Iris Robinson (Strangford, DUP)
To ask the Secretary of Statefor Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she has made to the Government of Indonesia about the (a) trials and (b) planned execution of Fabianus Tibo, Dominggus da Silva and Marianus Riwu; and if she will make a statement.
Ian McCartney (Minister of State (Trade), Foreign & Commonwealth Office; Makerfield, Labour)
I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave her on
Since my reply, the Supreme Court has turned down a second appeal by the three men. The review panel reached a unanimous verdict stating that there was no new evidence to warrant a further review of the case. Unless new evidence comes to light the three have no further recourse for appeals in Indonesia.
We will support further representations made to the Indonesian Government through the European Union.
