I remain deeply concerned by the continued detention of British national Andargachew Tsege in Ethiopia and about his welfare. The Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs, my Rt Hon friend, the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Philip Hammond MP) has not raised the case of Mr Andargachew with NATO partners. There is regular Article 8 dialogue between the EU and Ethiopia and Mr Andargachew’s case has been raised in the context of these dialogues, most recently on 28 April 2015.
