A Foreign Office spokesman said:

We are concerned by the decision to suspend the activities of the Bahraini opposition group, Al Wefaq, and freeze its assets. We encourage Bahrain to respect the rights of political groups to operate and to seek an inclusive political dialogue.

We are also seeking to establish the facts around the apparent prevention of a group of human rights activists from travelling to Geneva for the UN Human Rights Council, and the arrest of human rights activist, Nabeel Rajab.
