The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), has had no recent discussions with the high commissioner for Bangladesh about the disappearance of Mr Ali.

I visited Bangladesh from 28 to 30 May 2012 and raised the issue of Mr Ali's disappearance during meetings with the Bangladesh Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, and the leader of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, Khaleda Zia. Our high commissioner to Bangladesh has also raised the case of Mr Ali on a number of occasions.

We continue to urge the Bangladeshi authorities to do all they can to investigate disappearances in Bangladesh, including that of Mr Ali.
