Crimes Against Humanity

Volume 480: debated on Thursday 16 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people suspected of (a) war crimes, (b) crimes against humanity and (c) genocide are estimated to be present in the UK; and if she will make a statement. (224628)

The Home Office does not collate data on the total numbers in the UK who are suspected of these crimes. Certain applicants to the UK Border Agency are screened for involvement in war crimes, crimes against humanity or genocide. Figures on the numbers considered by the War Crimes Team are provided in response to question 224629, Official Report, column 1072W, although these are based only on applicants to UKBA and are not directly indicative of the numbers of suspects estimated to be present in the UK.
