Zimbabwe: Human Rights

Volume 692: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have made representations to the Government of Zimbabwe concerning the human rights of Simon Mann, in light of recent reports that he may be deported from Zimbabwe to Equatorial Guinea. [HL3771]

We are aware that the Equatorial Guinean authorities are seeking Simon Mann’s extradition from Zimbabwe. We are providing full consular assistance to Mr Mann and his next of kin in the UK and will remain in contact with them as legal proceedings progress. Our embassy in Harare has raised our concerns over the human rights aspects of this case with the Zimbabwean Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
