That this House expresses its concern at reports of increased violence by the Bahraini security services in the run up to and aftermath of the anniversary of pro-democracy protests in 2011; notes with deep regret the death of over 50 people during protests since last February as highlighted by Amnesty International; supports the calls in December by the UN Commissioner for Human Rights for the release of political prisoners in Bahrain and reinstatement of all those who lost their jobs as a result of participating in protests; urges the Government to put every diplomatic pressure possible on the government of Bahrain to bring about an immediate end to violence and repression against its own people; and believes the UK should not allow arms, crowd control or surveillance technology to be exported to Bahrain.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs.
