The Government has not provided the Bahrain Police with training on collecting relevant intelligence prior to demonstrations.

The UK continues to support Bahraini-led reform through a package of technical assistance. We believe it is not good enough to criticise countries from the sidelines. Only by working with Bahrain can we bring about the changes we would like to see in the country. Any assistance delivered by or on behalf of the Government complies with our domestic and international human rights obligations.
