Lavery calls for Final Push to get Chennai Six back home

I am totally thrilled with the news this morning that Nick Dunn and the rest of the Chennai Six are to be released after being acquitted in India.

The nightmare which Nick's family and friends have endured, along with the rest of these men, is finally coming to an end.

My focus now is ensuring that Nick and the rest of the men are returned home to Britsh soil as soon as possible, without delay.

I have written to the Foreign Secretary this morning calling for all possible resources to be allocated to getting the men home. Returning Nick to Ashington as soon as he is released must be our number one priority.

The work isn't over yet, but this news has ensured that Christmas 2017 will be a very special one for these families, who have been to hell and back over the past 4 years.
