UK Foreign Secretary William Hague said the government was "determined to pursue every opportunity to promote human rights and political and economic freedom around the world".
"Britain welcomes visitors from around the world…but not those who have perpetrated human rights abuses. Foreign nationals from outside the European Economic Area may only come to the UK if they satisfy the requirements of the Immigration Rules. Where there is independent, reliable and credible evidence that an individual has committed human rights abuses, the individual will not normally be permitted to enter the UK," the rule said.
