To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon on 21 March (HL14745), what assessment they have made of the investigative allegations against Major Mariam Albardoli; whether they have raised these allegations with the government of Bahrain; and what steps they are taking to ensure compliance with international human rights legislation.
The UK continues to encourage the Government of Bahrain to protect human rights for all of its citizens, in line with its international obligations. We are aware of allegations of mistreatment in detention and have raised these at a senior level with the Government of Bahrain.
We encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to report these to the appropriate oversight body. We encourage the oversight bodies to carry out swift, thorough and impartial investigations.
