Welcoming Home Camberwell & Peckham resident Rebecca Prosser


After 5 months of detention in an Indonesian prison Camberwell journalist and resident Rebecca Prosser finally returned home to her family on the 11th November.

Rebecca and fellow journalist Neil Bonner were arrested by the Indonesian Navy while filming a documentary about piracy in the     Malacca Strait. They were doing their jobs and were not criminals.

I pressed for Rebecca’s release and met with FCO Minister Hugo Swire MP, the Indonesian Ambassador H.E. Mr. Thayeb and asked the Secretary of State at Foreign and Commonwealth questions to do all he could to support Rebecca whilst she was detained and to ensure that she was allowed to return home.

On her return I was delighted to welcome, Rebecca, her family and Neil to Parliament for tea.
