HC Deb 09 March 1993 vol 220 c480W
Mr. Meacher

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations Her Majesty's Government made to the Government of Zaire concerning human rights.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

We are gravely concerned about the widespread abuses of human rights in Zaire, caused notably by the lack of control of the security forces. We intend to support a resolution at the current session of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights deploring the continued serious violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms in Zaire.
