UK MPs slam govt. plan to build military in Bahrain

SHAFAQNA – Over 30 British lawmakers are opposed to the UK government’s plan to set up a military base in the Persian Gulf monarchy of Bahrain over the regime’s human rights violations.

On Monday, Fabian Hamilton and Glenda Jackson, both from Labour Party signed the motion slamming the government’s decision to establish a permanent military base at Port Mina Salman in Bahrain.

The MPs said the decision will be “upsetting to all those who have suffered human rights abuses by the Bahraini regime.”

‘Serious rights violations’

In their early day motion, 34 MPs have warned that the establishment of the UK military base in Bahrain will be seen as London’s lack of interest in justice.
