Standing up to Tyranny

I blogged recently about my campaign for a House of Commons debate on targeted sanctions against the henchmen who carry out torture and assassination on behalf of tyrants and dictators here.

The motion, inspired by the tragic case of Sergei Magnitsky, was debated yesterday. The motion was supported by 5 ex-Foreign Ministers, and it passed unanimously. The BBC report on the debate here. I have now called for the government to reflect on the will of Parliament, and come forward with some concrete proposals in the next Queen's Speech.
