Boris Johnson Refuses to Answer MPs on Brit Held in Ethiopia

Reprieve

The Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, has today refused to answer questions in the House of Commons about the case of Andargachew ‘Andy’ Tsege, a British father of three who is held on Ethiopia’s death row.

Mr Johnson and other Foreign Office ministers today faced several oral questions from MPs about why their department has not requested the return of Mr Tsege. Mr Tsege was kidnapped at an airport in June 2014, and is now held in Ethiopia under a sentence of death imposed in absentia in 2009.
