​We encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to report these to the appropriate oversight body in Bahrain. 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 and the Ministry of Interior Ombudsman are aware of this case and are monitoring the situation, and have been in touch with Ms Mansoor. We have raised the case with the Government of Bahrain and continue to monitor the situation.
