Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs
Andrew Love (Edmonton, Labour)
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 Peoples Redemption Army suspects will only be released if they apply for amnesty; and if she will make a statement.
Ian McCartney (Minister of State (Trade & Investment), Department of Trade and Industry; Makerfield, Labour)
We continue to raise our wider concerns about the continued detention of the Peoples 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
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.
