Answered on: 22 June 2015

Our Ambassador in Khartoum raised the cases of Reverend Yat Michael and Reverend Peter Reith with the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs in March. In addition, officials at our Embassy in Khartoum are in close contact with the legal team working on behalf of the two pastors and are co-ordinating with other Embassies in Khartoum to ensure the international community is represented at the ongoing legal proceedings.
