Question to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office:
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what steps her Department is taking to highlight the allegations of human rights violations in Bahrain.
Bahrain is a Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office human rights priority country. We regularly raise human rights issues and individual cases with senior members of the Government of Bahrain, as well as with the independent human rights oversight bodies. We encourage those with concerns to raise them directly with the relevant oversight bodies. Our annual Human Rights Report, published last in July 2021 contains our most recent assessment -https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/human-rights-and-democracy-report-2020
