Andrew Mitchell MP has personally written to the Home Secretary to urge HM Government to challenge the Kremlin's repeated attempts to order the arrest of Bill Browder, a campaigner against Russian human rights abuses, through Interpol.

In his letter, Mr Mitchell wrote: “I hope you feel as Home Secretary that it is right and proper that we ensure that Mr Browder is protected from what looks like a clear and egregious breach of his human rights.”
