star this property answer text We judge that since 2011 a number of incremental steps have been made to strengthen the judiciary and to reform the security services in Bahrain. The UK is providing a package of technical assistance to support progress in line with the recommendations of the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry and UN Universal Periodic Review. These include the establishment of the Ministry of Interior’s Ombudsman’s Office to receive complaints and to oversee and conduct investigations, the establishment of a Prisoners’ and Detainees’ Rights Commission and reform of the National Institute of Human Rights. The British Government continues to work closely with the Government of Bahrain to provide practical assistance in torture prevention, judicial reform, civil service capacity building and community neighbourhood policing. more like this

Bahrain was one of the countries that we raised in our national statement under Item 10 of the agenda at the September session at the Human Rights Council in Geneva. We commend the steps taken by the Bahraini government to implement the recommendations set out in the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry. As outlined in our recent human rights case study on Bahrain, progress has been made in a number of areas but there is still more to be done. more like this

star this property answer text The UK regularly discusses issues of reform with the government of Bahrain. In January, My Rt Hon and noble Friend, the Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Baroness Anelay met the Bahraini justice minister and discussed the importance of holding police officers accused of mistreatment to account. Our Ambassador to Bahrain has raised our concerns over allegations of torture and mistreatment with Bahraini ministers. In addition to voicing these concerns, the UK is providing practical assistance to the Government of Bahrain to prevent the use of torture and to address allegations of its use. In particular, the UK is providing support to the Ministry of Interior’s Ombudsman and the Special Investigations Unit, both of whom have responsibility for investigating allegations against security personnel. When allegations are made, we continue to encourage the Government of Bahrain to investigate promptly, thoroughly and impartially and hold any person found guilty of such charges accountable.

We encourage the Government of Bahrain to meet all of its human rights obligations, and ensure all defendants have access to the medical care they require. Our Ambassador in Bahrain has raised our broader concerns about detainee rights and prison conditions with the Government of Bahrain at the highest levels, and will continue to do so. The UK has provided support to improving the judicial system by strengthening the checks and balances in the judicial process through working with the Ministry of Justice, Attorney General and the Supreme Judicial Council on the court administration system reform. We have also introduced members from the Attorney General’s Office and the Special Investigation Unit to the experience of the public prosecution services in UK, and will continue to provide technical support to develop independent prosecution services in line with the human rights standards.
