In his statement on 21 February the Minister for the Middle East and North Africa made clear his concerns at the five-year sentence handed to Mr Rajab, in addition to the two-year sentence he received in 2017. I understand that Mr Rajab has a right of appeal in this case and we will continue to monitor proceedings closely. It would not be proper to comment further whilst the case is still in progress.</p><p>We continue to encourage the Government of Bahrain to deliver on its international and domestic human rights commitments.</p> more like this

We have raised the case as part of the UK's ongoing open dialogue with Bahrain at senior levels.
