Amnesty International Human Rights Report: "Britain Will Be Judged Harshly by History"

April 24, 2024 (EIRNS)—One day after the U.S. State Department released its annual Human Rights Report, Amnesty International released its own assessment. Sacha Deshmukh, leader of Amnesty’s London office, spoke at the press event to release the report on April 23. Deshmukh said that, “Britain will be judged harshly by history for its failure to help prevent the civilian slaughter in Gaza.” Britain “deliberately destabilized” human rights to further its own political agenda, she added, noting that Britain could have used its leadership role to curtail the killing, but instead continued to arm Israel and escalate this and other conflicts.

Deshmukh continued that the U.K.’s domestic policy targets asylum seekers, migrants, and protesters, and chipped-away at the freedom of assembly and expression. The UK’s Illegal Migrant Act is in violation of the UN Convention on Refugees and the EU Convention on Human Rights.
