Christopher Tappin's son: 'Since dad's left we have not spoken to him'

Elaine Tappin was accompanied by her son, Neil, when she appeared before the MPs on the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee to talk about her husband Christopher's extradition.

He said:

"Since dad's left we have not spoken to him, we heard last night from the British Consulate he is allowed one hour outside of his cell and has had his reading material taken away from him.

They'll probably oppose bail because he's a flight risk.. bizarre they should do that as he got himself to Heathrow..."

– Neil Tappin
