MeeksWASHINGTON, D.C. - The United States House of Representatives Ethics Committee has found that a New York congressman’s failure to disclose a $40,000 “loan” from an indicted prominent Guyanese businessman was “inadvertent”.

The Ethics Committee also declined to rule on whether the loan to Congressman Gregory Meeks from Ed Ahmad was really a gift.

In its report, the committee quoted Steven Kartagener, a lawyer for Ahmad, as saying there was “no fixed interest rate” and no written document of the loan’s terms.

“I am pleased with the Ethics Committee’s decision, and I am glad that this matter is now closed,” said Meeks, who represents Queens, New York in the U.S. Congress.
