The affair appears to have been taken up in a most thorough manner by Dr. William L. Reynolds who describes himself as being in charge of Sanita, who ensures that the matter is brought, through local representatives, Sir Edmund Lyons at Athens, to the attention of the British Foreign Officer and Lord Palmerston. The matter would appear to have taken on diplomatic legs since evidence suggests that Captain Annibal Cunéo d'Ornani of a French brig-of-war, stationed at Tunis, was said to have been a witness to the agreement for the slaves to be put on board the Miltiade, bound hand and foot. Sir Edmund Lyons at Athens suggests that the Greek Government doesn't appear to have any legislation in place to deal with people involved in Slave Trading or, for that matter, any other measures in place, with the Greek Vice-Consul, F. Pezzoli implying that the slaves were free men once they were brought on board the Miltiade, when witnesses amongst the passengers were happy to confirm that they remained confined to the hold, except when a call a nature required to visit to the upper deck.
