VIDEO ON popularized by Philip under "NOMFUP" bounces on the British media
The Italian blogger who "nails"
Minister of Defence
Published a video-evidence against Liam Fox: international meetings with the friend who pretends advisor
MILAN - Even an Italian blogger worsens the position of Liam Fox, the British Defence Minister who risks his chair due to a young friend became too cumbersome. Starting with a scoop of the Guardian last August, the Conservative leader has come under investigation, accused of repeatedly allowed the former roommate and best man Werritty Adam, 34, to enter the headquarters of the Defense - 14 visits in 16 months, according to the opposition - and leaving him to participate in international meetings where it appeared as "counselor" without having any official position. Episodes on which Fox will report on Monday in Parliament, to clarify if by his conduct may have compromised national security and violated the code of conduct required of a minister.
Just one of the meetings at the center of the investigation - in London, in December 2010, the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa - a video was broadcast by a local TV network and was discovered in the Roman journalist Filippo Sensi, curator of 'irony of communication and political Nomfup blog (short for Not my f *** ing problem). The film (see images above) shows the presence at the summit - but denied by the minister - Werritty friend and this is over as evidence on the first page of the Observer, the Sunday of the same group of the British Guardian.
THE ITALIAN BLOGGER - "The video was given by the Italian blogger Nomfup Observer - the authors wrote in the British newspaper -. Three different sources have seen and believe that Werritty will appear. " The Italian blog also publishes another movie of a meeting with President of Sri Lanka, which would participate again the friend of Fox, a video this time in 2009, when the Conservative leader was not a minister. "We found the images of sieve and doing a job search on the web, then the British media have contacted us to publish them - explains Filippo Sensi on the phone with Courier (listen to audio interview). "No spying or secret, we found two videos on YouTube - adds -. It was enough just to put things together. And maybe these movies will now contribute more to see if it is true or not what the minister says. "
DUBAI - But there are only videos to nail it. The British media also reveal new details about the relationship with Fox Werritty. Among them, another international meeting where the friend Adam has participated in: Dubai, last June, with the businessman Harvey Boulter. The minister defended himself by saying that the encounter occurred by chance. I deny, however, a series of emails published by the Guardian, which shows that the appointment was to set their own Werritty. It is a succinct statement of the same Boulter: "It was planned from April. A meeting with Minister of Defense does not happen by accident. "

IN BALANCE - After the new revelations, must immediately attack the opposition: "It is not just a matter of national security and access to highly sensitive information - the BBC says Harriet Harman, Labour's number two -. It is also a question of honesty. " Even Prime Minister David Cameron formally confirms the confidence to Fox - since setting up his minister in May 2010 - but at the same time calls for the results of the first to arrive on his desk on Monday morning. So much so that on the evening of Sunday is forced to act the same as Fox. With a message on TV to apologize, to ensure that this was not through any "wrongdoing" and that Werritty not sent any information. But also to ensure that you do not resign: "It was a mistake to let that confuse my professional responsibilities and my personal loyalty to a friend" but "from this experience, I learned my lesson."
