We are aware of and continue to monitor the three cases raised in your question and officials from our Embassy in Manama attended their court session.

We encourage those with concerns to report these to the appropriate Bahrain human rights oversight bodies and also encourage these oversight bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations into any such claims.
