Central African Republic: Politics and Government

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL4749, tabled on 18 January 2017

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the current security situation in the Central African Republic.

Answered on

1 February 2017

​Despite encouraging political advances in the Central African Republic (CAR) in 2016, the security situation remains of grave concern. It is particularly bad outside the capital Bangui, where violence, looting and human rights abuses continue to occur with impunity with recent reports indicating that the violence has grown more severe since September 2016. We continue to advise against all travel to CAR.
