A large number of constituents wrote to me in 2016 regarding the case of Andargachew Tsege, a British National, who has been detained for over four years on death row in Ethiopia. I am very pleased that Mr Tsege has now been pardoned and will be soon home in London with his family.
Mr Tsege was detained In Ethiopia without judicial process or access to a Lawyer. Many people from the political and legal world have tirelessly pressed the Government on Mr Tsege’s case and have called on both the Prime Minister Theresa May and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, to intervene. I welcome his pardon and imminent release and hope that he will be brought home soon, to be reunited with wife and three children as soon as possible.
