To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she made to the authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo on the treatment in detention of Marie Therese Nlandu. (126713)

The Government are closely following the continued detention of Mme Nlandu. Our ambassador in Kinshasa has raised the case of Mme Nlandu on several occasions with Congolese Ministers, the Congolese Interior Minister and President Kabila's advisers. He raised the case with President Kabila himself on 2 February. Embassy officials in Kinshasa have also been present during some of her appearances in court and visited her in prison on 16 February. We will continue to monitor her situation and treatment closely. International partners are doing the same.
