Shura Foreign Affairs Committee calls on British MPs not to undermine historic Bahrain-UK relations

The Committee of Foreign Affairs, Defence and National Security at the Shura Council called on the British MPs who signed a petition demanding the release of one of the inmates at the Correction and Rehabilitation Centre to be accurate and objective in getting information from official sources. It stressed the importance of not undermining historic relations between the two friendly countries and peoples which are based on mutual respect for national sovereignty and no interference in the internal affairs of countries.


The committee affirmed the importance of not interfering in the autonomous and impartial judicial branch, stressing that all verdicts issued at the courts of the Kingdom of Bahrain take place in accordance with the best judicial standards and practices that have always been praised. It added that all defence guarantees for the defendants are applied.


The committee strongly condemned what was reported by the Qatari Al-Jazeera channel about the signing of a petition by four British MPs demanding the release of an inmate implicated in a terrorist case and sentenced to 15 years in prison in cases related to joining a group seeking to disrupt the law, train on the use of weapons and others.


The committee denounced the systematic targeting of the Kingdom of Bahrain by the Qatari Al-Jazeera channel which is deliberately disclosing false information that lacks professionalism and objectivity to shake the security and stability of Bahrain and tarnish its reputation.
