HC Deb 28 November 1988 vol 142 c109W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if, during the recent visit to Zimbabwe by the Minister of State, there was any discussion about the human rights implications of the decision of the Chief Justice of Zimbabwe to reduce from 25 to 12 years the sentence passed upon Odile Harrington; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Chalker

No. The Zimbabwean Supreme Court's decision to reduce the sentence of Miss Odile Harrington, who is not a British citizen, was taken after I returned from Africa.
