It is not the Government's practice to disclose whether they have sought legal advice on a particular issue. Simon Mann is subject to legal proceedings under domestic Equatorial Guinean law. The conduct of those proceedings is a matter for Mr. Mann and his lawyers. We continue to provide Mr. Mann with assistance in line with our consular policy.
