The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and our Embassy in Bahrain continue to monitor Sheikh Ali Salman’s case closely. Embassy officials have attended every trial hearing so far. Where we have concerns we continue to raise them with the Government of Bahrain, and we continue to encourage the Government of Bahrain to deliver on its international and domestic human rights commitments.
