The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is fully aware of Ms Reyes's detention, and Ministers are being updated regularly. FCO officials are urging the relevant authorities, where appropriate, to address the concerns raised by Ms Reyes's lawyer about her continued detention. Most recently, on 28 August, HM ambassador to the Dominican Republic wrote to the Attorney-General, about Ms Reyes's detention and has requested a meeting to discuss the case.
