star this property answer text <p>​As made clear alongside Troika partners (US and Norway) on 4 June, we condemn the violent attacks by Sudanese security forces against peaceful protestors in Sudan this week, which left many civilians dead or injured. The UK calls for the human rights of all Sudanese people to be respected, the resumption of the political process with the protestors and the opposition, and an agreed transfer of power to a civilian-led government, as demanded by the Sudanese people, in a swift, orderly and peaceful manner. On 6 June, I summoned the Sudanese Ambassador to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to express our grave concerns at the use of violence against civilians by the Sudanese authorities.</p> more like this

These include potential implications for our bilateral extradition treaty, as well as the potential consequences for the UK business community and for UK citizens living in or travelling through Hong Kong. We will continue to seek clarity from the authorities on these points.</p><p> </p><p>The Foreign Secretary and Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chrystia Freeland, issued a Joint Statement on 30 May 2019, which noted concern for the potential effect of the proposals on the large number of UK and Canadian citizens in Hong Kong, on business confidence and on Hong Kong’s international reputation. They made clear that any extradition arrangements in Hong Kong should be in line with ‘One Country, Two Systems’ and fully respect Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy. They also urged the Hong Kong Government to engage meaningfully with Hong Kong’s broad range of local and international stakeholders in order to ensure their concerns are fully considered.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​The UK remains deeply concerned at the worsening situation in the North-West and South-West (Anglophone) regions of Cameroon and reports of human rights violations and abuses. Violence is driving people from their homes and impacting on the lives of ordinary civilians, particularly women and children. The UK is providing lifesaving assistance to thousands of people following a £2.5m contribution in December 2018 to the UN emergency appeal to address the crisis. We continue to call on the Government of Cameroon to take urgent action, with the support of regional partners and the wider international community, to prevent further deterioration, including the establishment of a credible political dialogue to address the root causes of the conflict. The British Government regularly raises concerns about Cameroon at the highest levels including at UN Security Council on 4 June and when I met with Cameroon's High Commissioner to the UK on 30 April. The UK continues to call for unhindered humanitarian access to affected populations, an end to violence and investigations into all reports of human rights violations and abuses.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​The access to justice unit was established in January 2015 to lead on consular support provided to families bereaved through murder or manslaughter. This followed an internal review of the support offered to these families conducted in 2014, and recommendations made by the Foreign Affairs Committee in their 2014 Report on Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) Consular Services. The name of the unit was changed to the Murder and Manslaughter Team shortly after it was established to better reflect the unit’s purpose as a dedicated team supporting those bereaved through murder or manslaughter overseas. This includes working closely with our posts overseas on these often complex and long-running cases.</p> more like this

Together with international partners, we are committed to supporting Nigeria and its neighbours in tackling threats to regional stability by ISWA and Boko Haram. Humanitarian operations have been placed under pressure and some suspended, cutting off urgently needed support for up to 120,000 people. We are working with international partners to support contingency planning to protect aid workers, providing strategic military advice and training, and continue to review options for additional UK assistance.</p> more like this
