Lord Alton of Liverpool asked Her Majesty’s Government:
- What assessment they have made of atrocities in the Congo in the last two years; whether the level and nature of these atrocities constitute genocide or crimes against humanity; and what initiatives they have taken to raise the situation in the Congo at an international level.[HL4752]
Baroness Scotland of Asthal: We strongly condemn all acts of violence committed by both sides in the conflict in DRC. We regularly raise these issues with all parties and in United Nations Security Council Resolution 1291 have urged an international investigation into all such events with a view to bringing all those responsible to justice.
