UK bishops urge Indian government to release Fr Swamy

Light of Truth

Cardinal Vincent Nichols, president of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, has joined calls for the government of India to release Father Stan Swamy. The 83-year-old Indian Jesuit priest and social activist has been imprisoned since October 9, 2020, on unfounded charges of sedition and terrorism.
In an open letter published on India’s Republic Day, January 26, the Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, and Father Damian Howard, provincial of the Jesuits in Britain, urge Indian authorities to grant bail to Father Stan Swamy, on humanitarian grounds.
They make this plea, “so that he can receive the medical attention he needs and challenge the manifestly unjust charges brought against him.”
