Orders of the Day — International Criminal Court Bill [Lords] (3 Apr 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...poorest part of that country. We should look more carefully at the reasons for conflict in the first place: the grab for land, minerals or power, which so often leads to injustice and the reigns of terror that result in the death of so many people. There are two specific areas of the Bill that I would like the Minister to deal with when he replies to the debate. The first concerns clause...

International Criminal Court Bill [Lords] (Programme) (No. 2): Consideration and Third Reading (10 May 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., there was no special process for Chile and Cambodia and in many, many cases throughout the world. However serious we are about eliminating the main perpetrators of murder, human rights abuses and terrorism against whole civilian populations, we must acknowledge that the passage of the Bill will not solve all those problems. However, at least it is a step forward and offers a forum in...

International Terrorism (4 Oct 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...anyone from this country to anywhere where they would face the death penalty. The same applies in any other country that has abolished the death penalty. It does not help our cause in opposing any terrorist act if we reduce our own standards and diminish our own laws. We should be careful about how we label organisations. Last week, as I came away from the Muslim welfare centre in my...

Business of the House (25 Oct 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: May I refer the Leader of the House back to the subject of next Thursday's debate—international terrorism? He will fully understand that millions of people in this country are deeply uneasy about the continued bombing of Afghanistan and his confirmation of the reported use of cluster bombs by United States forces in that country? Does he agree that many people in this country find it...

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill (19 Nov 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...those planning or perpetrating criminal acts? Many people are deeply disturbed about this piece of emergency legislation, and believe that it will be no more effective than the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974. Peace eventually came to Ireland through a political process, not a legal process.

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — [1st Allotted Day]: Clause 21 — Suspected international terrorist: certification (21 Nov 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., including the PKK. Does he accept, therefore, that the police will have the powers of sweep and of arrest, even if those people are subsequently released, as many were, under the prevention of terrorism legislation. If the Bill is designed to catch international terrorists individually, why is it not drafted to do so? Why is it drafted to catch people who are merely members of...

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 89 — Searches, examinations and fingerprinting: England and Wales (26 Nov 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...police can have a permanent record on somebody who is wholly innocent of all suspicions, and one then has to ask why any records of any sort are being kept. During the passage of the prevention of terrorism Act, many of us suspected that it was intended more to enable the police to haul people in and keep records on them than to lead to serious prosecutions. Secondly, the report of the...

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill: Clause 21 — Suspected international terrorist: certification (12 Dec 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: No one in the House is in favour of terrorism or terrorist attacks, but many of us believe that the criminal law should be used to apprehend people who commit or who are planning to commit criminal acts. Will the Home Secretary explain why this country, almost alone in Europe, is proposing such draconian measures and derogation from human rights conventions when other countries believe that...

Extradition (19 Dec 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am in good company. I shall be brief. I rise because I was slightly concerned by the fact that when the Minister introduced the regulations, he set them in the context of the current issues of terrorism and the legislation that the House enacted last week—in my view, regrettably—to bring into effect new anti-terrorist measures. It seems that there is a danger of confusing several...

Adjournment (Christmas) (19 Dec 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...fundamental injustice of the treatment of the Palestinian people and the need for an active peace process lie at the heart of much of the world's problems, especially in the context of the war on terrorism. There is a need to end the blanket support and approval of Israel's action and to promote an active peace process. The continuation of the United States campaign against terrorism...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Terrorism (16 Jan 2002)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Prime Minister what recent discussions he has had with President Bush concerning the campaign against terrorism.

Written Answers — Home Department: Anti-terrorism Arrests (16 Jan 2002)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many arrests have been made under the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001.

Orders of the Day — Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill — [2nd Allotted Day]: New Clause 9 — Control of entry to United Kingdom, &c.: use of force (12 Jun 2002)

Jeremy Corbyn: How does the amendment apply to foreign nationals who are detained under the new terrorism legislation, which does not require any rules of evidence to give information to defendants about the reason for their detention?

International Terrorism (Indonesia) (23 Oct 2002)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...militia took over. I do not know the death toll for the period after the referendum, but it ran into thousands. That was in addition to the 200,000 people who died during the period of Indonesian terror in East Timor from 1974. One hopes that East Timor will have a peaceful and prosperous future. East Timor is not the only place in Indonesia where there have been huge problems. I attended...

Adjournment (Christmas) (19 Dec 2002)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Iraq's borders. Since that time, what has been the policy towards Iraq? During the war in 1991, it was to bomb the country using depleted uranium weapons among many others, creating the utmost terror and misery and causing many deaths. That was followed by a sanctions regime, which should have been restricted to military and financial sanctions that could have had some effect on the regime...

International Affairs (27 Nov 2003)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of its people, has in fact resulted in a lot of George Bush's cronies being able to buy up a lot of real estate very cheaply indeed. We need to think about where that will lead. The war on terror declared by George Bush after 11 September 2001 is simplistic in approach. It led us into Afghanistan, where there were 8,000 dead, and it has led us into Iraq, with all the dead there. I suspect...

Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security (25 Feb 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: The right hon. Gentleman is making a most interesting contribution. In relation to all his dealings in Northern Ireland during the 1980s and 1990s, does he think that the prevention of terrorism Act did much to reduce tensions or was it the two ceasefires and the political process that achieved a modicum of peace in Northern Ireland compared with what went before?

Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security (25 Feb 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: To take things slightly further forward, after the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was introduced, about 10,000 people were arrested. Few were charged and hardly any were convicted, but as far as I am aware they were all Irish people, so the Act had a huge effect on the Irish community. I am sure that my hon. Friend has read the briefing that Liberty sent out for the...

Orders of the Day — Identity Cards Bill (20 Dec 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: Since the Home Secretary and others have made a strong case that the introduction of identity cards will somehow or other protect us from terrorism, can he explain exactly how it will do so? Since there is a very narrow gap between official identity and the production of fraudulent identity, what evidence does he have that even biometric recognition itself will not be tampered with, making...

Orders of the Day — Identity Cards Bill (20 Dec 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...that we are being asked to accept some kind of illusion of security. We are told that there are problems in society of high levels of crime, illegal immigration, illegal working, benefit fraud and terrorism, all of which may or may not be true. Nobody from the Home Office or anywhere else, however, has managed to explain how any of those problems will be solved by the introduction of...
