Uganda: Armed Conflict

Volume 459: debated on Monday 30 April 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she has made to the Ugandan authorities on the declaration by President Museveni and his Security Minister Amama Mbabazi that the People’s Redemption Army suspects will only be released if they apply for amnesty; and if she will make a statement. (134235)

We continue to raise our wider concerns about the continued detention of the People’s Redemption Army suspects with the Government of Uganda. Most recently, our High Commissioner in Kampala, with other EU Heads of Mission, made representations about this issue to Foreign Minister Kutesa on 13 April.

We will continue to make representations until the Government of Uganda abides by the constitution and respects the rule of law and independence of the judiciary.
