Bahrain: Political Prisoners
To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of Bahrain about reports of reprisals against Hajer Mansoor and Sayed Nizar Alwadaei following the call for their immediate and unconditional release by the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention in January.
Answered on: 31 January 2019

We have received assurances from the Bahraini authorities that there have been no reprisals against the family members of Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei, including Hajer Mansoor and Sayed Nizar Alwadaei. We encourage those with concerns to report these to the appropriate Bahrain human rights oversight bodies and also encourage these oversight bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations into any such claims. We continue to monitor these individual cases and have raised them at senior levels with the Government of Bahrain. ​
