star this property answer text <p>​We are aware of reports of the murder of Christian school teacher, Suzan Der Kirkour in Idlib, Syria. Given the difficulties of gathering information inside Syria, we are unable to assess who was responsible.</p><p>Christians and people of other religions or beliefs, have suffered in the Syrian conflict, persecuted particularly by Daesh. The persecution of Christians, and indeed individuals of all faiths and beliefs, remains of profound concern to us. The British Government has recently accepted all of the recommendations of the Bishop of Truro's independent Review of Foreign and Commonwealth Office support for persecuted Christians overseas, and we will look to implement them at the earliest opportunity.</p> more like this

Our Embassy in Khartoum has also supported civil society groups advocating on behalf of victims at international fora such as the Human Rights Council. As the transition deal is agreed, respect for human rights, accountability for past abuses and a process of rehabilitation for victims will be essential for its success.</p><p>We are assessing opportunities of further engagement and support to develop justice and reconciliation mechanisms offered by the current political environment.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is very concerned by the human rights situation in Sudan, which is identified as a priority country in the UK's Annual Human Rights Report. Our Embassy in Khartoum monitors the human rights situation in Sudan closely, and frequently raises our concerns in meetings with the authorities. It also administers programmes and workshops to support greater progress on Sudan's human rights obligations. In March 2018, our Embassy in Khartoum funded a workshop for senior representatives of the Sudanese Government, which focused on the steps needed for Sudan's ratification of the UN Convention against torture, which it signed in 1986. We will continue to provide support on this issue and to ensure Sudan meets its human rights obligations.</p><p>There must be accountability for the crimes committed by members of the former regime. We will continue to work with Troika (UK, US and Norway), EU, UN and regional allies to explore how best we can support accountability, including at the UN Human Rights Council in September.</p>
