HC Deb 07 March 1879 vol 244 c402

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether it is true that a Greek named Theodoridi, who was sentenced to seven years' penal servitude on September 27th, 1877, for obtaining money from a lady by threats, is now at liberty; if so, whether he was released at the request of the Turkish Government, and on what grounds?


No application has been made by the Turkish Government to the Foreign Office with respect to the person named. He has been dealt with, so far as I am aware, in the ordinary course by the authorities having the supervision of the execution of the criminal law in this country.
