§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with the Ugandan authorities in respect of the state commission on the activities of Idi Amin when president; and if he will make a statement.718W
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
We are not aware of a commission specifically to look into the activities of former President Amin. The Ugandan Government have, however, set up a human rights commission to investigate human rights abuses which occurred prior to President Museveni coming to power in 1986. We welcome this in the context of Uganda's commitment to upholding better human rights standards; its record in this respect is recently much improved.
