To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon on 29 April (HL15263), what independent verification they will make of the “categorical assurances” from the government of Bahrain regarding the lack of urgent medical care to Hassan Mushaima; and what assessment they have made of the protest by his son Ali Mushaima outside the Royal Windsor Horse Show 2019 calling for that government to give medical care to his father.

Our Embassy in Manama and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office continue to monitor the case of Hassan Mushaima closely. We have raised the case of Mr Mushaima at senior levels with the Bahraini Government and continue to follow the case. We have received confirmation of Mr Mushaima’s recent medical appointments and assurances that Mr Mushaima will continue to have access to all necessary healthcare and medical treatment whilst in detention, as guaranteed by the Bahraini constitution.
