Bahrain: Capital Punishment
Lords
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what representations they have made to the government of Bahrain concerning the planned executions of Hussein Ali Mousa and Mohammed Ramadan.
Answered on: 21 March 2017

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and our Embassy in Bahrain continue to closely monitor Mohammed Ramadan and Hussein Ali Mousa's cases. The UK is firmly opposed to the death penalty, and it is our longstanding policy to oppose capital sentences in all circumstances. We continue to raise concerns about these cases both in public and in private at the most senior levels. The Ombudsman and the Special Investigations Unit are continuing with investigations into complaints of torture in these cases. We encourage a swift, transparent conclusion to the investigations.
