The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and our Embassy in Bahrain are aware of the cases of Ali Hajji and Naji Fateel. We encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to raise them with the appropriate Bahraini human rights oversight body and we encourage these oversight bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations into any such claims.
