United Kingdom: MPs call on UK to help whistleblower facing extradition to Monaco

A cross-party group of MPs is urging the Foreign Office to support a corruption whistleblower who says he is the victim of “political persecution” in Monaco.

Margaret Hodge, a former Labour minister, Andrew Mitchell, a former Tory minister, and other politicians are calling on the foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, to help Jonathan Taylor, a 51-year-old British lawyer who was recently arrested while on holiday in Croatia.

He was arrested at the request of the authorities in Monaco. The MPs are pressing the British government to help bring Taylor back to the UK because of the “high-level corruption” he has exposed.
