Mr Mohammed El Sharkawi

Volume 508: debated on Wednesday 7 April 2010

The Petition of the people of Croydon,

Declares that Mohammed El Sharkawi has been imprisoned in Eygpt without trial for 15 years despite sixteen court orders issued supporting his release, and the UN Working Group on Arbitary Detention deeming his incarceration unlawful.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to hold talks with the Egyptian administration to ensure Mr. Mohammed El Sharkawi is at last brought to a fair and just trial.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Mr. Andrew Pelling .]
