HC Deb 08 July 2003 vol 408 cc734-5W
20. Ann Clwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the re-trial of Leyla Zana and her three colleagues in Turkey. [123885]

Mr. MacShane

We welcome the Turkish reforms which allow for the re-trial of cases in line with ECHR rulings and the subsequent decision to re-try Leyla Zana and her co-defendants. We are monitoring the trial closely and co-ordinate with EU Partners to ensure that all hearings are attended.
