HC Deb 27 July 1983 vol 46 c493W
Mr. Bright

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he has had direct contact with his opposite number in Turkey to discuss the case of Mr. Dennis Buisson, arrested for allegedly trespassing on military property while bird watching.

Mr. Whitney

No. The British embassy in Ankara has, however, kept in touch with the Turkish authorities and was pleased to learn on 22 July that Mr. Buisson's passport was to be returned to him and that he would be free to leave Turkey.
