Christopher Tappin - Media Release

Media Release

Christopher Tappin

Prior to Mr Tappin’s extradition I wrote to the Prime Minister, Home Secretary and the Attorney General to ask them to make representations to the US Prosecutors to withdraw their objections to Mr Tappin being granted bail.  So far as I am aware no representations have been made and as we all now know Mr Tappin has been remanded into custody.  I understand that he is being held in very unsuitable conditions including being shackled, having no reading material and having the light on 24 hours a day meaning that he is unable to sleep.

There is an opportunity next week to appeal the decision to remand Mr Tappin in custody and I would once again urge our Government to make representations to the US Government to allow Mr Tappin bail.

When the Natwest Three were extradited Tony Blair ordered Baroness Scotland to go to the United States to make representations on the Natwest Three’s behalf to obtain bail.  I fail to understand why our Government has not done the same for a 65 year old grandfather.
