I would like to take this opportunity to offer my deepest condolences to the family of Christine Robinson who was tragically murdered in South Africa in 2014. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Mr Johnson) has not raised this case with his South African counterpart; However Foreign and Commonwealth Office officials in South Africa and London continue to engage regularly with the South African authorities and will provide what support we can to the family at this difficult time. While we cannot interfere in another country's investigation we will ensure that the South African authorities are aware of the family's concerns and our desire to see those guilty brought to justice.
