‚ÄčI refer the honourable gentleman to the answer I gave to question 139036. We encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to report these to the appropriate oversight body. We urge these oversight bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations into any such claims. We understand that the National Institution for Human Rights is aware of this case and is monitoring the situation, and that the Ombudsman of the Ministry of the Interior is also investigating the claims and has been in touch with Ms Mansoor. We have raised the case with the Government of Bahrain at a senior level and continue to monitor the situation.
