Holding answer received on 24 March 2017

We currently consider calling for his release would risk the progress we have made in his case, including legal access and our own access to him. Our consular priorities continue to be Mr Tsege's wellbeing, his access to legal representation, and to ensure that the death sentence is not carried out. We keep our case strategy under regular review.
