Asked if the Foreign Office accepted that Gillian Gibbons must serve a further ten days in jail, the PMS said that, as was known, the Foreign Secretary met with the Sudanese ambassador again last night and expressed in the strongest terms our concern regarding the continued detention of Gillian Gibbons; we were doing all we could do ensure her release. There was intense activity ongoing but it was not helpful for the PMS to get into the detail of that at the moment. The Prime Minister had spoken to the close family member of Ms Gibbons’ again last night.

Asked for an indication of what the Prime Minister said, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister would have set out our concerns and also the fact that we were doing all we could to ensure her release.

Asked if there were any further contacts planned with Sudan, the PMS said there was ongoing contact at many levels and that we would keep journalists updated as to whether there were any further meetings planned for the Foreign Secretary.
