British Prime Minister David Cameron has been urged to investigate why the Tory Party took over £420,000 from the telecoms group Lycamobile, which has close links to Sri Lanka's controversial President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Labour MP Tom Blenkinsop told the Huffington Post UK: "The Prime Minister knows his party has received over £420k from a company closely associated with the Sri Lankan regime. He was obviously so concerned that his own MPs were recently prevented from visiting there.

"So in the interests of transparency I want to know if the Prime Minister is going to investigate why his party has received over £420k from this company so closely associated with the Sri Lankan government."

Telecoms giant Lycamobile has donated £426,292 to the Tories since 2011 and was "Gold Sponsors" of the Commonwealth Business Forum, which happened in the run up to the Commonwealth Heads Of Government Meeting (CHOGM) that took place last Friday.

    This people have become mad and trying to dictate terms everywhere like in ancient history. It is very bad for independence and peace to the entire world. Hope God will show him one day how a human being has to behave in the interest other human beings in the world. This also related to other nations and organizations too who are covering stronger nations things and dictating terms to other poor nations.

    Well, well. Sounds something fishy. As usual a statement to the press will soon be issued from our side. It will be well glossed to cover the dirt.
