Written answers (Question to Foreign)

I am aware of this ongoing consular case.

While I understand this must be a very difficult situation for the citizen, neither the Embassy nor the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade can interfere with the judicial and legal processes in another country, including on visa and immigration matters.

I can confirm that the citizen in question is in direct contact with the Embassy in Beijing which continues to provide appropriate advice and support.
