Please support the Justice4Seeta campaign
Help Southall Black Sisters and Seeta’s family to get justice for Seeta. We must hold the government and police to account for their failures to investigate.
What you can do to help:
- Add your name to the our letter to the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Sir Bernard Hogan – Howe, the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd and the Prime Minister, Theresa May, demanding a meeting with Seeta’s family and urging them to comply with the police and government’s obligations to investigate and prosecute honour-based violence in accordance with domestic and international law and policy.

- Add your name to our letter to the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Boris Johnson, urging the FCO to make urgent representations at the highest level to the Indian authorities to undertake a proper and transparent criminal investigation jointly with the British police into Seeta’s death.
