Michael Shields

Volume 476: debated on Monday 19 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what (a) advice he has commissioned on and (b) response he has made to the recent letter from the government of Bulgaria on the possibility of a pardon for Michael Shields; and if he will make a statement. (206587)

Further advice is being sought on Michael Shields case, including on the legal issues involved. I will respond to Mr. Shields’ representative as soon as I can.

Arlene McCarthy MEP recently forwarded to me a letter received from the Minister of Justice of Bulgaria and I have responded to her in similar terms to those aforementioned.
