To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the trial in Bahrain of Sayed Nizar Alwadaei which resulted in an additional three-year prison sentence on 29 November; and whether representatives of the UK Government attended his trial.
12 December 2017
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and our Embassy in Bahrain continue to monitor this case and we have raised it with the Government of Bahrain. British officials regularly attend the hearings of high profile cases in which we have an interest. We understand there is a right of appeal to this sentence.
