​We have raised the case of Dr Al Singace with the Bahraini authorities at a senior level and continue to closely monitor the case. The UK encourages those with concerns about treatment in detention to report these to the relevant human rights oversight bodies. We urge those 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.
