Since this ruling, senior officials from the UK and Mauritius have met on three occasions to discuss implementing the Award. In line with the Award, the UK will continue to work with Mauritius to agree the best way to meet our obligation to ensure fishing rights in the territorial sea remain available to Mauritius, so far as practicable.

star this property answer text <p>In 2017 the then Foreign Secretary issued a revised version of the UK Guidelines on Working with Human Rights Defenders to the diplomatic network. In addition, all Human Rights Priority Countries are required to have a Human Rights Strategy, that includes support for human rights defenders working on the range of human rights, including those related to the environment. Depending on the local context, this might involve making public statements, attending trials, or working privately with the host government. Funding for projects through the Magna Carta Fund, further supports the work of the diplomatic network in supporting human rights defenders. The UK also works through the multilateral system, to develop consensus among members for the protection of all human rights defenders, including protection against reprisals, arbitrary detention and violence. It is the long-standing policy of the UK, to oppose the death penalty in all circumstances, as a matter of principle.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​We are aware of Hayat Belkacem's death. However, we frequently discuss migration-related issues with the Moroccans, most recently at a briefing hosted by the Moroccan Foreign Minister last week. Through our development programmes we are also supporting Moroccan efforts to address the root causes of migration. The UK remains committed to a comprehensive, &quot;whole-of-route&quot; approach, involving targeted interventions at each stage of a migrant's journey. This is the most effective long-term solution to unmanaged, irregular migration. We will play an active role in the Global Compact meetings in Marrakech in December as we work with the international community on this issue.</p> more like this
