Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL9606, tabled on 17 July 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to Written Answer by Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon on 16 April (HL6839), what assessments have since been made on the ability of Bahraini human rights defender, Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei, to continue his work in the UK given the recent threats and reprisals facing his imprisoned mother-in-law, Hajer Mansoor Hassan.

We have received assurances from the Bahraini authorities that there have been no reprisals against the family members of Sayed Alwadaei. We understand that he has been able to continue his work in the UK.

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.
