How Sri Lanka 'engaged' with British MPs - Telegraph

The Telegraph examined how Sri Lanka 'engaged' with certain British MPs earlier this year, by looking at a debate earlier this year regarding Sri Lanka's human rights situation at the British Houses of Parliament.

The short video was released as the British government announced that MPs are now banned from accepting all expenses paid trips to Sri Lanka.

The video showed that the following MPs who spoke during the debate had accepted all expenses paid trips to Sri Lanka.

James Wharton - two trips to Sri Lanka worth £6,400 paid for by the Sri Lankan government
