I’ve signed Early Day Motion (EDM) 1607, tabled by Nadia Whittome MP.
The EDM notes the ongoing, grave human rights violations in Manipur, India. This includes acts of sexual violence, extrajudicial killings, home destruction, forced displacement, torture and ill-treatment, predominantly targeting the Kuki-Zo people, a tribal community who are largely Christian.
We call on the Government to raise the issue of human rights violations in Manipur with the Indian government and to halt negotiations towards a UK-India free trade agreement while such violations continue to occur.
