To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether the Government has investigated how Andargachew Tsege's itinerary was shared with the Ethiopian authorities in advance of his kidnap from an airport in a third country.
Mr Tsege was detained in Yemen and taken to Ethiopia in June 2014. Following Foreign and Commonwealth Office inquiries the Ethiopian and Yemeni authorities have both stated that they have a bilateral treaty that permited Mr Tsege’s extradition to Ethiopia. The UK Government continues to take Mr Tsege’s case extremely seriously and is working to ensure his welfare and legal access. The Ethiopian government are in no doubt about the importance we place on Mr Tsege’s case: the Foreign and Commonwealth Office continues to raise this at the highest levels.
