UN Convention On The Prevention And Punishment Of Genocide

EDM number 1192 in 2015-16, proposed by Robert Flello on 02/03/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Ethnic groups, Human rights, Middle East, Racial discrimination, Religion and faith communities, Religious discrimination and United Nations.

That this House welcomes the recent resolution of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the recent motion of the European Parliament which each identifies the slaughter by Daesh of Christians and other minorities in Syria and Iraq as the genocide that it is; notes the recent statements by Hillary Clinton, by leading Republican contenders for the US Presidency, and by His Holiness Pope Francis that the targeting of these communities is genocide; observes that an amendment was recently proposed to the Immigration Bill in the House of Lords to place upon the Government a duty to act to protect vulnerable individuals from genocide, and looks forward to that amendment being moved again at a future stage of the Bill; reminds the Prime Minister of the UK's duties under the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of genocide to act both directly and with others to bring this killing to an end and to bring its perpetrators to trial and punishment; expresses its frustration at the reluctance of Ministers to present evidence and to work to create a consensus at the UN that the killing is genocide; and observes that such inaction risks bringing shame on our nation and risks bringing the reputation of the Government into international disrepute.

This motion has been signed by a total of 43 MPs.
