HL Deb 17 June 2002 vol 636 c53WA
Earl Attlee

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What views they have expressed to the Moroccan authorities about the imprisonment of Mr Steven Bryant, who has spent longer in a Moroccan prison following a conviction for drug offences than he would have done if convicted by a United Kingdom court for the same offence committed in the United Kingdom. [HL4441]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Amos)

We have given, and will continue to offer, all the consular assistance we properly can to Mr Bryant. However, the United Kingdom does not interfere in the judicial processes of other countries. Our own judicial proceedings are similarly protected.
