HL Deb 31 March 1980 vol 407 c1252WA
The Marquess of AILESBURY

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many Britons are in prison in Angola; and, of that number, how many are alleged to have fought against the Angolan Government.


There are currently seven British nationals imprisoned in Angola. They were all convicted in June 1976 of being mercenaries engaged in a war against Angola.
