Points of Order: [2nd Day] (14 Jul 2016)

Danny Kinahan: ...we have left. Those are the key issues I wanted to raise today. It is right that this House always looks at the place of the United Kingdom in the world. We did not deal with things in Rwanda or Srebrenica, or perhaps early on enough in Syria. We should always take our rightful place in the world, but we should also always follow the wishes of this House.

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism: [1st Allotted Day] (13 Jul 2016)

Thomas Tugendhat: updated with the concept of the Responsibility to Protect that the UN has made so clear over the past few years. It is right that we avoid Iraq, but it is also right that we avoid Rwanda or Srebrenica. The great error of Iraq is that it did exactly the reverse of the right to protect: it put people in greater danger. This did not happen everywhere. The Kurdish communities were often...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jul 2016)

Angus Robertson: I join the Prime Minister and the leader of the Labour party in paying tribute to all the winners at Wimbledon. This week we mark the 21st anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide. As this is one of the few political causes that the Prime Minister and I both wholeheartedly support, I hope he will impress on his successor the importance of supporting the Remembering Srebrenica organisation and...

Iraq Inquiry - Motion to Take Note (12 Jul 2016)

Lord Hunt of Wirral: great superpower, reinventing itself as a world policeman, supported, if one could be conjured up, by a “coalition of the willing”. Compared with the supine failure of the United Nations in Srebrenica in the summer of 1995, of which the noble Lord, Lord Soley, has just reminded us, that decisive, US-led NATO intervention in the Kosovo war seemed to mark an entirely new development....

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2016)

Richard Burden: May I thank the Foreign Secretary for hosting an event at the Foreign Office yesterday evening to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the massacre at Srebrenica? We all listened in silence to the tales told by survivors of the massacre. Will he join me in saying that it is important not only that we remember Srebrenica, but that we redouble our efforts to show future generations where hate...

Report of the Iraq Inquiry - Statement ( 6 Jul 2016)

Earl Howe: .... I am sure that many in this House would agree that there have been times in the recent past when we should have intervened but did not—like in failing to prevent the genocides in Rwanda and Srebrenica. Intervention is hard. War fighting is not always the most difficult part. Often, the state building that follows is a much more complex challenge. We should not be naïve to think that...

Report of the Iraq Inquiry ( 6 Jul 2016)

David Cameron: Syria, as I said in response to the hon. Member for Ilford South (Mike Gapes). This is true, and it is worth mentioning other humanitarian issues, as I did in my statement with respect to Srebrenica and Rwanda.

Srebrenica Genocide (21st Anniversary) (29 Jun 2016)

Srebrenica Genocide (21st Anniversary)

Aleppo ( 3 May 2016)

Jo Cox: ...badly injured. On Friday, desperate doctors in Aleppo appealed for international help to stave off further massacres and the potential besiegement of that city, fearing a repeat of the horrors of Srebrenica. In the light of this, does the Minister agree that it is the Syrian authorities who are primarily responsible for these horrific ongoing abuses, continuing their long-standing policy...

Daesh: Persecution of Christians — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (22 Mar 2016)

Fiona Bruce: ...Secretary have both lamented on the record the international community’s response to previous genocidal suffering. In 2015, the Foreign Secretary said that “the memory of what happened in Srebrenica leaves the international community with obligations that extend well beyond the region…It demands that we all try to understand why those who placed their hope in the international...

Immigration Bill — Report (3rd Day) (Continued) (21 Mar 2016)

Baroness Berridge: ...; what the High Court would be declaring would be a policy of genocide in a particular situation. Since the Second World War, only two situations have merited that declaration: Rwanda and the Srebrenica incident within the Balkans conflict. This is recognised as the crime above all crimes, to be kept special, to be kept unique and with a particular connotation. Although we can prosecute...

Syria ( 1 Mar 2016)

Tobias Ellwood: I will answer just the latter point, for brevity. My hon. Friend is absolutely right, and we pay tribute to the British capability, which I have seen with my own eyes in places such as Srebrenica. It is important that we gain the intelligence that is needed to hold these people to account, so that the verification processes actually take place. That can only be done, as we saw in Ramadi, once...

Scottish Parliament: Holocaust Memorial Day 2016 (26 Jan 2016)

Alasdair Allan: ...where there is less personal risk in challenging prejudice and discrimination. We cannot imagine the trauma of those who lived through the Holocaust or more recent crimes such as the genocide in Srebrenica—indeed, it almost seems impertinent for us to try to imagine what that experience was like. In Nazi Europe or during the wars in the Balkans or elsewhere, challenges to authority would...

Backbench Business — Childhood Obesity Strategy: Holocaust Memorial Day (21 Jan 2016)

Marcus Jones: the Prime Minister’s Holocaust Commission into reality. Today is as much about remembering other genocides as it is about Jewish persecution. This year marks 21 years since the genocide in Srebrenica. It is important to remember the innocent lives lost in the holocaust, in the killing fields of Cambodia, in the churches of Rwanda, in the camps of Bosnia and in the arid desert of...

Syria — Question (12 Jan 2016)

Lord Ashdown of Norton-sub-Hamdon: I am grateful. My Lords, we dropped food to besieged and starving Srebrenica and to besieged and starving Yazidis. If, after Madaya, local forces of whatever nature should block the legal access of UN convoys bringing aid to besieged communities, will the Government with others seriously consider the possibility of dropping food aid to them?

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Child Prisoners and Detainees: Occupied Palestinian Territories ( 6 Jan 2016)

Guto Bebb: I find my hon. Friend’s comments frankly disgraceful in view of the murder of 10,000 people in Srebrenica simply because they were Muslim. To make that comparison is unworthy.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Genocide (16 Dec 2015)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) convicted several of the accused in the Prosecutor v. Popović et al. case for either committing, conspiracy to commit, or aiding and abetting, genocide in and around Srebrenica and Žepa in 1995. These convictions were subsequently upheld by the Appeals Chamber of the ICTY on 30 January 2015. The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC)...

Business of the House: ISIL in Syria ( 2 Dec 2015)

Kevin Foster: ...This Parliament voted to intervene when the murderous thugs of Daesh were on their way to overrun the Kurdish Autonomous Region, which could have resulted in a massacre on the same level as that of Srebrenica. Members of my party—and, to be fair, members of other parties—wanted to do something about that. Some of the arguments we have heard today have been in favour of pulling away the...

Syria: UK Military Action — Motion to Take Note ( 2 Dec 2015)

Baroness Helic: ...seeking—a stable, sovereign Syria, at peace with itself and its neighbours. Like others in this House, I recall the ending of the war in Bosnia, after mass atrocities, mass displacement and the Srebrenica genocide. The person behind many of these crimes, President Milosevic of Serbia, was one of the main signatories of the peace agreement with the full blessing of the international...

Backbench Business: Famagusta (16 Nov 2015)

Bob Stewart: I am the chairman of Remembering Srebrenica, which works on tracing people who went missing in Srebrenica. It is not that difficult to get the DNA off a bone and compare it with a DNA sample taken from a close relative. Those are the two parts of the process, which can be done quite quickly under the auspices of the United Nations.
