As the noble Lord knows from answers to previous questions and correspondence with the Minister for the Middle East and North Africa (Mr Burt), we continue to monitor the cases of family members of Mr Alwadaei who were convicted for planting hoax bombs in Bahrain. We understand that there have been continued conversations between Mr Alwadaei and the independent oversight bodies who have carried out investigations into claims of concern about treatment in detention.

We continue to encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to report these to the appropriate oversight body and for these bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations.
