That this House expresses dismay at the ongoing human rights violations in Bahrain, especially the detention of opposition leaders like Sheikh Ali Salman, Ebrahim Sharif, Fadhel Abbas, Majid Milad and others; believes that many arrests and detentions in Bahrain are unjust and are linked to people exercising their right to freedom of expression and opinion; and calls on the Government to act to help secure the release of all prisoners of conscience in Bahrain.
