We have not specifically raised Mr al-Johani's case with the Saudi Arabian Government. However, Ministers and officials do take every opportunity to raise with the Saudi authorities our full range of human rights concerns, including detention without trial. I did so most recently when I called on the National Society for Human Rights on 23 November, a Saudi human rights organisation with close links to the Saudi Arabian Government.
