Najah Ahmed Yousif

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL11332, tabled on 6 November 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to Formula One to encourage it to abide by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, following the Bahraini court’s decision to uphold the three year sentence of political activist Najah Yusuf, for criticism of the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Her Majesty’s Government has not had conversations with Formula One on the details of the case of Najah Yusuf. I would refer the Noble Lord to the recent statement made by the Bahraini Government advising that the charges and conviction had no relation to the Bahrain Grand Prix, a copy of which has been placed in the Library of the House.
