As outlined in the answer to Question 261149 of 14 June, our Ambassador in Muscat raised the arrests with the Omani authorities on 27 May. We have received strong assurances from the Omani Government that the individuals arrested were prosecuted in accordance with Oman’s Penal Code and human rights commitments enshrined in Oman’s Basic Law (the Omani constitution). We continue to monitor developments in this case closely.
