star this property answer text <p>The UK has consistently called for the situation in Syria to be referred to the International Criminal Court and supported efforts at the UN Security Council to achieve this. However, these efforts were blocked by Russia and China on 22 May 2014. In partnership with other donor countries, we have funded the collection of documentary evidence of human rights abuses and violations. We will also look to expand the EU sanctions regime to cover more people responsible for human rights abuses and violations. We will continue to press for those responsible to be held accountable.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK does not supply weapons to anyone in Syria, and we have played a major role in trying to prevent both the regime and extremists in Syria from acquiring weapons. <br><br>UN sanctions require that no states, groups or individuals may make available arms or funds to designated groups or individuals. In February 2015 the UN Security Council unanimously adopted UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2199, which the British Government co-sponsored. UNSCR 2199 specifically targets the fund raising methods used by Al-Qaida and its affiliates operating in Syria and Iraq. <br><br>The UK is also at the forefront of efforts to broaden the EU Syria sanctions regime, which limits the regime's access to funding. This year the EU has listed 24 new Syrian regime ministers who are jointly responsible for the regime’s reprehensible policies. There are several EU-Syria trade embargoes currently in place, including prohibiting exportation of chemical weapons (and precursors) and luxury goods to Syria, importation of oil from Syria and access to EU financial institutions. <br><br>We will work hard to sustain these efforts.</p>

star this property answer text <p>It is the long-standing policy of the Government to oppose the death penalty in all circumstances as a matter of principle. The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth East (Mr Ellwood), raised our concerns over the sentencing to death of former President Morsi with the Egyptian Ambassador in May. He also issued a statement setting out our concern and noting that there are further stages in the legal process, which we will continue to follow closely.</p><p>We do not underestimate the challenges Egypt faces, including long-standing militancy in Sinai. Stability and security in the long run is best served by bringing as many groups as possible into political processes. We have been clear that the Egyptian authorities must apply the rule of law consistently in line with international standards, and protect the political and legal rights of all Egyptians as the basis for the country’s future stability.</p> more like this

We encourage the Government of Kenya to maintain its global leadership role on this issue as well as its international obligations. We, and the international community, support the continued dialogue with the Government of Somalia and the Tripartite agreement which provides a legal framework for the voluntary repatriation of Somali refugees.</p><p>We strongly support Kenyan troops deployed to Somalia as part of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). AMISOM has made important progress against Al Shabaab since 2007, who continue to pose a significant terrorist threat in Somali and the region. We greatly value the contribution made by Kenya and the other troop contributing countries, and recognise the sacrifices that the Kenyan Defence Forces are making.</p> more like this

star this property answer text We recognise the important contribution that recognised religious leaders can make on the Syria political track. Along with other leading members of civil society, they will need a strong voice in the debate on Syria’s future. The UK has engaged directly with a number of religious leaders and representatives of minority communities. The UK has also been funding projects aimed at promoting dialogue between different ethnic and sectarian groups in Syria, as we seek further progress on a political settlement. Minorities including Alawites, Christians, Druze, Kurds and Turkmen have been represented in these projects. more like this
