To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, how many charges of (a) genocide and (b) war crimes have been brought against British citizens who have returned to the UK having fought for Daesh.
To date, no British Citizens have been charged in the UK with war crimes or genocide in relation to Daesh activities. However a number of convictions have been made in the UK for cases linked to the Syrian conflict and Daesh activities in the region. Furthermore, on 14 August 2017, the Government of Iraq wrote to the UN Secretary General, requesting support to hold Daesh accountable for their crimes. The UK is working with the UN Security Council to deliver this support.
