The British Government strongly supports the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and is working with partners on how best to work within the Council and beyond to ensure attention to Sudan's human rights situation. We welcome the African Union's commitment to a commission of inquiry into the events of 3 June. The UK supports the use of evidence gathered by brave witnesses and victims of brutality to ensure that accountability for serious abuses, which is vital, is delivered.
