We continue to closely monitor the case of Nabeel Rajab and have frequently raised it with the Bahraini Government at the highest levels. Where we have concerns we will continue to raise them at an appropriate level with the Government of Bahrain. We encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to report these to the relevant human rights oversight bodies

The UK continues to encourage the Government of Bahrain to deliver on its international and domestic human rights commitments.
