I dont know or have heard of the case you have mentioned, so would need some details of the case before I can comment.
However this particular petition is part and parcel of the UK Prime Minister's modus operandi whereby every UK citizens is entitled to petition the PM with a proiviso that the PM will only respond when 500 signatures have been secured.
Not withstanding the veracity of the case you have mentioned, it would be highly unlikely if not downright impossible for the UK PM to sue a citizen for signing a petition through a system that they have themselves put in place! So the question of indemnity is, in my view, a red herring.
If it will be of any comfort, please note that the petition was signed by several lawyers including that of the Chagos Refugees Group, Mr Richard Gifford.
