Motion text

That this House notes with concern that Dr Kiiza Besigye, President of the Forum for Democratic Change, was arrested by the Ugandan government in Kampala on 14th November, during a nationwide tour in which he was receiving substantial support; observes that many Ugandans believe this move to have been politically motivated in the run-up to next year's presidential elections; calls upon the Ugandan government to release Dr Besigye and to allow free and fair elections to take place in 2006; and calls upon the UK Government to use its best endeavours to ensure that democracy and the rule of law are respected within this valued member of the Commonwealth.
