I refer the Hon. Member to my answer of 9 June 2016 (PQ 39140). Shortly after the visit of the former Foreign Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), Zainab Al Khawaja was released from prison on 31 May 2016. We raised Zainab Al Khawaja’s case regularly at a senior level with the Government of Bahrain prior to her release from prison on 31 May 2016.
