I was very pleased to hear the news that Conor Howard will return to East Lothian following the Greek Court dismissing the extradition against him from Qatar.
I’m delighted that the nightmare for him and his family is over, and he is able to come home. It has been fraught and so unnecessary. I was pleased to be advised by the Qatar Embassy that the warrant has been cancelled as I had worried about any future travel by him facing similar risks. This brings that to an end but it should never have come about in the first place and I hope Qatar will reflect on that.
