Sudan: Human Rights

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 20 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has received reports of forcible repatriation of foreign nationals resident in Sudan to countries where they are at risk of persecution. (186966)

The UK has not received any official reports or representations on the forcible repatriation of foreign nationals resident in Sudan.

However, we remain in close contact with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Sudan who is responsible for ensuring refugees are afforded protection and treated equitably in their countries of refuge according to international human rights law.
