star this property answer text <p>The UN African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) has stated that it was denied access by Government of Sudan forces when UNAMID tried to visit Tabit on 4 November. We are aware of other reports claiming UNAMID did gain access on 4 November but we have not seen evidence to support these claims. The UK is not at this time pushing for an inquiry into UNAMID’s actions on 4 November. We note that UNAMID was granted access to Tabit on 9 November, but are concerned by reports that their investigations took place under the close observation of Sudanese security officials. We urge both UNAMID and the Government of Sudan to immediately take forward their investigations so that the full facts around the deeply disturbing allegation of mass rape in Tabit can be established.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Syrian Vulnerable Persons Relocation (VPR) scheme is based on need rather than fulfilling a set quota; it is designed to help the most vulnerable displaced Syrians who cannot be supported effectively in the region, and prioritises women and children at risk, survivors of torture and violence and those in need of medical care.</p><p>However, we have said that we expect the scheme to help several hundred people over three years, and we remain on track to deliver that commitment. 50 people were relocated to the UK under the scheme between the first group of arrivals on 25 March and the end of June. (This is the latest publicly available figure, as numbers are released as part of the publication of Home Office official statistics each quarter; the number of arrivals under the scheme up to September 2014 will be published on 27 November.) Groups are arriving in the UK on a regular basis, and we continue to work closely with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to identify Syrian refugees who are most at risk and schedule their relocation to the UK. Given the vulnerability of beneficiaries of the scheme, it is essential that the specific support they need is available when they arrive, and we also continue to work with local authorities and partners in the UK to ensure this is in place.</p><p> </p>
