Rohingya Refugee Crisis (20 Dec 2018)

Paul Scully: ...see struggling at the moment, he made the case that of the seven or eight conditions that one can ascribe to genocide, Burma was the only conflict post-war that matched every single one. Rwanda and Srebrenica matched some of them, but Burma matched every single one. Now we can see the past masters of this heinous crime are using all those instruments time and time again. It is time that we...

Reconciliation: Role of British Foreign, Defence and International Development Policy - Motion to Take Note (14 Dec 2018)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: ...a combination of these three and others. A good example is the western Balkans during and after the bloody wars of the 1990s. Think of the horror of the massacre of 7,000 or 8,000 Muslim men at Srebrenica. The three departments had been involved in seeking solutions to these conflicts, mostly in coalition with the European Union and, as the noble Lord, Lord Hannay, has said, with the...

Scottish Parliament: Violence against Women (27 Nov 2018)

Clare Adamson: ...recognise all those things. We have also talked about financial abuse, coercive control, and human trafficking. Maurice Corry talked about rape as a weapon: I know that Kezia Dugdale has visited Srebrenica, in that context. The Holodomor is an example of starvation being used as a weapon and as violence against women and children in the Ukraine. We have to recognise all those things and to...

Religious Intolerance and Prejudice - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2018)

Lord Cormack: being fundamentally opposed to anti-Semitism is okay. I was also one of those who spoke out in the other place, when neither Front Bench would do so, against the atrocities in Bosnia, and Srebrenica in particular. It is right that we should commemorate and remember these things, but we must also have regard to where it is best to do so. I have to say to my noble friend Lord Pickles that...

Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity - Question for Short Debate (13 Sep 2018)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...: in other words, it can go outside the state parties and deal with crimes committed elsewhere. As the noble Lord, Lord Hannay, pointed out from his own unhappy experiences involving Rwanda and Srebrenica, this is insufficient and unsatisfactory. I agree with him that it is important to try to extend the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court beyond what happens in the territory...

Burma: Humanitarian Situation (13 Sep 2018)

Catherine West: ...Sadiq was torn from her arms and thrown into the fire. The 20th century has witnessed, time and again, assaults on the human race and communities, from the holocaust, to Rwanda, to Cambodia, to Srebrenica, to Halabja in Iraq—an attack against the Kurds. The next chapter of that woeful saga is unfolding in front of our very eyes, in a country that was globally looked on with such hope as...

Anti-Semitism - Question for Short Debate (13 Sep 2018)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...politics, and I, too, will say something about the importance of education and more broadly about Holocaust denial. In the last 10 days, I have returned from Bosnia-Herzegovina. I travelled to Srebrenica, which, as I have said to people, was both a harrowing and awe-inspiring thing to do. I met some truly extraordinary people there. It is extraordinary that such a thing could happen in a...

Idlib (10 Sep 2018)

Alistair Burt: ..., for me to say what the process will be and that it will be swift and so on, but I do not believe I can say that. Look how long it has taken for there to be accountability for serious crimes at Srebrenica. It depends on the gathering of evidence, and it depends on the willingness of authorities to take part and the willingness of the agencies to bring forward those within their own...

Syria (24 Jul 2018)

Kevin Foster: ...civil war. What reassurances can my right hon. Friend give me that, as rebel forces and refugees are driven towards Idlib, work will be done to ensure that we do not see that city become another Srebrenica?

Written Ministerial Statements — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: UK Support and Funding for International Criminal Justice (17 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Hunt: ...of the atrocities committed during the Balkans conflicts. One of its last acts was the conviction and sentencing of former Bosnian Serb military leader Ratko Mladiċ to life imprisonment for the Srebrenica genocide and other serious crimes during the 1992-1995 conflict in Bosnia. Any outstanding work of the ICTY will now pass to the Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals (MICT),...

Foreign Affairs Committee (12 Jul 2018)

Mike Gapes: ...ethnic tensions, leading to some of the worst violence against civilian non-combatants in Europe since world war two. This culminated in atrocities such as the siege of Sarajevo and the massacre at Srebrenica, which began 23 years ago yesterday and which many of us have been remembering and commemorating at events this week. In total, more than 100,000 people were killed in the region...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Emily Thornberry: ...I am afraid that I am not going to be watching it. It will be the only game that I have missed, but I will be representing the Labour party at tonight’s memorial event for the anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide—something very close to my heart, given my father’s role in trying to prevent it. Let me wish Gareth Southgate and the England team the best of luck for this match and...

Western Balkans Summit - Question ( 4 Jul 2018)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: My Lords, next week sees not only the Western Balkans Summit but the 23rd anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide. Does the Minister consider it wholly unacceptable, and a barrier to lasting peace and reconciliation, that there are people, possibly some who may even attend the summit, who still deny that genocide? How do the Government intend to challenge those who are vocal in their denial?

Scottish Parliament: World Refugee Day (21 Jun 2018)

Kezia Dugdale: ...working in this building. Looking around the chamber, I see many people who have travelled to Bosnia, including Gail Ross and James Dornan. With others, they have had the privilege of travelling to Srebrenica with Remembering Srebrenica Scotland. As Alex Cole-Hamilton said, we should be careful not to pat ourselves too cleverly on the back about our contribution overseas, because those who...

Scottish Parliament: Hate Crime Legislation: Bracadale Review ( 7 Jun 2018)

John Finnie: engage in debate, because I think that that will be a positive contribution. This is a fast-moving situation, as ever. Deputy Chief Constable Iain Livingstone talked today about returning from Srebrenica and wanting to put into practice for Police Scotland the lessons that he learned from his visit there. Earlier, in a question on the ministerial statement on the miners’ strike, I...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (29 May 2018)

Kenneth Macintosh: Good afternoon. Our first item of business today is time for reflection. Our time for reflection leader is the Very Rev Dr Lorna Hood OBE, chair of Remembering Srebrenica Scotland.

UK and the Western Balkans (IRC Report) - Motion to Take Note (24 May 2018)

Lord Hannay of Chiswick: ...divides parties in any way; it is an issue that unites us all and it is a discussion, therefore, about method and process, not about objective. That is very valuable. I, too, recall the massacre at Srebrenica. I was the Government’s representative on the UN Security Council at the time, and I have to say that it was not our proudest hour. But that is behind us, and we must ensure that it...

Scottish Parliament: Nakba 70th Anniversary (15 May 2018)

James Dornan: ...through similar things, such as Uganda and South Sudan. I have also been to Serbia, where I met Syrian refugees—obviously, there are connections there with the Bosnian conflict. I am going to Srebrenica shortly. When I go to such places, I wonder how people can get into a position where such things can happen. People cannot get into that position if they see the other people as being the...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Bosnia and Herzegovina: Genocide ( 1 May 2018)

Tom Brake: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether leaders from the Western Balkans countries who have denied that the Srebrenica massacre was an act of genocide will be attending the Western Balkans summit in the UK in July.

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Maria Caulfield: ..., unless we learn the lessons of history, we are doomed to repeat them. It is no coincidence that not just in the holocaust but in multiple genocides that have happened since, such as Rwanda and Srebrenica, and what is happening with the Rohingya and Yazidi peoples now, there is a cycle of behaviour and a pattern of events that warn us that more is to come. If we facilitate anti-Semitism,...
