Syria: Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Stephen Doughty: ...) for securing it, and I thank Members on both sides of the House for supporting it at this important time. I spoke in a previous debate on Syria about my experience of visiting Sarajevo and Srebrenica on a cross-party trip with Remembering Srebrenica. One particular thing that sticks in my mind is visiting an exhibition in Sarajevo of photographs of atrocities, of mass graves and of...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Rehman Chishti: One of the darkest stains on the international community’s conscience was the inaction by the EU and the United Nations in preventing the massacre of Muslim men in Srebrenica. International humanitarian and military action was right then. It was right in Bosnia and it is right now to prevent the massacre of innocent people in Syria. We have a moral duty to act.

Syria - Motion to Take Note (29 Mar 2018)

Lord Alton of Liverpool:”, and then fail to put in place a mechanism for doing that. They say, “Perpetrators will pay the price”. They have talked about “the long arm of justice” and give the example of Srebrenica, where 8,000 Bosnian men and youths were massacred. Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, who worked at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia between 1998 and 2006 and led the...

Scottish Parliament: Holodomor Remembrance Day 2018 (20 Mar 2018)

Clare Adamson: ...’s breaking the silence gallery has exhibitions commemorating, remembering and informing people about the genocides of the world, and to my surprise the Holodomor was included, along with Rwanda, Srebrenica, the Holocaust and others. I was surprised because I was unaware that Canada had recognised the Holodomor as a genocide—something that I think this country should do as well. The...

Hate Crime - Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Lord Young of Cookham: the Anti-Muslim Hatred Working Group and its achievements. We have also funded Tell MAMA, which I mentioned a few moments ago, with £1.9 million. We are putting £1.2 million into Remembering Srebrenica and we are putting £2.4 million over three years into the security of all faith establishments, including mosques. There are a number of other initiatives, including £900,000 to...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Genocide ( 9 Mar 2018)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...process. A recent example was in November 2017, when the Trial Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia convicted Ratko Mladić of genocide for his role in the Srebrenica massacre. The UK position is clear that there must be no impunity for the most serious international crimes.

Syria: De-Escalation Zones (26 Feb 2018)

Rehman Chishti: I welcome the Foreign Secretary’s statement. In 1995, in relation to the Srebrenica massacre and genocide, the international community authorised international humanitarian military action. Will he clarify whether a similar threshold has now been met in relation to taking action in Syria? If so, it is now for the international community to decide whether or not it wants to take that...

Scottish Parliament: Holocaust Memorial Day (25 Jan 2018)

Bill Kidd: ...earlier that the Deputy First Minister was deeply affected by his recent visit to Auschwitz with 200 Scottish school pupils. Colleagues from across the chamber have been moved by their visits to Srebrenica and to other sites of genocide and persecution across the world. Such terrible atrocities remind us of man’s inhumanity to man, but those who have been lost to us will never be...

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day (18 Jan 2018)

Rishi Sunak: ...of prejudice, hatred and dictatorship ultimately leads. In truth, the words so often associated with the holocaust —“never again”—have too often proved false. Whether in the tragedies of Srebrenica or Rwanda, the violence that stems from prejudice has never truly left us. Sadly, as we heard today, that prejudice is still prevalent. A comprehensive survey by the Institute for Jewish...

Scottish Parliament: Holocaust Memorial Day 2018 (10 Jan 2018)

Johann Lamont: ...people being described in the cruellest terms. Genocide is a long journey: it is a journey that we, in our modern society, have the power to break. I am privileged to be a member of Remembering Srebrenica Scotland—I declare an interest as a board member of that organisation. In 2016, I was invited to visit Bosnia, and later that year I went on holiday to Krakow and visited Auschwitz. I...

Ukraine — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Dec 2017)

Pauline Latham: ...initiating an inquiry or judicial process to help ensure the Ukrainian holodomor is given its rightful status as a genocide? I understand that the 1994 killings in Rwanda and the 1995 massacre in Srebrenica were both recognised as genocides as a result of legal proceedings. It is only right that the UK accepts the definition of the Ukrainian holodomor as a genocide. It would be a mark of...

Backbench Business: Rohingya Crisis — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Mark Field: ...much aware, as we should all be in the international community, that we are faced with a set of problems, and one could argue that they are not dissimilar to what happened in Rwanda, Sri Lanka and Srebrenica, and at various other times. The international community needs to be able to come together, but it needs to do that in a united way, and the only way to do that is through the United...

UK Defence Forces - Motion to Take Note (23 Nov 2017)

the Earl of Sandwich: a superb job during emergencies. Secondly, it is surely part of the training of our Armed Forces that they are called upon and carry a degree of responsibility when an emergency occurs. With Srebrenica in the news again this week, my mind often goes back to our commitments in the western Balkans and the tireless work done by our soldiers in rapidly erecting refugee camps for ethnic...

Srebrenica (23 Nov 2017)


4. 90-second Statements (22 Nov 2017)

David Melding: .... He was sentenced to life imprisonment. Some of us have campaigned from the sidelines in the pursuit of international justice, but for those who lost husbands and sons 20 years ago, during the Srebrenica massacre and other war crimes, the wounds are still very fresh. One woman lost her husband and both sons at Srebrenica. She said, 'We have been sentenced without a trial. Our children...

Scottish Parliament: Prejudice-based Bullying and Harassment in Schools, and Personal and Social Education (15 Nov 2017)

Johann Lamont: education can sort out all those problems for us. I know, from my working life, that St Andrew’s First Aid, the British Heart Foundation and—particularly dear to my heart—Remembering Srebrenica Scotland all want to go into schools and work with PSE teachers. Many organisations recognise the opportunity that school affords to send out the messages that we want to get across. We...

Ukrainian Holodomor — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] ( 7 Nov 2017)

Alistair Burt: .... Our approach has guided successive UK Governments in relation to other atrocities. The decisions to recognise as genocides the holocaust, the 1994 killings in Rwanda, and the 1995 massacre in Srebrenica came about only following judgments by appropriate courts in line with the definition set out in international law. Having been to Rwanda and Srebrenica and seen the after-effects, and...

Burma: Rohingya - Question for Short Debate (26 Oct 2017)

Baroness Helic: ...and, sadly, a muted response from Aung San Suu Kyi. I was born in a country where, in the course of one weekend and under the noses of the UN peacekeepers, 8,500 men and boys were slaughtered in Srebrenica in 1995. The term “ethnic cleansing” was born in Bosnia to describe policies designed to purge a land of part of its population through murder, expulsion and rape, fuelled by an...

Petition - the Rohingya in Myanmar (14 Sep 2017)

Eleanor Smith: ...further to send emergency aid to all victims and refugees in neighbouring countries, especially Bangladesh; further that it is time for the Foreign Minister to ensure that there is not a repeat of Srebrenica or Rwanda. The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to issue an urgent statement calling for an immediate end to all violence in Myanmar; and...

Violence in Rakhine State ( 5 Sep 2017)

Yasmin Qureshi: ..., by gathering their bodies up and burning them. This is one of the worst outbreaks of violence in decades, yet the international community is, in effect, remaining silent as we watch another Srebrenica and Rwanda unfold before our eyes. Does the Minister agree that the situation requires urgent intervention? What concrete action have the Government and the Prime Minister taken to date to...
