The Foreign Secretary has not raised this issue directly with his counterpart.

South African Government policy is to address all criminal activity with equal concern and without preferential treatment being afforded to any race or group. Our High Commission in South Africa raises issues of concern with the South African authorities where necessary, in particular where UK nationals are involved.
