Condolence Statement from the Somali Organisations and Community Leaders

16th October  2021

We, the co-signatures of this press release, are shocked and saddened by the senseless violence perpetrated upon an innocent MP Sir David Amess who died after being stabbed multiple times at his constituency surgery in Essex.

We express our deepest sympathy and condolences to Sir David Amess’s family, loved ones and his constituents. Everyone who knew Sir David Amess described him as ‘one of the kindest, most compassionate, and a distinguished public servant’ who committed and devoted to serving his community. Sir David Amess promoted our shared values of tolerance, love and respect that make Britain so great.

Once again, our thoughts and prayers are with Sir David Amess’s family, loved ones, and anyone who has been affected by this callous act.
