BHRC joins calls for UK to rejoin EU Genocide Network

Home » Posts » BHRC joins calls for UK to rejoin EU Genocide Network

BHRC has joined other human rights organisations in writing to the UK Home Secretary Theresa May to call for the UK to rejoin the EU Genocide Network. The UK was a founding member of the network set up to ensure a close cooperation between states in investigating and prosecuting the crime of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. Such a direct role is necessary if the UK is to implement its commitments to fighting impunity for grave international crimes.
