Question No 7 by Gay Mitchell (H-0973/07 )

Subject: Protection of EU citizens in Muslim countries

In November of last year, a British teacher was accused of insulting Islam while teaching in Sudan after allowing her class of seven-year-olds to name a teddy bear Mohammed. If convicted she could face 40 lashes, a large fine or a jail sentence.

What can the EU do to give better protection to innocent EU citizens in Muslim countries who find themselves in terrible situations such as this?
