To ask Her Majesty's Government why they did not refer to reprisals against family members of human rights defender Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Human Rights and Democracy Report 2017; and whether they intend to refer to such reprisals in the Human Rights and Democracy Report 2018.

While the case of Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei and his family was not specifically mentioned in the 2017 Foreign and Commonwealth Office Human Rights and Democracy Report, the British Government has raised his case with the Bahraini Government. The noble Lord will be aware from previous answers in this House that we have received categorical assurances from the Bahraini authorities that legal cases against Mr Alwadaei’s family members are not related to Mr Alwadaei’s activities.
