To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether his Department is having discussions with the Bahraini Government on seeking the release of Hassan Mushaima on a humanitarian basis; and if he will make a statement.
11 September 2018
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and our Embassy in Bahrain have raised the case of Hassan Mushaima with the Bahraini authorities at senior levels. The Bahraini authorities have assured us that Mr Mushaima has access to his medication and medical facilities. We continue to encourage those with concerns to report them to the appropriate human rights oversight body. We also continue to encourage the oversight bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations into any such claims.
