HC Deb 08 September 2003 vol 410 c19W
Mr. McGrady

To ask the Prime Minister if he will make a statement on the recent detention of John Morgan from West Belfast in Israel. [127966]

The Prime Minister

Mr. Sean O'Muireagain (also known as John Morgan) was arrested in the West Bank on 12 July 2003 and questioned by Israeli security authorities on suspicion of being connected with terrorist activities. The Israeli authorities found no evidence to implicate Mr. O'Muireagain in terrorist activities. He was released on 16 July 2003 and flew back to the UK later the same day. The FCO were in regular contact with Mr. O'Muireagain's family throughout.
