I am aware of the case to which the Deputy refers, and the reports are a cause for serious concern.

We note that the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has raised the case with the UAE authorities, and we encourage the UAE to engage fully with the UN's efforts.

My Department will continue to closely monitor this case, and we await the outcome of the UN engagement.
