Following the detention of the International Criminal Court (ICC) representatives during a visit to Saif al-Islam al Gaddafi on 7 July, our ambassador in Tripoli has been working closely with the Libyan authorities, ICC representatives and other partners to secure a rapid resolution to this case. He has discussed this issue on a number of occasions with several Libyan counterparts, including Prime Minister al-Kib and Libyan Deputy Foreign Minister Abdul Aziz. Given UK consular responsibility for Commonwealth Citizens, our ambassador in Tripoli and the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), have been in especially close touch with Australian counterparts to support their requests for consular access. We will continue to encourage all parties to conclude the negotiations to secure the release of the delegation so that the ICC and Libyan authorities can resume co-operation on the case involving Saif al-Islam al Gaddafi.
