Further to my statement yesterday, I confirm that consular officials from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade have visited two Australian Crown Resorts Limited (Crown) employees detained in China, consistent with the Australia-China Consular Agreement.

We have requested access as soon as possible to a third Australian held in detention.
