To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations his Department has made to the Government of Bahrain on the political imprisonment of Hassan Mushaima and alleged abuses of his human rights during his imprisonment.
6 September 2018
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the British Embassy in Bahrain have raised the case of Hassan Musaima 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.
