Categorised under the topics of Africa, Human rights, International politics and government and Security industry.

That this House expresses its concern at recent reports that the Department for International Development is considering tenders to train security forces in the Somali region of Ogaden, which include the Liyu police who, according to Amnesty International, have been implicated in serious human rights abuses against civilians, including extrajudicial killings, rape, torture and the destruction of villages; and calls on the Secretary of State for International Development to halt this expenditure of up to 15 million and meet with representatives of the Ogaden community in Britain to hear their anxieties about this proposed programme.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
