To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, further to the Answer of 4 February 2019 to Question HL13127, whether his Department relies on the assurances provided by the Bahraini Government in assessing the case of Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei’s family members; and what assessment the Government has made of information provided by independent bodies such as the UN, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch on this matter.

The British Government takes note of a number of sources of information on these issues; including publications by the UN and other Non Governmental Organisations. We continue to encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to raise them with the appropriate Bahraini human rights oversight body. We encourage the oversight bodies in Bahrain to carry out thorough and swift investigations into any such claims.
