Updates

In September Amnesty Headquarters is launching the `I welcome` campaign which could prove to be controversial. Therefore, we hope to set up a stall asking `What IS a refugee?’ Not a terrorist. Not an economic migrant. This country has a record of welcoming migrants going back over centuries and I remember efforts made after W.W.2.

We wrote to Caroline Nokes wishing her well for her next years in Parliament, bringing to her attention the plight of Nazanin Zgghani Ratcliffe and Kamal Foroughi, both British Nationals, unjustly imprisoned, inviting her involvement.

We also wrote to the new Moroccan Ambassador and the Moroccan Authorities concerning our prisoner currently in solitary confinement for 7 months, ill, without suitable medical care and sleeping on a slab without covers. He is serving 7 years.
