Today, compassion wins: aid-worker Rob Lawrie is not going to prison. Over 50,000 of us believed Rob shouldn’t be treated as a criminal for trying to rescue a four-year-old refugee from Calais – but as an ordinary man trying to do the right thing.Today, a French court agreed.
Our huge petition has made headlines all over the world, pushing Rob’s case into the spotlight – and onto the UK Foreign Office agenda. We emailed our support in our thousands – and today the eyes of the world were on a French court in Boulogne.
