Foreign Office, S.W.I.
1st October 1945
With further reference to your letter of the 14th August concerning Manuel Marquez Sanchez, I have now received information through His Majesty's Ambassador in Spain that Senor Sanchez was arrested on a political charge and condemned to 30 years imprisonment. It is understood however, that he has applied to be released on provisional liberty and that his request has been granted. Further information is expected shortly.
Meanwhile, His Majesty's Ambassador has brought the matter to the notice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Right. Honourable
Sir Walter Citrine, K.B.E
