Tory MP paid thousands a month by Saudi governments but why?

Atta-Ur-Rehman Chishti(born 4 October 1978) is a British Conservative politician who was elected MP for Gillingham and Rainham in the 2010 general election. He is the former Parliamentary Private Secretary to Jeremy Wright, the Attorney General for England and Wales.
In March 2016, Chishti became an adviser to the King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies, a role for which he was paid £200 an hour. The King Faisal Centre is a Saudi Arabian think-tank, named after the Saudi King Faisal. In recent years the organisation has aimed to have more of an international presence and to "affect policy based on public research".The Liberal Democrats criticised him for advancing Saudi Arabia's interests through making speeches in Parliament while at the same time being on the pay-roll of a Saudi think-tank. The parliamentary standards commissioner said in June 2016 that it would not investigate the complaint made by the Liberal Democrat MP.
