star this property answer text <p>The Rapid Support Forces Act of January 2017 removed the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) from the command of the National Intelligence and Security Service and set out that Sudan's president would appoint directly the commander of the RSF. The British Government acknowledges the links between the RSF and the Sudanese Armed Forces, including the hosting of RSF personnel at Sudanese Armed Forces facilities, but seeks where possible to avoid active engagement with the RSF.</p> more like this

However, the detention of individuals and groups from proscribed religious groups, and senior individuals from religious organisations, is of concern. The UK regularly raises this matter at UN Human Rights Council dialogues on Eritrea.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are aware of recent reports regarding Mohamed Boshi and are tracking the case. The UK regularly raises concerns about freedom of expression with both the Egyptian and Sudanese Governments both in public and private. On 18 September we issued a statement at the UN Human Rights Council in which we raised specific concerns about the 'arrests of activists, bloggers and journalists'. The Minister for the Middle East and North Africa also raised concerns over freedom of expression with the Egyptian Foreign Minister during his visit to Cairo on 14 October. Freedom of expression and freedom of the media also remain a key focus of the human rights strand of the UK-Sudan Strategic Dialogue. During the most recent round of talks, held in London in November, a wide range of human rights issues were discussed with the Government of Sudan, and the Minister for the Commonwealth and the UN specifically raised the importance that the UK places on improvements in freedom of the media.</p> more like this

While levels of violence have reduced since the signing of the peace agreement on 12 September, progress on implementation is slow and inconsistent, violations of the ceasefire continue in some areas, and levels of crime remain high. Through diplomatic engagement by Ministers and senior officials, we continue to urge the parties to demonstrate their commitment to providing safety and security for the South Sudanese people across the country by putting an immediate end to all violence.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Through diplomatic action the UK seeks to show there will be no impunity for perpetrators of sexual violence in conflict in Burma, including in Kachin and Shan States. In September 2018 the UK co-sponsored the UN Human Rights Council Resolution which established a mechanism to collect and preserve evidence of human rights violations in Burma, including Kachin and Shan states, for use in future prosecutions. The Resolution also called for Burma's Commission of Inquiry to hold to account all those responsible for crimes committed during military operations in Rakhine State, including conflict-related sexual and gender-based violence. The UK co-sponsored the UN General Assembly's Third Committee Resolution which was passed on 15 November and called for a full and independent investigation of human rights violations and abuses committed in Burma, including those reported by the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict.</p> more like this
