Rwanda

Volume 454: debated on Tuesday 5 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether any people suspected of participation in the Rwandan genocide have been detained in England and Wales in the last six months. (105827)

No one in England and Wales has been detained in the last six months on charges concerning the genocide which took place in Rwanda. But no one fleeing international justice should expect to find safe haven here.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what discussions he has had with Rwandan authorities on the potential for extradition to Rwanda of people suspected of participation in the Rwandan genocide. (105828)

As a matter of general policy, it would not be appropriate to comment on whether discussions of this kind have taken place with a foreign state.
