Daily Record - - INFO -

IN­TER­NA­TIONAL groups funded by the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment have been asked to give as­sur­ances over their poli­cies to pro­tect the vul­ner­a­ble.

In­ter­na­tional Devel­op­ment Min­is­ter Alas­dair Al­lan has writ­ten to non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tions work­ing abroad, say­ing: “The Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment ex­pect the high­est moral and eth­i­cal stan­dards from those we fund to pro­vide ser­vices to those peo­ple and com­mu­ni­ties who look to our sup­port.

“We will not tol­er­ate any form of hu­man rights abuses or mis­con­duct, wher­ever they take place.”
