HL Deb 09 January 1995 vol 560 cc1-2WA
Lord Hylton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What information they have about: (a) Bosnian Muslims from Sanja and Bijeljina obliged to dig trenches by the Serb Army and currently used as human shields; (b) Bosnians of military age from Brcko, Bijeljina and Doboj interned in camps at Batkovic, Mackovic/Lopare and Suho Polje/Ugljevik; whether these situations are in breach of international law, and what is being done to bring them to an end.

Baroness Chalker of Wallasey

We are aware of these disturbing reports. We condemn all such acts which are in clear breach of international law. Those responsible must be held accountable to the International Tribunal established by the UN, whose efforts to secure convictions we fully support.
