Early day motion 1577

Main content

Follow this EDM by:


That this House expresses concern that the Government may be considering diluting laws relating to the arrest of alleged war criminals and torturers entering or residing in the UK; notes that no good reason has been given to alter the status quo and that the current system wherein a judge makes a decision whether to grant an arrest warrant has worked satisfactorily to date; further notes that such arrest warrants have been issued very infrequently and that this would indicate that the granting of them is taken very seriously indeed by the judiciary which is a safeguard against frivolous applications; calls upon the Government to uphold the UK's duty and right to arrest and prosecute alleged war crimes suspects if they arrive on or reside in its territory and to fund the police and immigration authorities adequately to enable such arrests to be made so that this country cannot be regarded as a safe haven for such persons.
