HL Deb 31 January 1984 vol 447 cc647-8WA
Lord Jenkins of Putney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they are taking to secure the release of Mahmut Dikerdem from imprisonment by the Turkish military authorities.

Baroness Young

Mr. Mahmut Dikerdem was sentenced to a term of imprisonment on 14th November 1983 under the Turkish Penal Code. The sentence is now under appeal. It is not our practice to intervene in individual cases in which citizens of another country have been tried under their own legal system.
