We are aware of the cases of Mr Almalali and Mr Alarab and have raised their cases at a senior level within the Government of Bahrain.

The UK's position on the use of the death penalty is longstanding and clear; we oppose its use in all circumstances and countries. The Government of Bahrain are fully aware of our position.
