​The UK has raised the cases of Mohamed Ramadhan and Husain Moosa at a senior level with the Government of Bahrain. We welcome the investigation and recommendation of the Special Investigations Unit and the subsequent decision of the Minister of Justice to refer the cases of Mohamed Ramadhan and Husain Moosa back to the Court of Cassation for retrial. Officials from the British Embassy regularly attend court hearings of cases of interest to the UK. We will continue to closely monitor these cases.
