star this property answer text The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) provides a range of support to bereaved families after the murder of a British National abroad, but does not normally offer financial assistance. We do however provide funding to specialist external partners, Lucie Blackman Trust and Victim Support, who can provide practical support to bereaved families. This help takes many forms, but can include securing financial help. more like this

star this property answer text In cases of terrorism, the Statutory Victims of Terrorism Scheme covers both fatal and personal injury applications, and is administered by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). The latter, reporting to the Ministry of Justice, has received 18 applications related to fatalities since its introduction, on 27 November 2012, and has paid £228,807 across eight successful claims, with seven claims still in process. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office does not provide compensation to the families of British nationals murdered abroad, but does provide advice when there is a relevant local compensation scheme in the country concerned. more like this

star this property answer text <p>Whilst there is no formally agreed international strategy on Sudan, we work closely with likeminded partners in the Troika (the US and Norway) and the EU and to pursue a coherent approach. This is reflected in public statements such as those issued by the Troika and the EU during Sudan’s recent elections. The international community, including the UK, continues to invest significant resources in supporting and protecting the people of Sudan, for example through the African Union-UN Hybrid Peacekeeping Mission in Darfur. In addition, the UK is a leading humanitarian donor in Sudan, with the majority of the Department for International Development’s £47 million programme in 2015-16 focussed on the provision of humanitarian assistance.</p><p> </p> more like this
