To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations he has made to the government of Bahrain on the (a) trial and (b) sentence given in relation to Maher al-Khabbaz.
19 June 2018
The UK is firmly opposed to the death penalty. It is the Government's longstanding position to oppose capital sentences in all circumstances and countries. We make this clear to the Government of Bahrain.
We continue to follow the case of Maher al-Khabbaz and, if we have concerns, we raise them at a senior level with the Government of Bahrain.
