To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether she has made recent representations to the Ugandan government on its relationship with the Presidential candidate Jean-Pierre Bemba and the Mouvement de Libération du Congo. (130513)

We have regular high-level discussions with members of Uganda’s government and have regularly raised Uganda’s role in stability in the region. We have not made any recent representations specifically regarding the Democratic Republic of Congo’s opposition leader Jean-Pierre Bemba or the Mouvement de Libération du Congo.

Our High Commissioner in Kampala saw President Museveni most recently on 28 February to discuss efforts to resolve the conflict in northern Uganda and concerns over the rule of law in relation to the detention of the alleged People’s Redemption Army suspects.
