Nowadays marks four years that Paul Whelan has invested wrongfully detained, away from his family, suffering through an unfathomable ordeal. Russian specialists subjected him to a key trial and sentenced your pet to 16 years inside a Russian penal colony based on secret evidence. Their detention remains unacceptable, and we continue to press for his immediate release at every chance. I am committed to bringing home Paul and all U. H. hostages and wrongful detainees held around the world. As the Chief executive said directly to the Whelan family, our initiatives to secure Paul’s release will not cease until he is at home with his family where he goes.
