Founder, Justice Upheld
Jas Uppal is a practising solicitor and the founder of ‘Justice Upheld’, a British registered international human rights charity which was established to provide legal help and representation to victims of human rights abuses who do not have the financial means and approach to assert their rights and seek redress.
In 2009, Jas started the ‘Free Sarabjit Singh Campaign’ to help and highlight the plight of Sarabjit Singh, an Indian national sentenced to death in Pakistan following spurious conviction for espionage.
Jas was awarded the runner up prize by the ‘Sheila McKenchie Foundation’ in 2013 under the category of ‘Global Action’.
