Who can help?

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO):

The FCO is represented overseas by its Embassies and Consulates (High Commission in Commonwealth Countries). Both employ consular officers, and one of their duties is to provide help and advice to any British National who gets into difficulty in a foreign country.

About the Embassy

We are impartial; we are not here to judge you. We aim to make sure that you are treated properly and fairly in accordance with local regulations, and that you are treated no less favourably than other prisoners.
We can answer questions about your welfare and about prison regulations but you must ask your lawyer or the court about legal matters. The attached list of lawyers is provided by the British Embassy for your convenience, but neither Her Majesty’s Government, nor any official of the Consulate, take any responsibility for the competence or probity of any firm/advocate on the list or for the consequence of any legal action initiated or advice given.
We cannot get you out of prison, pay fines or stand bail or interfere with local judicial procedures to get you out of prison nor secure you an earlier trial date; we cannot investigate a crime.
We have tried to make sure that the information in this booklet is accurate and up to date, but the British Embassy cannot accept legal responsibility for any errors or omissions in the information. If in doubt contact a lawyer.

First Steps

Who will know I have been detained?

The British Embassy aims to contact any arrested British national in Peru within 24 hours after notification by the Peruvian authorities. Please bear in mind that the Peruvian authorities do not always advise the Embassy of arrests with immediate effect, so remind them you need to see a Consular Officer as soon as possible.
A Consular Officer will visit you while you are detained during the initial investigations.
The Consular Directorate of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the United Kingdom will be aware of your condition and the assistance the Embassy in Lima is providing you with.
