Rizana Nafeek

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the government of Saudi Arabia on the execution of Rizana Nafeek; and if he will make a statement. (151251)

No representations have been made by my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary to the Government of Saudi Arabia on behalf of Rizana Nafeek, a Sri-Lankan national.

Representatives for Rizana Nafeek filed an appeal against the conviction on 15 July. The judicial process around the case is therefore ongoing. Our embassy in Riyadh will continue to monitor developments.
