To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, with reference to Human Rights and Democracy: the 2022 Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office report, published on 13 July 2022, CP 886, for what reason there are no references to (a) Cameroon, (b) Burkina Faso and (c) Eswatini in that report.
HRPCs are countries which either have particular challenges or are on a negative or positive trajectory, and where we consider that the UK can make a real difference. However, as always, our human rights work goes far beyond this.
An absence of references to any particular country does not reflect the level of scrutiny the FCDO places on human rights there. We remain committed to the promotion of human rights across the globe.
