DEL Amitri frontman Justin Currie has asked doting fans who want to donate money to charity in his honour to send it to a human rights cause which has helped people facing the death sentence.

The singer revealed he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s in February and last month spoke about how it had “already changed” his personality although “not necessarily in negative ways”.

Fans have since been contacting his fan club page on Facebook asking if they can make a donation to charity. 

Currie has since said he would like any donations to go to Reprieve which fights for justice for some of the world’s most vulnerable people, from those illegally detained in Guantanamo Bay to people on death row.

The charity has famously been publicly campaigning for the release of Scot Jagtar Singh Johal who has been detained in India for six years.

He was accused of helping to fund a Sikh-on-Hindu assassination plot in India following his wedding in 2017, an accusation strongly denied by Johal and his family.

Currie has said Reprieve is a very important cause to him and he would love to see funds raised for the charity.

Asked by Reprieve why he wanted to support the cause, he said: “I have been a big fan of Reprieve’s tireless legal work in Guantanamo and representing people under sentence of death, the most iniquitous punishment meted out by human organisations.

“I regard institutional violence as the basest of all human activity and any court handing down such punishment as morally redundant.”

So far a JustGiving page has racked up more than £5600 for the charity from more than 260 supporters.

The singer has produced a documentary to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on the impact of Parkinson’s on his work as a performer.
