Dear Mr Cash,
I am enclosing the letter I have sent to Bill Millar, the Governer of La Moye Prison in Jersey.
I am requesting you as my MP to sign the EDM Number 1033, tabled by John Hemming MP
That this House is shocked at the decision of the Jersey Courts to imprison erstwhile Senator Stuart Syvret for 10 weeks following his being found guilty of data protection offences; notes that his offence was to criticise the Jersey establishment for its failures to enforce the rule of law; believes that this sanction is an attempt to frighten others away from raising concerns about the failings of the justice system in Jersey; and calls for the Government urgently to raise concerns about this political persecution with the authorities in Jersey.
