Illegal Drone Strikes Condemned In Landslide Vote By European Politicians
Aktion Freiheit statt Angst welcomes that the EU Parlament has voted with 534 to 49 to condem targeted killings by drones. It is the first time that the parlament positiioned itself very clear against targeted killings. Unlikely they were not able to condem the use of weaponized drones as well.
The European Parliament voted by a majority of 534 to 49 MEPs to support a resolution demanding that EU Member States “do not perpetrate unlawful targeted killings or facilitate such killings by other states”, and calling on them to “oppose and ban practices of extra judicial targeted killings.”
Green MEP and chair of the Parliament's sub-committee on human rights Barbara Lochbihler said: "The European Parliament has today raised serious concerns with the use of military drones and the deaths of thousands of civilians resulting from drone strikes.
So UK and Germany will now come under increased pressure to disclose their involvement and tacit condoning of the US drone programme, which both have resisted citing national security concerns.
