||We remain deeply concerned by the case of Lee Po and his involuntary removal to the
mainland, which was a serious breach of the Joint Declaration. The Foreign Secretary,
my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), raised the
case of Mr Lee with the Hong Kong and Chinese authorities on 8 and 9 April. We continue
to call for Mr Lee’s liberty to be fully restored and remain ready to provide consular
assistance. To date we have not been granted consular access to him.
