star this property answer text <p>I raised concern regarding the response to protests in Sudan, including the use of lethal force, with the Sudanese Foreign Minister on 22 January and emphasised the importance of respect for the rule of law and for human rights. In addition, senior officials in Khartoum continue to engage regularly with the Government of Sudan to register UK concerns directly, stressing the need for an end to violence and delivering much needed economic and political reforms for the people of Sudan.</p> more like this

Six members of the PSVI Team of Experts have been deployed to Bangladesh by this Department in support of survivors of sexual violence among Rohingya refugees. These experts have been deployed, for example, to build the capacity of others, including through training on gathering and preserving evidence of sexual violence in line with the International Protocol on Investigation and Documentation of Sexual Violence in Conflict. There are 37 people with a range of skills in the PSVI Team of Experts, such as Criminal Lawyers, Gender Based Violence Experts, and International Investigating Officers.

star this property answer text <p>​As I said in answer to the Rt Hon Emily Thornberry MP on 9 November, the UN does not have a specific trust fund for victims of sexual violence. However, In March 2016, the UN Secretary-General established the UN’s Trust Fund in Support of Victims of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse, to provide greater support to victims of sexual exploitation and abuse by UN and related personnel. We are studying this Fund’s effectiveness and whether it provides adequate support for victims of sexual violence before taking a decision on whether to contribute. The UK is committed to ending sexual exploitation and abuse by those who are entrusted with protecting some of the most vulnerable people in the world. That is why we have committed around $3m to supporting the UN’s work on this issue since 2016, and wholeheartedly support the efforts of the UN Secretary-General to tackle this issue robustly. The UK’s Safeguarding conference in October was an important milestone in advancing the international effort to eradicate sexual exploitation and abuse within the international development sector.</p>
