Bosnia and Herzegovina - Commons Urgent Question (10 Nov 2021)

Lord Cormack: ...he has, perhaps liaising with my noble friend Lady Helic, who knows more about this than the rest of us put together, to do what they can collectively to impress that we must never have another Srebrenica? That was a stain on Europe. I have not discussed it with her, but I think my noble friend Lady Helic would be well placed to give my noble friend every help and advice that he needs.

Recognition of Armenian Genocide ( 9 Nov 2021)

Tim Loughton: ...genocide and, since 2001, we have commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day, applied to all holocausts.

The Srebrenica massacre of 1995 has been recognised as genocide by the International Criminal Tribunal, and there are others. However, the UK has yet to recognise the Armenian genocide, despite...

Bosnia and Herzegovina ( 9 Nov 2021)

Alison Thewliss: Remembering Srebrenica tweeted earlier that this day in 1993 saw the destruction of the historic bridge in Mostar, a poignant reminder of the conflict and genocide in living memory. Our thoughts should very much be with the people who live there and who fear a return to the types of horrors they saw in the past. What steps will the Minister take to ensure that the UK plays its part in...

We continue to support the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals' work. The FCDO Minister for the...

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill (12 Jul 2021)

Charlotte Nichols: ...of guaranteeing platforms for holocaust deniers, will they now come up with an official list of what hate speech is protected and what is not? Will their hierarchy of hatred allow denial of the Srebrenica genocide, the 26th anniversary of which was yesterday, or will they accept that giving fascists the legal protection to demand restitution from the courts is a terrible idea? Fascists...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 7 Jul 2021)

Finally, before I move on, this is also Srebrenica Memorial Week. We should remember those who have suffered genocide, whether in Bosnia, the holocaust, Rwanda or in many other places. Perhaps the Prime Minister will meet me to discuss how...

Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (17 Jun 2021)

Maria Miller: ...of sexual violence as a weapon of war is always unacceptable. The Conservative party’s work on preventing sexual violence in armed conflict was born of the tragedy of Darfur and the survivors of Srebrenica. It is a tragedy that today, 12 years on, and despite that leadership, events like these are still happening in places such as Ethiopia. Hon. Members are right to say that debates such...

Written Ministerial Statements — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Update on the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (13 May 2021)

Human Rights: Xinjiang (22 Apr 2021)

Tim Loughton: ...go hand in hand. It is a shocking reality that genocides have never properly been called out and thwarted at the time that they happen—genocides against the Jews, genocides against the Muslims in Srebrenica, genocides in Rwanda, Cambodia and Darfur, and the many other genocides that go unnamed and are not properly detected, as the hon. Member for Bolton South East (Yasmin Qureshi)...

Trade Bill - Commons Reason: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (23 Mar 2021)

Lord Cormack: ...’s purges began just before my lifetime and continued through. We saw terrible things happen in China under Mao Tse-Tung, and we have seen many others, in Rwanda and Bosnia—who can ever forget Srebrenica?—and with Pol Pot, as a noble Lord interjects from the back. It is a challenge to democracy to repudiate evil. Although one may have to pay a price, which may be to lose a lucrative...

Trade Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (23 Feb 2021)

Lord Cormack: .... I begin with a tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Alton. He has received many and deserved them all. He and I first became associated when drawing attention to and deploring genocide at the time of Srebrenica, in the other place. We both spoke on it, deploring the lack of response from the international community. It was not only genocide but an international scandal. Today we are offered...

Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart)—I believe you were on that trip, Mr Deputy Speaker—and we saw for ourselves the legacy of that terrible conflict in our own...

Trade Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) ( 2 Feb 2021)

Lord Blencathra: ...a country was profiting by murdering its own people? Thus I submit that the evil of genocide must take precedence over free trade. My final point is that this is a moral issue. In July 1995, in the Srebrenica massacre that took place in Bosnia, 8,000 men, women and children were slaughtered. Nearly every country in the world calls it a genocide, but it is not genocide as far as the United...
