HC Deb 29 June 1893 vol 14 c361
SIR G. SITWELL (Scarborough)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Archbishops of Marash and Zeitoun and the Bishop of Moush are still in prison after a mock trial; and whether any steps have been taken to obtain their release?


We have no information respecting the Bishop of Moush; the sentences on the two Archbishops were brought before the Court of Cassation, and that on the Archbishop of Zeitoun was confirmed. We have not heard definitely as to the confirmation of the sentence on the Archbishop of Marash, but unofficial representations were made on behalf of both Archbishops.
