To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, if he will make representations to his Bahraini counterpart on ensuring that Bahraini political prisoner, Husain Al Sahlawi, receives urgent medical operations to remove potentially cancerous ulcer and treat a cyst on his eye which obscures his sight.
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what representations he has made to his Bahraini counterpart on political prisoner, Sayed Nizar Alwadaei who has been placed in solitary confinement after testing positive for covid-19 in violation of the UN Minimum Standard for the Treatment of Prisoners.
We have previously raised the cases of Sayed Nizar Alwadaei and Husain Al Sahlawi with senior members of the Bahraini government and we continue to monitor these cases. The Government of Bahrain has been clear that access to medical care for those in detention is provided in line with the Constitution of Bahrain. We welcome these assurances and would encourage those with any concerns about treatment in detention to raise them with the appropriate Bahraini human rights oversight body.
