Follow this EDM by:


That this House is appalled at the decision by Bahrain to revoke the nationality of over 100 human rights defenders, doctors, journalists, bloggers and ex-parliamentarians since 2012 and most recently in January 2015 when it revoked the citizenship of 72 individuals; is concerned that this decision has made many individuals stateless; believes that amendments in Bahrain's anti-terror and nationality laws are being used to arbitrarily target activists and members of the opposition; notes the lack of respect these reprisals show for a democratic system; further notes the 2015 Annual Human Rights Watch Report detailing severe human rights abuses by Bahrain throughout 2014; further notes Amnesty International's reports and statements detailing frequent human rights abuses since the uprising of 2011; calls on Bahrain to end immediately its human rights abuses and repeal repressive laws; and urges the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to list Bahrain as a country of concern in its upcoming human rights report.
