To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations he has made to his Chilean counterpart on the number of minors arrested during the ongoing protests in Chile.
The British Government is concerned by events that have occurred in Chile in recent days, including reports of the arrest of minors by security forces. We welcome that the Chilean Government has invited the UN Human Rights Commissioner and Human Rights Watch to send investigatory teams, and that the Justice Minister and public prosecutors have made clear that members of the security forces will not be immune from any investigations or prosecutions. Our Embassy in Santiago is in contact with the Chilean authorities, and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.
