Mr Craig Alden And The Albrigo Warboys Brasil Orphanage

EDM number 1592 in 2002-03, proposed by Brian Mawhinney on 15/07/2003.

That this House congratulates Mr Craig Alden on establishing the Albrigo Warboys Brasil (AWB) orphanage in 1991 and on the care and education which it has made available to more than 400 needy children over the years; regrets that local officials sought to place 'unsuitable' children in the AWB orphanage for their own reasons; deplores Craig's arrest on highly dubious alleged evidence and the problems of representation and process which he has experienced within the judicial and custodial services; regrets the charges of child abuse levelled against him; thanks the Foreign Office and local consular staff for the assistance they have given to Craig; and calls on the Brazilian authorities to ensure that he gets an early habeas corpus hearing before the Brazilian Supreme Court and all the benefits which would flow from the application of internationally accepted standards of legal due process.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
