Bahrain: Political Prisoners

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL7182, tabled on 23 April 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of Bahrain regarding the use of citizenship revocation and statelessness as a punitive measure against political prisoners in Bahrain, in the light of reports that more than 600 Bahraini nationals have had their citizenship revoked since 2012.

The UK has concerns about the revocation of nationality when it renders individuals stateless. We have raised this issue at a senior level with the Government of Bahrain.
