Bahrain Human Rights

EDM number 2252 in 2010-12, proposed by Jeremy Corbyn on 13/10/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Human rights and Middle East.

That this House notes the very precarious political climate currently existing in Bahrain due to ongoing human rights violations and the disturbing elements stirring up sectarian violence with the potential for spreading beyond Bahrain and to her neighbours; calls on the Government to make representations to the government of Bahrain to release the medical professionals who have been sentenced to up to 15 years without any solid evidence or access to a legal team, to investigate the death of a young boy who was killed by shotgun as well as raising the issue of the imprisoned opposition leaders, many of whom were tortured and have no access to medication including a Mr Hasan Mushaima, who is suffering from cancer requiring immediate attention, and to restore rights to the large number of workers who have lost their jobs due to peaceful protests calling for reform.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
