Andrew Mitchell MP has urged the Government to help rescue Andy Tsege, a British father from Islington, held on death row by Ethiopian authorities for more than three years.
In his article, Mr Mitchell wrote:
“Inside the front cover of my passport, I am always reassured to read that the UK Government offers me “such assistance and protection as may be necessary” when I leave British shores. But I am reminded by one case in particular that protection is not always guaranteed… we have a duty to speak out. It is time for our Government to negotiate Andy’s return to his family.”
