HC Deb 15 June 1882 vol 270 cc1226-7

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether the Greek Government have yet instituted the long promised inquiry into the murder of Mr. Ogle; and, if not, whether Her Majesty's Go- vernment will use their best endeavours to secure the earliest possible investigation of the case, and the presence thereat of a representative of this country?


Her Majesty's Minister at Athens telegraphed on the 10th instant that the preliminary inquiry into the circumstances of Mr. Ogle's death had been actively carried out, and that the Greek Government wore now prepared to proceed to an investigation at Vole, at which a British Representative would attend. Mr. Merlin, British Consul at the Pircous, will accordingly be present at the inquiry, which will be proceeded with as soon as possible.
