End Unlawful Detention In the news

Rishi Sunak should call on Modi to release Jagtar Singh Johal immediately, say campaigners

The Independent reports on calls by campaigners for Rishi Sunak to not only raise Jagtar Singh Johal’s case with Narendra Modi during their meeting at the G20 summit, but press the Indian prime minister to release him immediately.

Reprieve said the UK government should reveal what Modi’s response was to Sunak’s intervention: “The government often says ministers have raised the case a hundred times, as if that makes their failure to seek the release of an arbitrarily detained British national any less shameful,” Reprieve said on X.

“What did Rushi Sunak say to Narenda Modi about the case and how did he respond? Without answers to these questions, the prime minister’s talk is meaningless.”
