Sir David Amess, 69, a British MP since 1983, was murdered while he was holding a constituency surgery – where voters can meet their MP and discuss concerns – at Belfairs Methodist Church in Eastwood Road North.
According to British media, police have said that a 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder after the stabbing at a church in Leigh-on-Sea.
Southend councilor John Lamb told the BBC that Sir David moved his surgeries to different locations around the constituency “to meet the people” and said the attack was “absolutely dreadful.” “We’ve lost a very good, hard-working constituency MP who worked for everyone,” he said.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid said he was “a great man, a great friend, and a great MP killed while fulfilling his democratic role.”
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the NCRI, offered her condolences on behalf of the Iranian Opposition and the Iranian people and tweeted:
“Profoundly saddened, I offer my deep condolences on the passing of Sir David Amess due to a criminal stabbing. He was an honorable friend of the Iranian people and the Iranian Resistance in their quest for freedom and democracy.”
“Today, the Iranian Resistance lost an extraordinary friend, and the people of Britain lost a great advocate of freedom and democracy. David Amess was a staunch enemy of dictators, especially the mullahs’ tyranny. Sir David will always remain in our thoughts.”
