Mexico's Security Reform Law - Ley De Seguridad

EDM number 716 in 2017-19, proposed by Dan Carden on 19/12/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Human rights, International politics and government and North America.

That this House expresses deep concerns about the so-called Security Reform Law - Ley de Seguridad, approved by the Mexican Senate on Friday 15 December 2017; notes the concerns of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Justice Mexico Now, Amnesty and other human rights organisations that this law is a mandate for handling unprecedented power to the Mexican armed forces; further notes the concerns that this could perpetuate the long list of human rights violations in Mexico, including extrajudicial executions, torture and enforced disappearances; believes this law will fail to deliver real solutions to Mexico's huge security challenges; further believes that such a transfer of authority to the Mexican armed forces in the run up to next year's Presidential Elections could put democracy in Mexico at risk; and calls on the UK Government to make representations to the Mexican Government to set out its position.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
