HL Deb 04 November 2002 vol 640 c75WA
Lord Lamont of Lerwick

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What concerns they have expressed to General Musharraf about human rights in Pakistan; and when was the last occasion these were specifically mentioned.[HL6196]

Baroness Amos:

Together with our EU partners, we regularly raise our concerns on human rights with the Pakistani authorities. Most recently, on 15 July my honourable friend Mr O'Brien, the Minister responsible for our relations with Pakistan, made clear to the Pakistani High Commissioner in London our concerns about the situation of Christians and Ahmadis in Pakistan and our opposition to the death penalty. We are now considering the elements of a further EU demarche with partners on human rights abuses in Pakistan.
