§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, further to the answer of 19 July, what were the authorised procedures for the trial of Mr. Robin Walsh in Oman; when they took place; and what was the sentence imposed.
§ Mr. Luce
The solicitors acting for Mr. Walsh's family have asked that the details of this case should not be published. In general, however, I understand that these procedures took the form of an administrative hearing shortly before Mr. Walsh was committed to prison on 6 July 1983, and that these procedures were in accordance with Omani law.
