We continue to follow the case of Nabeel Rajab closely and have raised it at a senior level with the Government of Bahrain. We encourage those with concerns about their treatment in detention to report these to the appropriate human rights oversight bodies. We encourage the oversight bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations into any such complaints.
