Following the announcement of a verdict in the Chennai Six case, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said:
Since I became Foreign Secretary, this case has been a top priority for everybody at the Foreign Office and today’s verdict is fantastic news.
The FCO has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to reunite these men with their families. The importance the UK government places on their case cannot be overstated.
The men, their families and their supporters, who have campaigned unrelentingly, must be overjoyed. I share their delight and I hope they can return home as soon as possible.
