To ask Her Majesty's Government whether it is their policy to advise those with concerns about treatment of persons in detention in Bahrain to report those incidents to that country’s Ombudsman Office, the Ombudsman of the Ministery of Interior, and the Special Investigations Unit, given those bodies alleged role in the convictions of (1) Hajer Mansoor Hassan, (2) Sayed Nizar Nimaa Alwadaei, and (3) Mahmood Marzooq Mansoor on 30 October.

The oversight bodies in Bahrain are independent organisations whose duty it is to investigate claims of mistreatment in detention. We continue to encourage those with such concerns to report them to the appropriate oversight body, and we encourage the oversight bodies to carry out their investigations swiftly and thoroughly.
