To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether he discussed the extradition proceedings of Raymond Varley on his recent trip to India; and if he will continue to monitor the case.
21 July 2014
The Home Secretary has not made any recent trips to India. Raymond Varley’s
discharge was ordered by the District Judge sitting at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
The Crown Prosecution Service, which represents the Government of India in the
court proceedings, is appealing against that decision. The appeal is due to be
heard on 10 October 2014. UK Ministers have no involvement in the court proceedings
and it would not be appropriate for me to comment further.
