To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what assessment he has made of the Chilean Government’s response to protests in that country.
27 January 2020
The British Government noted with concern the recent violence in Chile and welcomed its decline. We also welcome the Chilean Government's public assurances, throughout the protests, that allegations of human rights abuses will be investigated fully, and that, if appropriate, perpetrators will be prosecuted. Our Embassy in Santiago is in contact with the Chilean authorities, and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.
