‚ÄčAs stated in my answer to question HL6169, the Government works with a number of implementation partners and beneficiaries to support Bahraini-led reform. These programmes aim to support progress on building effective and accountable institutions, strengthening the rule of law, and justice reform. All of our work is in line with international standards, and aims to share the UK's expertise and experience. Any training provided by, on or behalf of, the British Government fully complies with our domestic and international human rights obligations. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has provided updates on its programmes in its annual Human Rights reports, as well as through Freedom of Information Act requests.
