1993 and appears to be standing by him
  • Couple believed to be living together despite allegations of rent boy sex
  • Mr Vaz accused of paying men for sex in a flat 10 minute walk from home
  • His loyal wife is no stranger to scandals engulfing her husband of 23 years
Keith Vaz’s loyal wife appears to be standing by her under-fire husband despite his alleged sex with rent boys.
Maria Fernandes, his wife of 23 years, is still believed to be sharing the family home with the Labour MP, who may have been living a double life sleeping with men.
Ms
Fernandes, who is a lawyer and mother of Mr Vaz’s two children Luke and
Anjali, is no stranger to scandals engulfing her husband – but appears
to be unerringly loyal.
The couple left their north London home together and got into a waiting taxi, which had already been loaded with suitcases.

Mr
Vaz’s reputation has been damaged after he was exposed for paying rent
boys for sex in his £390,000 flat just a ten minute walk down the
road. 
Mr
Vaz has apologised to his family for the ‘hurt and distress’ he caused
them after he was allegedly filmed meeting two rent boys at his flat
where he pretended to be a washing machine salesman called ‘Jim’.
But Maria Fernandes is no stranger to scandals engulfing her husband.
In
nearly a quarter century of marriage, the immigration lawyer has stood
by him during a series of controversies – one of which landed her in
trouble as well.
In
2001, the Commons standards watchdog cleared her husband, a former
Europe minister, of failing to register £3,000 paid to her law firm by
the ultra-wealthy Hinduja brothers.
However, the standards commissioner, Elizabeth Filkin, said he colluded with his wife to conceal the payments.
In her report, Mrs Filkin said the money had been given to his wife for legal advice on immigration issues.
The
commissioner concluded that Mr Vaz gained no direct personal benefit,
and did not under Commons rules have to disclose the payments to his
wife. But she criticised Mr Vaz for his secrecy.

Miss
Fernandes, born in Kenya of Goan descent, married Mr Vaz in Westminster
Cathedral in 1993. The couple have two children, a son born in 1995 and
daughter born in 1997.
In
2010 Miss Fernandes faced difficult questions after bombshell evidence
emerged of Mr Vaz’s ‘favour-for-a-favour’ relationship with a corrupt
lawyer.
A
Daily Mail investigation found that Shahrokh Mireskandari treated her
and their young daughter to a weekend jolly in Rome – just weeks before
Mr Vaz intervened in a potentially ruinous court case on behalf of the
solicitor, a convicted conman with bogus qualifications.
Mr
Mireskandari even flew his female butler to the Italian capital to
babysit Mr Vaz’s daughter as he, Miss Fernandes, and others in the small
party shopped in designer boutiques and dined in top restaurants.
Mr Vaz issued a bizarre statement in which he did not deny his wife and daughter had gone to Rome with Mr Mireskandari.
Mr Mireskandari was later struck off by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and had his firm closed down.

Keith
Vaz is believed to still live at home with his family with neighbours
in the block of flats at the centre of the row saying they have not seen
him there. 
Payal
Radia, 24, who moved into her neighbouring flat in June, told
MailOnline: ‘I haven’t seen Keith Vaz or heard he had a flat here. (His)
has probably been one of least active of the flats.
She added: ‘I am quite shocked if this was happening in the building, it does make me feel uncomfortable.
‘I think it is his choice if he sees prostitutes but it’s wrong if he hid it from a wife and family.
‘He
definitely shouldn’t be involved in a committee that decides laws on
prostitutes and drugs if he does this in his personal life.
‘I am not altogether surprised as politicians often end up doing this kind of thing.’
