In a letter to Canada's Minister Of Foreign Affairs, Jagmeet issued a strong show of support for the illegal prisoners currently being held beyond their sentences in India.
Last week, Jagmeet was pleased to attend an event in Brampton in support of the release of prisoners being held beyond their sentences in India. Democratic nations depend upon the rule of law to ensure citizens have recourse to equal and fair treatment. As Canadians, it is our moral responsibility to raise concerns whenever and wherever human rights violations occur. At the request of his constituents, Jagmeet has asked the Minister of Foreign Affairs to raise the issue with the Government of India, and release the prisoners who are being held despite the completion of their sentence.
It is our hope that the request of my constituents receives a favorable response from Minister Baird. Please see the letter below:
