Christopher Wing in the case of the 'missing 54'

22 September 2015

Christopher Wing recently appeared in the Supreme Court of Dehli on behalf of a number of Indian families in a bid to secure the release of 54 prisoners of war allegedly still in captivity from the fourteen day conflict between India and Pakistan which ended in 1971. For the 45 years following the end of the conflict, both governments have denied the existence of the prisoners and Christopher, along with his colleague Jas Uppal, persuaded the Court that there should be a further hearing to determine the Indian Government's response.
