House of Commons
PROPOSED VISIT OF SAUDI CROWN PRINCE TO THE UK
EDM #865
Tabled 25 January 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House regrets the Prime Minister's invitation to Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman of Saudi Arabia to visit the UK; notes that, as Minister of Defense, Mohammed bin Salman was widely associated with curtailing human rights, and that it was his decision to lead Saudi Arabia into war in Yemen, acknowledged by the UN as one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world, resulting in the killing of over 5000 civilians, widespread starvation and the bombing of schools and hospitals; further notes that of 142 executions conducted in Saudi Arabia during 2017, 70 per cent were carried out after Mohammad bin Salman came to power as Crown Prince, the prominent role he plays in the blockade on Qatar and supporting the repressive regime in Bahrain; and therefore urges the Prime Minister to withdraw the invitation to Mohammad bin Salman at this time.
