    So the ELectoral Commission is to look into Labour complaints only to find that Companies House records show that it is doing business in the UK. Surely the EC has the small matter of 5th Avenue still to consider. They said in October 2006 that they would wait until after the the police had concluded their investigations. Here we are 2 court cases later, boith have which have concluded that there was no business in 5th Avenue Partners.
