Rory Stewart MP comments on the release of Wigton constituent John Armstrong

“John has now finally flown out of India, following his almost four-year ordeal in India. I cannot overstate how pleased I am for John and his family, in particular his parents and sister Joanne Thomlinson, who have done so much to bring about this result, and whose courage and patience throughout has made a huge impression on me personally both when I flew to India to visit John and in our many meetings in Cumbria and parliament. I know that John will be spending the immediate period of time re-acclimatising to ‘normal’ life and will appreciate the respect of his privacy from the media and others. And I look forward to seeing John back home in Wigton very soon. I wish everyone who has been affected by the Chennai 6 case a peaceful holiday period together with their families.”
