Lying Peterborough MP Fiona Onasanya Sent to Prison for Three Months

Fiona Onasanya, the former Labour MP for Peterborough, has been sentenced to three months imprisonment for perverting the course of justice. Onasanya, who is appealing the case, will now face a recall petition to unseat her should her appeal fail.

Justice Stuart-Smith, giving Onasanya the lowest possible sentence for the crime, said:

“You have not simply let yourself down, you have let down those who look to you for inspiration, your party, your profession and Parliament.”
