Werritty's spooky business

Issue No. 2274

Adam Werritty gets cash to travel the world from a number of donors. Liam Fox has had a particular interest in Sri Lanka. He has been involved with the Sri Lankan Development Fund, which was wound up in 1999.

The fund was registered at 30 George Square, Marylebone.

But so is a rather spooky company called G3 Good Governance.

Its chair is Chester Crocker, who was Ronald Reagan’s deputy secretary of state with responsibility for Africa.

Crocker is also connected to C5 Capital, which employs Lt General Sir Graham Lamb who was former director of UK Special Forces.

G3 also funds a charitable organisation, Universal Exports Foundation, run by the daughter of a former MI6 Middle East director.

It is staffed by various former spies, and passed money on to Werrity via another company, Pargav Ltd.

MI6 called in Adam Werritty, Liam Fox’s close friend and self-styled adviser, after his visits to Israel and meetings with Iranians.

Questions about whether Fox was running in his own direction with foreign policy with all his think tanks are worthwhile.

But quite who he was running for is also worth asking.
