UK: Next government must keep human rights top of the agenda

Responding to the news that a hung parliament will be returned after the General Election, Kate Allen, Director of Amnesty International United Kingdom Section, said:

“The misguided threats to tamper with our human rights in the name of security just days before the election clearly did not resonate with the public.

“Human rights are a vital cornerstone of our society, and must be protected and promoted both at home and abroad by the next government.

“As the new government is being formed, human rights must remain top of their agenda, and they must carefully protect our values and our freedoms.”
