HC Deb 05 July 1978 vol 953 c206W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he is satisfied with the conditions under which certain British subjects are being imprisoned in Luanda, Angola.


In the absence of direct consular access by our Chargé d'Affaires in Luanda to the British prisoners there, we have no first hand knowledge of their conditions. But a senior American diplomat, who recently visited Luanda, saw one of the prisoners, Mr. Fortuin, on 24th June. Mr. Fortuin told him that he and his fellow British prisoners were well, and that their food and treatment was satisfactory.
