Starmer asks PM to request India release Jagtar Singh Johal

The Guardian reports on Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer asking Boris Johnson to intervene in the case of Jagtar Singh Johal, a Scottish man arbitrarily detained in India, and request his release.

Dan Dolan’s, Reprieve’s Director of Advocacy, said: “Jagtar was abducted on Boris Johnson’s watch at the Foreign Office. So he has known about this case for almost five years. He’s not the only UK Foreign Secretary to fail Jagtar, but as Prime Minister he could be the one to bring him home.”
