We encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to report these to the appropriate oversight body. We also encourage these oversight bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations into any such claim.

Officials from the British Embassy in Bahrain have been present at court hearings for Najah Ahmed Yousif. We will continue to monitor this case closely.
