We have raised Mr Adorus’ allegations of mistreatment during his detention in Ethiopia on numerous occasions, including at Ministerial level. The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my hon. Friend the Member for Boston and Skegness (Mr Simmonds), spoke with Foreign Minister Tedros about the case on 11 July. We have reminded the Ethiopian government of its obligations under the Convention against Torture, to which it is a signatory, to follow up on allegations through an independent, impartial and transparent investigation. We will continue to do so and provide all appropriate consular support to Mr Adorus, raising any welfare issues with the Ethiopian authorities to ensure that he is properly looked after.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>(1) More progress needs to be made on improving respect for the human rights of prisoners and detainees in Libya, although the political and security context in Libya remains very challenging. The UK Government does not document individual allegations of rape and sexual violence in Libya but does engage regularly with human rights organisations and the UN on these issues. The 2016 Foreign and Commonwealth Office Human Rights report outlines UK activity in further detail. Through our programming we have worked with the Libyan authorities to improve conditions in detention centres in Libya. For example, so far this year, the Department for International Development has supported more than 20,000 emergency interventions in areas which include healthcare, psychosocial support, hygiene kits and safe shelter. We also provide specific support to women and girls, to protect them from the heightened risks of sexual and gender based violence.</p><p>(2) The United Kingdom has a legal obligation to cooperate with the International Criminal Court. We have a centralised system for responding to all requests from the Office of the Prosecutor and we have established guidelines and set standard procedures to ensure we share information with the International Criminal Court where appropriate.</p>

This action violated the UN Charter, was illegal under international law and breached a number of commitments Russia had made. It is for these reasons that Russia has subsequently been isolated in the Security Council and in the wider international community.</p> more like this

The Commission was particularly concerned by the growing number of violations where the ruling party's youth league, the Imbonerakure, had played a role. We are working with UN, EU and African Union partners to support an inclusive, negotiated solution to the political crisis.</p><p>Since 2015, the Department for International Development has provided significant humanitarian support both inside Burundi and to Burundian refugees in the region, supporting around 300,000 refugees in Rwanda and Tanzania since the crisis began.
