To ask Her Majesty's Government whether, and if so how, they will support Resolution 511 of the African Union’s African Commission for Human and People’s Rights, which calls on the government of Cameroon to authorise an impartial fact-finding mission to investigate allegations of human rights abuses in the Anglophone regions.

The UK is supportive of the values set out in the African Union's African Commission for Human and People's Rights, and its efforts in promoting the protection of human rights. HMG is working with the Government of Cameroon and international partners, to promote a peaceful resolution to the crisis in the North-West and South-West regions of Cameroon. This includes delivering Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) programming that aims to reduce violations. We continue to regularly raise specific human rights concerns with the Government of Cameroon. We also urge the Government to remain engaged with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
