To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon on 18 June (HL8316), what was the exact date on which they last discussed the case of inmate Dr Abduljalil Al-Singace with authorities in Bahrain; and what was the outcome of that discussion.
4 July 2018
We have raised this case at a senior level and will continue to do so. The UK has a continuing dialogue with the Government of Bahrain in which we raise individual cases.
The UK encourages those with concerns about treatment in detention to report these to the relevant human rights oversight bodies. We urge these bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations. The UK continues to encourage the Government of Bahrain to deliver on its international and domestic human rights commitments.
