Rihanna AI Mosawi was charged with activities relating to terrorism following her arrest on 20 April 2013 at the Grand Prix circuit. We understand she has now been sentenced to five years on charges relating to terrorism. We continue to urge the Government of Bahrain to ensure that due legal process is followed. The UK takes all allegations of mistreatment against detainees seriously. We expect the Government of Bahrain to meet all of its human rights obligations, and adhere to international standards.
