UK Taught Bahrain Police how to Whitewash Custody Deaths

Reprieve

WASHINGTON - Bahrain’s police received UK training on how to tell bereaved families that officers will not be prosecuted after a loved one has died in custody, international human rights group Reprieve has found.

The training was part of a multimillion-pound Foreign Office aid program with the Gulf kingdom, whose security forces use torture and death sentences.
