My constituent Robert Urwin was detained in the Ukraine for a year over a bounced cheque he didn’t write. Mr Urwin was cleared of all charges but was unable to return home due to an Interpol Red Notice that remained in place.- Hi I would double check some of this as I ma not sure he was detained the whole time- check the timeline I sent as the family are obv very sensitive about getting this right
I raised his case in the Chamber on two separate occasions in October and appeared on BBC Look North to put pressure on the Government to act and bring him home to his family. You can see both videos here.
I was absolutely delighted when I found out Mr Urwin had finally returned home to his family on 9 December 2019, just in time for Christmas.
