To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Ombashi of Egyptian police, who accompanied the English officers on the day of the affray at Denshawi, gave evidence at the trial of the villagers of Denshawi; and, if so, by whom he was called on to give evidence; whether he has since been put on trial himself; and, if so, what are the charges against him; and before what tribunal is he to be tried.

(Answered by Secretary Sir Edward Grey.) The Ombashi was called upon by the prosecution to give evidence before the court. I am not aware that he has himself since been placed on trial.
