Volume 712: debated on Tuesday 30 June 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the number, origins and conditions of detention of persons held at Camp Lemonier in Djibouti and on United States ships in the gulf of Aden. [HL4345]

The Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office
(Baroness Kinnock of Holyhead)

We have no information on either the detention facilities at Camp Lemonier or the numbers, origins or conditions of detention for persons held there and have therefore made no assessment. The UK is not involved in the detention of individuals in Djibouti.
