Ben Wallace (Lancaster and Wyre, Conservative)
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she has made to the Government of Equatorial Guinea concerning the extradition request of UK citizen Simon Mann from Zimbabwe to that country.
Kim Howells (Minister of State (Middle East), Foreign & Commonwealth Office; Pontypridd, Labour)
We are aware that the Equatorial Guinean authorities are seeking Simon Mann's extradition from Zimbabwe. We are providing all appropriate consular assistance to Mr. Mann and his next of kin in the UK and will remain in contact with them as legal proceedings progress. At this stage, we have no plans to raise Mr. Mann's case with the Government of Equatorial Guinea.
