Boris Johnson Must Raise Case of Mentally Ill Pakistani Facing Execution

Reprieve

The Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, has been urged to intervene in the case of a severely mentally ill man who faces imminent execution in Pakistan, amid concerns over UK policing assistance to the country.

Imdad Ali is a former electrician from Pakistan who is severely mentally ill, and who was sentenced to death over a shooting. He has been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, and a 2013 medical report declared him “insane.”
