HC Deb 10 June 1913 vol 53 c1460W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether

Armando Normand has been arrested in Bolivia and is to be tried at Iquitos on charges connected with atrocities committed in the Putumayo district; whether he can state when the trial will take place; and whether he will instruct His Majesty' Minister at Lima to furnish him with a full report of the trial for the information of this House?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative and to the second in the negative. As regards the last part, I understand that there is no trial in open Court in Peru. His Majesty's Consul at Iquitos has, however, been instructed to obtain what information he can from the documents of the case, which I am informed are open to public inspection, and will furnish a Report upon them.
