BBC Hardtalk: Maryam Al-Khawaja: double standards towards human rights in Bahrain



Maryam Al Khawaja is a prominent Bahraini human rights campaigner.

Her father was recently sentenced to life in prison for allegedly plotting to overthrow the Bahraini Government.

Maryam Al-Khawaja tells Hardtalk’s Stephen Sackur that Bahrain’s strategic importance to the US and UK means that sometimes human rights violations have not been properly addressed.
