Außenminister Dominic Raab sei gebeten worden, wo nötig die Amtsgeschäfte zu übernehmen.
Following the brief detention of Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Iran Rob Macaire, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:
The arrest of our Ambassador in Tehran without grounds or explanation is a flagrant violation of international law. The Iranian government is at a cross-roads moment. It can continue its march towards pariah status with all the political and economic isolation that entails, or take steps to deescalate tensions and engage in a diplomatic path forwards.“
Operation Northmoor was set up by the government in 2014 and looked into 52 alleged illegal killings.
Its closure was announced by the government before Royal Military Police detectives even had a chance to interview the key Afghan witnesses.

Dominic Raab has been branded a „dictator“ as his rivals for the Tory leadership condemned his refusal to rule out shutting down Parliament in order to deliver a no-deal Brexit.
The Queen may reject a Brexiteer Prime Minister’s demand to suspend Parliament to ram through a crash-out from the EU, a Whitehall grandee said today.
Lord Armstrong, who was Margaret Thatcher’s cabinet secretary, said the monarch could decide to consult Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Speaker John Bercow and Lord Speaker Lord Fowler if she believed the Government was asking her to prorogue Parliament to neuter its “rights or duties”.
The race to be the next prime minister has descended into open warfare after the chancellor threatened to join fellow Tories in toppling any leader pursuing a no-deal Brexit.
Philip Hammond’s extraordinary intervention came after Dominic Raab predicted MPs would fail to stop him taking the UK out of the EU without a deal on Halloween night, if he won the contest.
Raab insists he will not ask for a Brexit extension beyond October…
Guido’s co-conspirators have now identified the given allegiances of some 91 Tory MPs, which is 29% of the parliamentary party. Gove and Raab are in front with 14 MPs each, Boris has 13,
Theresa May hasn’t even lost the meaningful vote on her Brexit deal yet.
Former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab has called for MPs to vote down Theresa May’s deal when it goes before the Commons on Tuesday.
Mr Raab, who resigned from the Cabinet in November in protest against Mrs May’s deal, said “Britain can do better” than her Withdrawal Agreement, which he said would “keep us locked into EU laws”.
DOMINIC Raab is now the favourite the replace Theresa May as the PM faces a no-confidence vote over her handling of Brexit.
Last week, I resigned as Brexit Secretary because I could not in good conscience support the proposed deal between the UK and the EU. There is still time to stand up to the bullying tactics from Brussels. But we must change course, or the flame of optimism and opportunity that sparked Brexit will be snuffed out.
(18.11.2018) In Brüssel sind aus Raabs Sicht „dunkle Mächte“ am Werk. So sei ihm von Diplomaten berichtet worden, innerhalb der EU-Kommission werde Nordirland als „Preis“ bezeichnet, den London für den Brexit bezahlen müsse. Das sei „total unverantwortlich und rücksichtslos“, sagte er. Dahinter stecke wohl der deutsche Martin Selmayr, Generalsekretär der EU-Kommission, der in britischen Medien als „Monster von Brüssel“ bekannt ist.
Amid ongoing talk of a plot to replace Mrs May through a confidence vote, one of her ministers said there is still time for „more to be done“ on the Brexit deal, despite an EU summit scheduled for November 25 to confirm it.
Andrea Leadsom, the Brexiteer Commons‘ leader, said she supports the Prime Minister but …
In a special podcast, Laura Kuenssberg explained that she had visited Mr Raab at his south-west London home following his departure, and that the deal had been significantly changed without his knowledge. She said: “Here’s an intriguing thing – what’s been suggested to me is that there’s quite a big difference between the October draft of the withdrawal deal and the bit about the future relationship, and the bit that emerged yesterday.
The British cabinet will meet at 1400 GMT on Wednesday to consider the draft withdrawal agreement after Britain struck a draft divorce deal with the European Union.
THE Conservative Party has erupted into civil war as deep splits in Brexit policy come to the fore.
The timing of the chancellor’s letter will prompt suspicions among Tory Brexiteers, who already believe he is trying to keep the UK closely tied to the EU.
Both Mr Hammond and Mrs Morgan supported Remain at the EU referendum.
The chancellor Philip Hammond reminded his party on Thursday that there would be “large fiscal consequences” of £80bn of extra borrowing. Not one part of this is acceptable. To think otherwise is to live in a demented political la-la land in which fanatical dogma outweighs the jobs, security and life chances of ordinary people.
For weeks, there has been a string of doomsday scenarios in the British news media about what could happen if Prime Minister Theresa May’s negotiators fail to strike an agreement with Brussels.
There has been speculation — floated by think tanks, business lobbies and hospital administrators — a “no-deal Brexit” could create total havoc.
But in trying to prove to his European interlocutors that Britain is prepared for all eventualities, Mr. Raab knows he risks frightening the British public and weakening faith in the Brexit project, which he supports.
Bei der Präsentation des Weißbuchs kam es im Londoner Unterhaus zu tumultartigen Szenen. Oppositionsabgeordnete beschwerten sich am Donnerstag massiv, weil sie im Voraus keine Exemplare des vom neuen Brexit-Minister Dominic Raab präsentierten Dokuments erhalten hatten, die Sitzung musste kurzzeitig unterbrochen werden.
