For immediate release: Mon July 13, 2015

PM must provide answers on UK’s part in US secret drone war
 
Responding to the British Prime Minister’s call today for increased spending on drones, Kat Craig, legal director at international human rights organisation Reprieve said:
 
“If the Prime Minister is going to call for more spending on drones, he needs to give us some answers on how they are being used.  There is overwhelming evidence that the UK is closely involved in the US’ secret drone war, which risks turning the whole world into a battlefield.  Yet ministers have never once answered questions from Parliament or the public on the role Britain plays.  Drone technology has enabled a vast expansion of secret bombing campaigns which take place without the knowledge or approval of the public.  We need a full debate on these sinister aspects of this new technology before we go any further down this road.”
 
ENDS
