Islamic State

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL7194, tabled on 21 March 2016

To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the remarks of the Minister of State for the Department for International Development, Mr Desmond Swayne, on 16 March (HC Deb, col 937), whether it is their assessment that the International Criminal Court has not ruled out the possibility that violence against minorities in the Middle East perpetrated by Daesh is genocide.

I refer you to the press statement made by the International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor on 8 April 2015, setting out her views on the ICC investigating Daesh.
