The UK has a continuing dialogue with the Government of Bahrain, in which we are able to raise individual cases at a senior level, including the referenced cases.

We encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to report these to the relevant human rights oversight bodies. We urge these bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations. The UK continues to encourage the Government of Bahrain to deliver on its international and domestic human rights commitments.
