Urgent Question Contribution on Jagtar Singh Johal

Glad to back up my colleague Martin Docherty-Hughes MP in his relentless pursuit of proper treatment for his constituent Jagtar Singh Johal, which many East Ren residents have corresponded with me about. Jagtar was snatched from the street in India, and has been in arbitrary detention, subject to torture and kept from his home and family for five years.

East Ren residents who have been in touch with me are very concerned to ensure that he is released, and that proper efforts are being made by the UK Government to secure his return home to his family. They also want to be confident of fair treatment - from the UK Government too - when they travel overseas. The new PM must act to resolve this dreadful situation which has gone on for far too long.
