None. Simon Mann is a dual British/South African national. As such, and at his request, the South African Embassy are providing consular assistance. At Mr. Mann's request, and with the approval of the Zimbabwean authorities, our consular staff in Harare have, however, visited Mr. Mann in prison and will continue to do so on a regular basis. We have one other British national currently on remand in Zimbabwe awaiting trial, to whom we are providing appropriate consular assistance.
