Bahrain Mirror-Exclusive: Portugal called on the Bahraini government to abolish all the death penalties issued against citizens and lift travel bans imposed on human rights activists.

This came within an intervention it made on Monday (May 1, 2017) in the 27th session of the UPR in Geneva on Bahrain's human rights record.

Portugal urged the government of Bahrain to "abolish death penalty sentences, freeze its execution and ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court". It also called it to "lift travel bans imposed on human rights activists, match its laws with international human rights law and ratify International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance."
