The UK Government, through its Embassy in Bahrain, take an active interest in cases such as that for Husain Abdulwanhab and where we have concerns we raise them with the Government of Bahrain at an appropriate level.

The Ministry of Interior Ombudsman has responsibility for investigating allegations of mistreatment in detention. We encourage all those with concerns about their treatment in detention to report these directly to the Ombudsman, and we encourage the Ombudsman to carry out thorough investigations into any such allegations. We also continue to encourage the Government of Bahrain to deliver on its international and domestic human rights commitments.
